E-Safety for Children

You can use your computer, mobile phone or tablet for lots of fun things and to connect with people from all over the world.

Remember! If you are worried about anything you see online, or people are asking you questions about where you live or saying mean things to you, please speak to your parents or a trusted adult. You can follow the links below for help and advice.


Top Tips

  • Always ask a grown up before you use the internet. They can help you find the best thing to do.
  • Don’t tell strangers where you live, your phone number or where you go to school. Only your friends and family need to know that.
  • Don’t send pictures to people you don’t know. You don’t want strangers looking at photos of you, your friends or your family.
  • Tell a grown up if you feel scared or unhappy about anything.
  • Remember! People you have only talked to on the internet are strangers, even though they may sometimes feel like friends. You should never arrange to meet with someone you have met on the internet without checking with your parents first as it could be dangerous.
