In the digital age we live in, it is essential that we remain aware of what our children are doing online. The internet is a fantastic platform for learning, entertainment and socialising with friends and family. However, it is also an incredibly dangerous place for both adults and children alike.

As a school, we strive to educate and inform our parents and students about the risks of going online. Below there is information and links that provides you with the tools and strategies to help keep everyone safe.

At Lingdale Primary School, we have learned how to use the internet safely through watching exciting e-safety videos and these safety messages have been reinforced within the curriculum . Follow our SMART rules: 5 Top Tips to stay safe online!


Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information when you’re chatting or posting online. Personal information includes your email address, phone number and password.


Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission and even then only when they can be present. Remember online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time.


Accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, images or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages!


Someone online might lie about who they are and information on the internet may not be true. Always check information by looking at other websites, in books, or with someone who knows. If you like chatting online it’s best to only chat to your real world friends and family.


Tell a parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone, or something, makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online.

Social Media

Age limits are there to keep children safe so as parents, you shouldn’t feel pressurised into allowing younger children to join social networking websites.
