People think that e-safety is just computers, they need to remember its not. It also includes; mobile phones, game consoles, camera and television (if connected to the Internet). The Internet is used on a regular basis for knowledge and communication, but children and even adults do not realise how dangerous the Internet can be. Within the Internet there are many dangers, three are:

  • Strangers
  • Viruses
  • Inappropriate adverts and context

This means children need to aware of both the advantages and disadvantages of the Internet. So therefore, it is important to give children rules when using any form of the Internet, to ensure that children are safe. The video below expresses the importance of not giving out personal details.

Both St Marys Primary abd School Jotters provide good posters for children for e-safety.
