Smart Rules for the Internet

Learn how to be SAFE ON THE INTERNET

Learning about staying safe online is very important. At Welbourne Primary School we make sure our pupils are aware of some of the risks to safety that are online and what to do to stay safe. We have a set of rules which the children are expected to follow at home and in school to make sure they stay safe online. These rules can be viewed below and should be followed when using all kinds of technology such as mobile phones, games consoles, and home computers.

Follow the S.M.A.R.T. Rules when using the internet both at home and at school.



Rules for Responsible Internet Use

The school has installed computers, Chromebooks, and tablets with internet access to help our learning.

These rules will help keep us safe and help us be fair to others.

I will only access the computer system with the login and password I have been given;

I will not bring in data pens or CDs from outside school and try to use them on the school computers.

Using the internet:

I will ask permission from a teacher before using the internet.

I will turn off my monitor and report any unpleasant material I encounter to my teacher immediately.

Using e-mail:

In school, I will ask permission from a teacher before checking my e-mail.

I will immediately report to an adult any unpleasant messages sent to me.
