Always be careful when you are using the internet. It can help you to keep in touch with your friends and help your education – but it can also cause harm – to you and to others.
Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online.
Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.

Tips for staying safe online:
- Know how to use the CEOP Button and how to report it to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards you.
- Only talk to people you know and trust in real life.
- Don't give away personal information to strangers, such as where you live or where you go to school. Say 'no' if they ask you to share photos or videos of yourself.
- Set your profiles to private.
- Be 'share aware' - once you share something online, you have no control over what anyone else does with it.
- If you see something upsetting, or someone bullies you, tell an adult you trust.
- Don't assume everything you see is true to life. People often make their lives see more exciting online.
