Some top tips for staying safe on social networking sites:

  1. Don’t post any personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number. Remember: what you post is available for all to see.
  2. Tell your teacher or parent/carer straight away if you find something that worries you!
  3. Do not worry that you will get into trouble. If something happens, you will not be blamed for something done by someone else.
  4. Behave in a responsible and appropriate manner when using computers, the internet and mobile phones. Remember – Ready, Respectful and Responsible!
  5. Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself. Once you’ve put a picture of yourself online most people can see it and may be able to download it, it’s not just yours anymore.
  6. Keep your privacy settings as high as possible
  7. Your password is secret. Keep it secret, even from your friends, even your best friend.
  8. Choose a strong password – use a combination of upper case, lower case, symbols and numbers
  9. Never try to bypass the School safety systems. They are there to protect you. Getting around them is a serious breach of our Code of Conduct
  10. Ask permission from your teacher or parent/carer to post anything on a public website or send any information to anyone.
  11. Remember – You cannot erase your activity.
  12. Don’t befriend people you don’t know
  13. Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online. Speak to your parent or carer about people suggesting you do.
