Online Safety

At West Hove Infant School the children learn some simple rules for keeping themselves safe when using the computer:

If I am writing a message (postie, blog, or other message) or anything that someone else will read (e.g. a home page or wiki).

I will :

  • always ask a grown up before I use a computer;
  • only message if a grown up knows;
  • be kind and polite – do not hurt anyone’s feelings;
  • never log on as someone else;
  • only use a nickname or first name;
  • never share my address;
  • never talk to strangers;
  • be clear – write in sentences;
  • be polite – SHOUTING is rude!

If I am reading a message or looking at anything on the computer.

I will:

  • tell a grown up I trust if I don’t like something I see or it upsets me
