Internet Safety Day
7th February 2023
Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote here at Staincliffe, and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year.
We have looked at issues related to this year’s theme – being respectful online – which is a nice link to one of our school values!
Support for parents and carers
There is always support available if you need it. Contact the school directly if you have any worries concerning your child’s safety online.

SAFE - Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information when you’re chatting or posting online. Personal information includes your email address, phone number and password.
MEET - Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Remember online friends are still strangers.
ACCEPT - Accepting emails, messages, or opening files, images or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages!
RELIABLE - Someone online might lie about who they are and information on the internet may not be true. Always check information by looking at other websites, in books, or with someone who knows.
TELL - Tell a parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone, or something, makes you feel uncomfortable or worried.
