Following on from the e-safety assemblies and safer Internet week here are some top tips on how to stay safe online 

  • Don't post personal information online, like your address, your email address or mobile number. Keep personal information as general as possible.

  • Never let anyone have access to your passwords. Check the privacy settings on accounts like Facebook and make sure you know how to keep your personal information private.

  • Think very carefully before posting photos of yourself online. Once your picture is online, anyone can download it and share it or even change it.

  • Never respond or retaliate, as this can just make things worse. It might be difficult, but try to ignore the bullies.

  • Block any users that send you nasty messages.

  • Save and print out any bullying messages, posts, pictures or videos you receive or see.  Report your concerns.

  • Make a note of the dates and times of bullying messages, along with any details you have about the sender's ID and the URL.

  • Don't pass on cyberbullying videos or messages.

  • If you're being bullied repeatedly, think about changing your user ID, nickname or profile. Report your concerns.

  • Don't ignore it. If you see cyberbullying going on, report it and offer your support. Tell your tutor, parents or head of year. 

  • Google yourself every now and again. It will show you what is online about you and what others can see and you can make changes if you don't like what you see.

Report anything that you are worried about to your parents, tutor, head of year or a teacher.
