Pupils at Oasis Academy Fir Vale took part in workshops aimed at staying safe online.

They covered topics ranging from protecting your personal information to ‘stranger danger’.

This school-wide effort involved pupils creating posters.

Helen Round, Principal of Fir Vale Oasis Academy, said:

“It is essential we provide children with the knowledge of what is okay to share online and what isn’t.”

Top five tips to be safe online

  • Tip 1: Don’t give out any personal information, like street and address, telephone number, financial details.

  • Tip 2: Do not meet up alone with someone you’ve met online.

  • Tip 3: Do not enter strange or inappropriate websites.

  • Tip 4: Remember not everyone online is who they say they are.

  • Tip 5: If you see something online which makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer, and tell a trusted adult immediately.
