Online Safety

At Cherry Orchard pupils are expected to follow our e-safety rules as outlined in our Online Safety and Acceptable Use Policy.  In PSHE and Computing lessons pupils are reminded of e safety rules:  

Our E Safety Rules

These rules help us to stay safe online

  • We ask permission before using the Internet.
  • We only use websites that an adult has chosen.
  • We can click on the buttons or links when we know what they do.
  • We can search the Internet with an adult.
  • We immediately close any webpage we are not sure about.
  • We never give out personal information or passwords.
  • We never arrange to meet anyone we don’t know.
  • We write polite and friendly to people that we know
  • We understand that if we break the rules that sanctions will be taken.
  • If we see something which makes us feel uncomfortable we say something to a trusted adult.

Below are some links to help stay safe when using technology.
