North Ealing School's Safer Internet Environment
Not everything you see online is true.
Everybody deserves to be treated kindly.
Safe passwords make you secure.
Share things thoughtfully.
If unsure, ask someone you trust.
Educate others by setting a good example.
Every year, we choose a NESSIE mascot to remind us of the importance of keeping safe online. This was especially important this year!
As always, every class from Years 3-6 were given time to create their NESSIE poster and were reminded about the rules of ‘North Ealing School’s Safe Internet Environment’!
Usually, our School Council would choose the winner but THIS year we asked every class to vote for THEIR favourite.
In the end, we decided to have a winner from Lower KS2 and Upper KS2.
Pupils chose Elena’s picture because it was very colourful and had a clear message.
Pupils chose Keira’s picture because it was a very strong image with a brilliant slogan.
Always remember that you can check out EVERYTHING to do with online safety on the NES Learning Zone and use the brilliant ‘Band Runner‘ Game to test out your safety level!
Did you know that some apps can use YOUR PICTURES and SELFIES without paying you? Always check the terms and conditions! This includes Whatsapp and Instagram!
Nessie suggests that you turn on PRIVACY SETTINGS. Some messages and pictures you send can give others details of exactly where you are!
THINK CAREFULLY before you send a picture to somebody. Once they have it, they can pass it on to others! Be Cyber Sensible!
Nessie surfs her home all the time but still rests! Nessie suggests some time AWAY from screens to enjoy the real world as well!!
Nessie’s home gets polluted by tourists leaving litter! Make sure you don’t litter up the internet with unkind, thoughtless or cruel comments. Make the internet A BETTER PLACE!!
Nessie can’t leave DIGITAL FOOTPRINTS but you do every time you go online. Make sure you tread carefully!
Nessie loves fish! Sometimes, people ‘phish’ on the internet and try and trick you with ‘too good to be true’ offers. If it seems too good to be true, it’s probably a trick! DON’T GO THERE!
Lots of people want a picture of Nessie and tell her how special she is. FLATTERY online means that somebody wants to gain your trust. THINK FIRST!!
NESSIE CAME FROM MARS SCIENTISTS CLAIM. Not everything you read online is true. Always check the information somewhere else or ask a grown-up what they think about it!
Nessie asks that you NEVER post anything online without the other person’s permission. RESPECT THE PRIVACY OF OTHERS.
Nessie stays safe by hiding away. She reminds you that BEING ONLINE IS NOT HIDING – you can be traced!
Nessie reminds you to THINK BEFORE YOU SQUEEZE!
In school, your teachers and grown-ups are here to help. At home, your parents/carers are there to help. TALK TO US if you have any worries.
Nessie knows that you will NEVER SHARE emails, passwords, telephone numbers, addresses or other personal details with strangers. If you don’t know the person asking, they might not be who they say they are it!
