The key ingredients for a safer internet

Last week, to celebrate safer internet day we hosted a competition and invited you to send in your pupil suggestions on how to make the internet a safer place.

We were thrilled with the entries we recieved so thought we'd compile some of our favourites to share!

1) Have a secret password and keep it to yourself

2) Don't click on pop-ups, be careful of spyware

3) Don't except cookies, don't send messages to people you don't know

4) Never click on a program that can make a virus on your computer

5) Never click on something perverted, videos or things that you don't want to do or see.
