Online Safety for Children

Being online can be fun but sometimes you may see something that makes you feel worried or sad.

If that happens, tell an adult you trust and they can help.

This could be:

  • Your dad, mum or carer
  • Another family member
  • Your teacher or another adult at school
  • Another grown up who looks after you


Watching Videos

It can be fun to watch videos online but sometimes you might see or hear something that makes you feel worried, scared or sad.

It is best to watch videos online when there is a grown up watching with you, not on your own.


Sharing Pictures

Taking pictures with your friends and family can be lots of fun! Before you take or share a picture, remember:

  • Always ask for permission before you take somebody’s picture.
  • Only share pictures with people who you know and trust offline.
  • If you want to share a picture of someone else, always ask them if it’s OK first. If they say ‘No’, don’t share it.
  • You have the right to say ‘No’ to a picture of you being shared with other people.
  • If you’re sent a picture or see something that makes you feel worried or sad, tell an adult you trust and they can help.


Chatting Online

If you are chatting to people by sending messages or on video when you are online, only chat to people who you know and trust in real-life like family and friends. 

It is easy for people to pretend when they are online. They might not always be who they say they are, or say what they really mean.


  • If someone says something that makes you feel worried, scared or sad, tell an adult you trust.
  • If someone you don’t know tries to chat to you online, tell an adult you trust.
  • Sometimes people online can be unkind. If someone says something mean online or makes you feel sad, tell a grown up you trust.
  • If someone says something which makes you feel worried, scared or sad, remember you don’t have to reply. Not replying and switching off  your phone, tablet or game can help you feel better.


Personal Information

Personal information is information that belongs only to you and you shouldn’t share this online. Examples of personal information include:

  • Your real name
  • Where you live
  • Your age
  • Where you go to school and any clubs you go to
  • Your phone number
  • Your username and password
  • Pictures of yourself, your family and friends



Playing an online game with your real-life friends can be great fun. You should only play with people who you know and trust offline, like friends from school.

Some games are only for grown ups or older children. Ask your parent or carer to check that the game you’re playing is OK for children your age to play.

If you ever feel worried, scared or sad about something that happens when you are playing a game, tell an adult you trust.


Here are our tips and tricks we use to being safe online:

1. If you get upset by anything, show an adult.

2. Don't accept friend requests from people you don't know.

3. Do not talk to people you don't know.

4. Are your parent's happy you're on that website?

5. Never give out personal information.

6. Keep your password a secret. Shhh!

7. Think about what pictures you want people to see. Once they're up there, everyone can see them.

8. Not everyone is who they say they are. Double check that person is your friend.

9. Do not meet up with people you've met online.

10. Be sensible.

 These people are always there for you to talk to if you are worried about anything.
