Online Safety

At Ripley Junior School we are very aware of the importance of teaching online safety to all of our pupils.

We have an online safety policy in place to safeguard and protect all members of the school community. Online safety is taught regularly across the school curriculum, we mark Safer Internet Day each February and we react to issues as they arise in our school community. We believe that our pupils should be empowered to build resilience and to develop strategies to manage and respond to risk online both at home and school. 

At school we teach children to be SMART online.

Our final advice

Being online can be exciting and fun – but some things online can leave you feeling upset, worried or confused. If you feel any of these things when you’re online it’s important to know where to get help.


1. Talk to someone!
It’s great to talk and it can really help you feel better about things. There’s lots of people you can talk to, such as friends, family members and teachers or pop it in your class worry box. 


2. Make a report.
If something has happened on a service like a game or social media site, you might be able to make a report. You can often report other users if they’ve done something to upset or worry you. You can also report content – such as hurtful comments or upsetting photos that you don’t want to see.


3. Call Childline.
If you’re really unsure about what to do and you don’t have anyone you can talk to, then remember you can always call Childline on 0800 11 11 or visit their website for more advice
