The Five SMART E-Safety Areas are as follows:
S – Safe – This gives the children an overview of how to keep safe on the internet, from what information to share online to who you are speaking to. As well as this the children are advised when and where to use personal devices, such as mobile phones and Ipods.
M – Meeting – This makes the children aware that meeting someone online is extremely dangerous and that it should not be done under any circumstances. ‘Online Friends Stay Online!'
A – Accepting - This focuses on potential problems that can arise from opening unknown files, emails, texts, etc.
R – Reliable – This shows the children how easy it is to be misled either on the internet or over the phone, via text. In addition, the children are made aware of the fact that not all the information they find and read online is always true.
T – Tell – This highlights the fact that it is vital to tell somebody, like a friend, Teacher, parent and now an E-Safety Ambassador if they have got any issues. We also cover Cyber-Bulling and its effects.

These are update guides to help keep your child safe at home.
"The internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s. For parents and carers this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of. For many of us, this can all be a bit too much."
You might be struggling to keep up with the things your child is doing online, you might wonder whether what they are doing is safe and you might also be thinking, "how can I be as good a parent online as I am offline?" (Thinkuknow)
