Stay Safe Online


The internet is, chat rooms, finding out information! We want you to be completely safe when using the internet so that you enjoy and use it properly. Safety on the internet is called E-safety - the E stands for Electronic!

    Statement of intent


    The Rivers C of E Multi Academy Trust understands that using online services is an important aspect of raising educational standards, promoting pupil achievement, and enhancing teaching and learning. The use of online services is embedded throughout the school; therefore, there are a number of controls in place to ensure the safety of pupils and staff.


    The breadth of issues classified within online safety is considerable, but they can be categorised into four areas of risk:


    • Content: Being exposed to illegal, inappropriate or harmful material.
    • Contact: Being subjected to harmful online interaction with other users.
    • Conduct: Personal online behaviour that increases the likelihood of, or causes, harm.
    • Commerce: Risks such as online gambling, inappropriate advertising, phishing and/or financial scams.


    The measures implemented to protect pupils and staff revolve around these areas of risk. Cranham Primary School's aim is to ensure appropriate and safe use of the internet and other digital technology devices by all pupils and staff. We also encourage children to follow our guidance at home or when away from school.

    Information for parents from West Mercia Police:


    Cyberbullying and online harassment


    Cyberbullying and online harassment can be extremely distressing. They can even be classed as criminal offences in some cases. However, there are plenty of organisations you can turn to for help, including charities, social media service providers, and the police


    What is cyberbullying and online harassment?

    *Making comments or posts online that are deliberately abusive, offensive, threatening, or inflammatory.

    *Liking and sharing this kind of abuse can also count as bullying and harassment.


    Online bullies and harassers use all sorts of platforms, including social media (like Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram), forums, gaming sites, comments sections, mobile phone chat groups and more.


    There is a very detailed definition of cyberbullying at:


    How you can stay safer


    Think before you post: when posting or commenting online, consider what you say and what effect it may have. Never post comments that are abusive, threatening or are likely to cause offence to others.


    Keep personal information personal: do not say anything or publish pictures that might later cause you or someone else embarrassment. Be aware of what friends post about you, or how they reply to your posts – particularly about your personal details and activities.


    Make the most of privacy settings: keep your profiles closed, allowing access only to your chosen friends and family.


    Social media: Social media have help sections which can show you how to block users, change your privacy and contact settings, and report abusive content. See below for individual websites.


    • Facebook -
    • Twitter -
    • Instagram -
    • LinkedIn -
    • Google+ -
    • YouTube -
    • Pintrest -
    • Tumblr -
    • Snapchat -


    Report cyberbullying to internet service providers: lots of content online is offensive or upsetting. It’s not always a criminal offence, but it often violates the terms and conditions established by social media sites and internet service providers. Service providers are often keen to take action against users who abuse their terms of service.


    Remember: If you believe that you are the victim of online bullying, keep a record of the content (for example, take a screenshot). You can use this to help your report to the service provider and, if necessary, the police.
