Staying Safe Online

Blog Rules

Keep your details private

Never use your last name on your page

Never post or give your home email, home address, telephone or mobile number to anyone.

Keep your passwords safe. Don’t give them to anyone. If you think someone else knows it, tell your teacher immediately.

You may not log in using anyone else’s user name or password.

Ask permission before you write about anyone.

Only put links that the school has approved of on your weblog.

You may not post anything that is rude or insulting to others.

Remember, even if you post from home, the school’s internet rules still apply.

Respect copyright
It is against the law to copy other people’s work and post it on your blog as if it was your own. You may post quotes from people as long as you tell your readers who said it.

Every blog is monitored by your teachers. If someone breaks a rule the following may happen:

You may be asked to put it right
Your parents may be informed
You will be warned about your future behaviour
Your blog/password may be temporarily suspended, or even deleted
Anyone who keeps breaking the rules will no longer be allowed to blog
