Navigate the Digital World with Confidence!

The internet is an amazing place to learn, explore, and connect, but it's important to navigate it safely and responsibly. At Newman Catholic Trust, we're here to guide you on your digital journey, ensuring you stay safe and sound online.

 

Remember these key principles:

  • Think before you click: Always question what you see online. If something seems suspicious, don't hesitate to ask a trusted adult for help.

  • Respect yourself and others: Treat everyone online with kindness and respect, just like you would in person. Remember, negativity never wins!

  • Protect your privacy: Keep your personal information safe online. Be careful about what you share on social media and other platforms.

 

Empower yourself with resources:

Talk to someone you trust:

If you ever encounter anything online that makes you feel uncomfortable, talk to a trusted adult. It could be a teacher, parent, counsellor, or any other adult you feel safe confiding in. Remember, you're never alone!

Together, let's make the internet a safe and positive space for everyone. Go forth and explore with confidence, Newman Navigators!

TOP TIPS

There are lots of things you can do to keep yourself safe online.

  • Think before you post
    Don’t upload or share anything you wouldn’t want your parents, carers, teachers or future employers seeing. Once you post something, you lose control of it, especially if someone else screenshots or shares it.

  • Don’t share personal details
    Keep things like your address, phone number, full name, school and date of birth private, and check what people can see in your privacy settings. Remember that people can use small clues like a school logo in a photo to find out a lot about you.

  • Watch out for phishing and scams
    Phishing is when someone tries to trick you into giving them information, like your password. Someone might also try to trick you by saying they can make you famous or that they’re from a talent agency. Never click links from emails or messages that ask you to log in or share your details, even if you think they might be genuine. If you’re asked to log into a website, go to the app or site directly instead.

  • Think about who you’re talking to
    There are lots of ways that people try to trick you into trusting them online. Even if you like and trust someone you’ve met online, never share personal information with them like your address, full name, or where you go to school. Find out more about grooming.

 

  • Never give out your password
    You should never give out your password or login information. Make sure you pick strong, easy-to-remember passwords.
