Online Safety Talk - Cumbria Constabulary
Our local PCSO, Pete, spoke to all our classes about online safety.
He spoke to our KS2 classes about the dangers of speaking to people online. He gave the example of a person who superimposed a photograph of a teen on to images in order to fool a teenager to meet them. When the teen went to meet this person they were faced with a 50 year old man, as opposed to their teenage friend who they thought they were meeting.
He highlighted the fact that they were unlikely to speak to people they do not know outside, so why would it be ok to speak to people they don’t know online.
We also spoke about age limits and that these are to help protect people from being exposed to something that is inappropriate or could make us worried. As well as road safety.
The Kidsafe rules of speaking to a trusted adult were reinforced during this session.
