At Futures Institute e-safety and online education remain a priority. The world is constantly changing and every student receives an on-going education to help them stay safe online. No child should be using social networks before the age of 13, and after that age, all Internet use – including mobile phones – should be closely monitored by parents.

CEOP Thinkuknow Factsheets
CEOP provides a number of factsheets for parents. We would recommend you create your own account to access them independently but if this is not possible the Academy will help you to get a printed copy.
Cyber bullying is when someone uses the internet or mobiles to deliberately upset someone else. This is a form of bullying and you shouldn’t have to put up with it.
What to do if you are a victim…
- Save all evidence you have of the bullying. If you have nasty emails or things posted on your profile save them to your machine so you can use it as proof. Save texts or voicemails that say anything horrible. Learn how to block the bully on IM or delete them from your contacts. Screen shot any messages that can’t be saved.
- Try not to reply or retaliate to things they say or do; it might make the situation worse. If you don’t respond, they are more likely to get bored and move on.
- If you are being bothered via text, contact your service provider. Each network has a special area for this sort of problem. Check out their website or call them for advice or a free number change.
