This is our E-SAFETY Throstie. It was designed by Amber Arnell as part of a competition to promote online safety. The Throstie combines the 3 very important rules for online safety namely: ZIP IT, BLOCK IT and FLAG IT.
ZIP IT means keeping their personal stuff private and thinking about what they say or do online.
BLOCK IT reminds them to block people who send them nasty messages and not to open any links and attachments they receive by e-mail or through social networks if they’re not 100 per cent sure they’re safe.
FLAG IT is the final piece of advice. It stands for flagging up to a parent, guardian, teacher or someone in authority anything that upsets them while they are online or if someone asks them to meet up in the real world.
