If you're between 8 and 11, you probably know a lot about using the internet. Even though you've been using the internet for a while you can still make sure you keep yourself safe. You can find more information at:
- The internet is just like the real world - kind people use the internet, but some nasty people do too.
- It's important that you are nice and kind when you use the computer to talk to people. Even if you can't see someone, things you write might still upset them.
