Students at Ysgol Eirias were joined by PC Dewi Owen for an online presentation on Cyber Crime recently.
Advice was offered on being mindful of hackers and scammers as well as to be careful of(add) people posing to be their friends.
Students were warned about the permanent nature of what they put online (even if it deleted) and they were also given lots of guidance on reporting inappropriate or harmful content. The following links were shared with the students:

Talk to your children about Internet Safety - we all need to know about hackers, scammers and phishing (sending scam messages) as well as how to report harmful activity.
We now have a page of the school website (Staying Safe Online) dedicated to internet safety where you can find a wealth of guidance and informative documents that cover many areas of digital literacy and how to navigate the various challenges that can occur with online awareness.
