Online safety agreement for young people

The Code Zone understands the importance of children being able to use the internet for education and personal development. This includes social media platforms, games and apps.

We aim to support children and young people in making use of these in our work. However, we also recognise that safeguards need to be in place to ensure children are kept safe at all times. This agreement is part of our overarching code of behaviour for children and young people and staff and volunteers. It also fits with our overarching online safety policy. If you would like to know more about this, please speak to a customer service representative. 

More information about online safety is available from the NSPCC

Young person: please read the following agreement and discuss it with your parents/carers and group leader.

Parents/carers: please read and discuss this agreement with your child and make sure they understand the code of conduct. If you have any questions or concerns please speak to a customer service representative.

Young person’s agreement

• I will be responsible for my behaviour when using the internet, including social media platforms, games and apps. This includes the resources I access and the language I use.

•I will not deliberately browse, download or upload material that could be considered offensive or illegal. If I accidentally come across any such material I will report it immediately to the group leader.

• I will not send anyone material that could be considered threatening, bullying, offensive or illegal.

• I will not give out any personal information online, such as my name, phone number or address.

• I will not reveal my passwords to anyone.

• I will not arrange a face-to-face meeting with someone I meet online unless I have discussed this with my parents and/or group leader and am accompanied by a trusted adult.

• If I am concerned or upset about anything I see on the internet or any messages that I receive, I know I can talk to my mentor.

I understand that my platform & chat system use at The Code Zone will be monitored and logged and can be made available to the group leader. I understand that these rules are designed to keep me safe and that if I choose not to follow them, The Code Zone may contact my parents/carers.

By registering at The Code Zone you agree to this policy and understand that you must comply with it at all times.
