Cyberbullying - POLITE
Wiltshire Police is pleased to tell you that your local neighbourhood policing team has recently delivered a cyberbullying ‘POLITE’ language lesson plan to your year 5 and year 6 children.
Following increasing reports from schools and parents that younger and younger children are bullying others using mobile phones, apps, social networking sites, and emails, we have devised a targeted lesson plan around the use of appropriate language. We aim to reduce the number of cyberbullying incidents through the use of the POLITE mnemonic.
We have been encouraging your children to think carefully about their choice of language when using mobile technology. We want them to consider if their messages will cause others to be upset or distressed, to think before they press send, to re-read the message, and to expect a nice reply.
P for Prepare - Think about the content of the message and whether it could be misunderstood.
O for Only - Only press send when you have re-read and checked the content.
L for Look Again - Could your message upset anyone?
I for I Would be Happy to Receive This Message - That’s a good thing!
T for Talk Face to Face - Sometimes, it may be easier to say what you mean.
E for Expect a Nice Reply - We all want to receive nice messages and comments.
