Safer Internet Day

Safer Internet Day

February 6th 2018 was Safer Internet Day, a day that is very important to our school and pupils. Safer Internet Day is coordinated by the Insafe network and is celebrated every year across Europe, and in other countries worldwide.

In the UK, Safer Internet Day is organised by the UK Safer Internet Centre (www.saferinternetday.org.uk), and this year’s theme was“Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”. Our school participated alongside hundreds of other schools across the UK to better understand how we can all use the internet positively. At Connaught Junior School, pupils took part today in a variety of activities around this theme.

If you wish to help your child with their internet safety at home, there is an excellent education pack for parents and carers on the Safer Internet Day website. The pack contains activities for home, conversation starters, a family pledge and information about other online safety services.

Please also take the time to visit our E-Safety page on the school website. This is a page dedicated to signposting parents to organisations and services that can offer guidance about keeping your child safe online.

We really hope that your child enjoyed Safer Internet Day and that you are able to continue helping them develop their positive use of the internet.
