Safer Internet Day

February 7th 2017 is Safer Internet Day, a day that is very important to our school and pupils. Safer Internet Day is run 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 and the theme for this year is 'Be the Change: Unite for a better internet'. (www.saferinternetday.org.uk)

To celebrate the many positives of the internet, and to raise awareness of the issues that children and young people face online today, we will be hosting an online safety information evening for parents and carers of children in every year group and we will be delivering the presentation. The UK Safer Internet Centre are experts in the field of online and mobile safety education and we highly recommend that you attend this event. The session will provide practical advice and safety tips to help manage online safety issues, and discussions surrounding suitable behaviour online.

The session will be on Tuesday 7th February starting at 5.30pm and will last for 30 minutes with time for questions too.

We believe that internet safety education is a crucial element of the curriculum and an essential part of young people's development. The session is designed to help you become more aware of the safety messages that your children receive in school in order to reinforce them in your home environment.

We really hope that you will be able to attend and look forward to seeing you there.
