This Tuesday is Safer Internet Day. It is celebrated across the globe and is a good opportunity for you to focus on online safety with your child, whether it’s having a chat about what they like to do online, using some of the specific activities on the links below or just using their favourite apps or games with them.
The theme this year is ‘All Fun and Games’ which is about exploring respect and relationships online. From gaming and chat, to streaming and video, young people are shaping the interactive entertainment spaces they are a part of. Safer Internet Day 2022 celebrates young people’s role in creating a safer internet, whether that’s whilst gaming and creating content, or interacting with their friends and peers.
Although online safety is something that we regularly discuss with the children in school as part of their Computing and PSHE lessons, on Tuesday there will be an increased focus throughout school. We will be holding a special assembly for each key stage and each class will be participating in activities appropriate to their age group.
