Fun Online for All: Safer Internet Day 2022
This week we have joined schools across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day 2022. Safer Internet Day is a global campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology, which calls on young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers and more, to join together in helping to create a better internet. The theme for this year’s Safer Internet Day is respect and relationships online, with a focus on online gaming.
Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote in school, and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year. For our Upper School pupils we have designed a survey that asks them to consider how they use the internet both in school and at home. The results of this survey will help us to tailor our e-safety programme to the children for rest of this year and beyond. We will also be sharing some of the findings with parents at our e-safety talk held towards the end of term. Our Middle and Lower School pupils have been learning about the importance of treating people respectfully online, and understanding the differences, and similarities, between online and face-to-face play.
To help reinforce this message, you may be interested in downloading the free Safer Internet Day Resources for Parents and Carers which is available at: saferinternet.org.uk/sid-parents.
There are top tips, quizzes, and films which you can use at home with your child.
If you do have any concerns or questions about keeping your child safe online, please do get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
