SAFER INTERNET DAY
A day recognised globally to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology
Tuesday 9th February was Safer Internet Day. This day is recognised globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people and to inspire a national conversation. We always recognise this day in school and spend the week teaching our e-safety lessons. As things are a little different this year, we won’t teach these lessons until all the children are all back in school, however we still celebrated Safer Internet Day.
Promoting positive use of technology and keeping children safe online is a joint effort between parents and schools and this year, remote learning gave parents an opportunity to lead the learning and to have that conversation with their children. All the children were asked to make a poster which describes the rules they have at home to keep them safe online and we saw some great examples.
Just like any rules and boundaries we set as parents, online safety rules need to be constantly reviewed and talked about especially as the children get older and use new technology.
The NSPCC have written some great guides to help parents have these conversations.
