Safer Internet Day was celebrated on Tuesday, 11 February 2020, when, once again, stakeholders joined forces across the globe to work “Together for a better internet“.
Digital technologies provide you with a world of possibilities at your fingertips. Never before have we enjoyed so many opportunities to learn, exchange, participate and create. Yet, the internet also opens up certain risks to its users – especially the most vulnerable ones, such as children: privacy concerns, cyberbullying, disinformation, exposure to potentially harmful content and predatory behaviours, to quote but a few.
How can we ensure access to a safe and stimulating online environment for the greatest number, where they can make the most of a wealth of opportunities, while at the same time mitigating its negative side-effects? Together, we have the power to inspire positive changes online and to raise awareness of the issues that matter to us.
We had 2 Internet Safety Assemblies to discuss online identity, the importance of not sharing personal information online and consider our online behaviour when playing games and sending messages. All the classes have also been looking at safe internet behaviour and our older children were also reminded about the age restrictions on social media platforms. Please visit our E Safety pages for further guidance.
