Safer Internet Day 2016 took place on Tuesday 9th February across the UK, with the theme Play your part for a better internet! We celebrated the day by inviting parents to engage in online safety and promoting the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children. Children throughout the school were also involved in a variety of e-safety activities, showing their enthusiasm in using technology and raising their awareness of internet safety.
A group of Year 5 children presented some issues around e-safety and gave advice on what both parents and children could do to stay safe online.
Working with Islington Council, Computing lead teacher, Daniel Ferry, also highlighted the importance of using digital technology in a positive and safe manner.
Following this, Dan shared some useful letters on internet safety and happily answered parents' questions. These information letters have been circulated today to all the children to take home.
We are all excited to be using fantastic technology, but always remember to be SMART online:
SAFE Keep your personal information safe
MEET Friends made online are strangers; meeting them can be dangerous
ACCEPTING Accepting files can be dangerous. If unsure, ask an adult!
RELIABLE Not everyone or everything online is reliable or trustworthy
TELL Always tell an adult if something online upsets or worries you
