Safer Internet Day 2023
This academic year, Safer Internet Day is 7th February 2023.
Internet safety is celebrated globally in February each year in over a hundred countries to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people and inspire a national conversation.
From cyberbullying to social networking to digital identity, each year Safer Internet Day aims to raise awareness of emerging online issues and current concerns.
Throughout the school year, we continue to focus on internet safety, positive uses of technology, and what to do if the children feel unsafe when using the internet/online gaming etc. We use quality resources from Safer Internet Centre and Google's Be Internet Legends scheme.

As part of the annual Safer Internet Day, our school council lead an online safety assembly on the Monday morning to celebrate the start of a week of internet safety related activities across school.
They have also created a set of Online Safety Golden Rules. We have all signed to show we agree to the rules and these are displayed in every classroom. They may be useful for you to use at home too!

We must follow these Online Safety Golden Rules to make sure we are safe and comfortable using the internet.
Only go on the internet when a grown up is in the room.
Only use websites that adults say are safe.
Don’t tell anyone your password.
Never share your full name, where you go to school or where you live.
Never share photos or use a webcam with people you don’t know in the real world.
Always tell a grown up you trust if someone has upset you and remember to treat people how you would like to be treated
