On Tuesday 11th February we will be joining schools and youth settings across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day 2020. 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 wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet.
Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote in Templepatrick Primary School and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year.
We’d be delighted if you could join us in celebrating the day by continuing the conversation at home. To help you with this you may be interested in downloading the free Safer Internet Day resource pack for parents and carers which is available here: saferinternet.org.uk/sid-parents.
There are also top tips, a quiz and films which you can use at home with your child.
Some other resources which you may find helpful in supporting your child online are:
Online safety is an important issue which as a school we’re committed to teaching our whole learning community about. Tuesday 11th February is just one opportunity to focus on Internet Safety, but every day needs to be Safer Internet Day!
