On Tuesday 9th February we celebrated Safer Internet Day. This year’s theme was about being kind to each other on the internet. We talked about how to be kind to each other when using the internet to communicate. We thought of ideas of how to keep us all safe online and what to do if we read or see something that worries us.
In year 5 we were very lucky to get a visit from our local Neighbourhood Police team. PC Bradbury and two of her colleagues came in to talk to us about the risks of talking to strangers online and making sure we only share our information with people that we know in the real world too. The children wrote out their pledge for a safer internet and what they were going to do to keep themselves safe online.
Later in the week, the children showed us how mature and sensible they are and are well informed on how to keep themselves safe online. The children decided to make posters to share in the ICT suite to help some of our younger children understand how to keep safe – we will publish them here once they are on display.
There is a vast range of information available to help you and your children stay safe online. Why not visit www.thinkuknow.co.uk/ for more information?
