Safer Internet Day 2019

5th February 2019

We have really enjoyed activities related to Safer Internet Day and it has had a positive impact for our pupils when they are online as we have discussed what constitutes personal information and the need for keeping this private. 

50% of KS2 children have reset their privacy settings in games and on social media and 38% of children have removed people they don’t know from their games.

In Y1 and Y2, 58% of children have asked parents and carers about going online. They all know not to talk to strangers.

Our pupils also recognise the importance of a good night’s sleep and that they should switch off screens at least one hour before bed. There are lots of useful resources which can be found on our website on the ‘Parents’ Page – Online Safety’ and include some useful links on how to set parental controls.

 

Safer Internet Day (SID 2019) have  a wealth of resources on their website. Watch the videos to get children's views on what photos and videos parents share or take the quiz: Your choice or Mine? These can also be found on the Parents' Page under Online Safety.

"Do parents and their children have the same or differing opinions on a range of online consent topics."

Your Choice or Mine is a great conversation starter that lets parents and young people share views and learn from one another. Safer Internet Day's aim is to inspire conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. Why not try this at home with your child(ren)?

Year 3 have got the ball rolling with their Safer Internet Day work.
 

Year 1 have enjoyed looking at ways we can keep safe online.  We watched a video of Zap and Zoom, and learned the key rules for asking permission when playing games online.

Following on from this, we decided to write letters to some of the Reception children, telling them how they can keep safe online.

Year 6 have written some super stories - all with good advice about adjusting privacy settings and being careful with online 'friends'.
