Safer Internet Day

Tuesday 11th February was Safer Internet Day. A day that is used nationally to raise awareness of how to keep safe on the Internet.

Miss Beckwith and Mrs Marshman started the day in assembly, talking about the Internet and all the different things it is used for. The school’s Internet Safety Rules have been updated and these were introduced during assembly too.

During the day we completed activities to learn the new rules and understand why we have them. The children have learnt that they need to keep your personal information and passwords secret and we discussed what you should share online and what you shouldn’t share. The children have learnt that they should always ask an adult’s permission before going online and they should ask a grown-up for help if they see something they are unsure of. Using different avatars the children were encouraged to understand that some people could be real, while others could be pretending. Finally we all want to  ‘Enjoy’ using the Internet and discussed that the internet is for having fun but making sure you STAY SAFE at the same time.
