Dear Parents/Carers,

On Tuesday 9th February we will be joining schools and youth organisations across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day 2021. 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 more to join together in helping to create a better internet.

Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote in school and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year. Activities will be added to the website under the Safer Internet Day 2021 tab.

We would 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 Education Pack for Parents and Carers which is available at: 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:

 

  • Advice for parents and carers from Childnet
  • Guides on popular apps and games from NetAware
  • Reviews and information about games, apps, TV shows and websites from Common Sense Media
  • Information and reporting of online grooming or abuse from CEOP

 

Online safety is an important issue which as a school we’re committed to teaching our pupils about.

If you have any concerns or questions about keeping your child safe online, please do get in touch with the school or have a look at our ‘Online Safety’ tab on the website.  

Kind regards,

Mrs Jewitt
