‘All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online’.

On Tuesday 8th February we will be celebrating Safer Internet Day 2022 and the children in school will be doing lots of fun activities throughout the week.  

Why don’t you complete this questionnaire with your child at home, it may lead to some interesting discussions:

Safer Internet Day Questionnaire

Our Digital Leaders have recorded an assembly which will be shared with the children on Safer Internet Day in school.  The children will all have the chance to enter a competition too where they may either have to write a story or design a character! All will be revealed when the winners are posted on the website.   

Don’t forget our friends from the Openzone will be hosting a Google Meet on Keeping Safe in the Online World on  Wednesday 8th  and Thursday 9th of February at 4.30pm – the link has been shared  in Seesaw but if you need it please email Mrs Jewitt on [email protected]

This quiz has been created for children in KS2 – it will be live all of this week and can be done at school or at home.  You will need your Purple Mash details so if you don’t have them, ask your teacher.

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  Resources for Parents and Carers which is available at: saferinternet.org.uk/sid-parents.

There are top tips, quizzes, 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 pupils about.

If you have any concerns or questions about keeping your child safe online, please do get in touch  with your child’s class teacher, myself or any of our Safeguarding Leaders.

Kind regards,
