Safer Internet Day 2018

“‘Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you.”


Safer Internet day was a great success with students engaging in a wide range of activities to support Safer Internet day 2018. As registered supports of Safer Internet day, students designed classroom banners highlighting ways they could use the Internet responsibly and stay safe.

Students took part in a diverse range of talks and activities concerning the issues young people face today when going online.

Classroom discussions included:

  • Keeping your information private.
  • Sexting
  • Stranger danger
  • Cyberbullying
  • How to report concerns

Students looked at ways to prevent these issues and discovered ways to report any concerns to the correct people including: a responsible adult, their teacher, parents, CEOPs, NSPCC etc.

Parent’s Coffee morning

Parents were also invited in for a coffee morning to take part in discussions relating to the most common issues surrounding the use of the Internet. They were given practical tips and techniques on how to help ensure that their youngsters stay safe online and were supplied with leaflets on what to look out for and how to initiative conversations with their children.

They were also given the opportunity to discuss any technical issues with our network manager, Rob Randles who offered them practical advice on how to block inappropriate material by setting parental controls.

The parents stated that they were delighted to be able to discuss their concerns in a relaxed atmosphere with professionals and went away feeling more confident.
