Internet Safety Day 9.2.16
On Tuesday 9th February 2016, millions across the UK and globally are celebrating Safer Internet Day. For parents and carers, Safer Internet Day is a great time to have a conversation with their child about staying safe online.
For Safer Internet Day 2016 the theme is 'Play your part for a better internet' and young people from across the UK are considering what they can do to help make the internet a kinder place. Perhaps you could talk to your child about what actions they could take to make the internet a kinder place?
Often we hear about the negative impact that the internet and new technology has on young people, but on Safer Internet Day we want to celebrate the positives and to explore what we can all do to make sure that all young people have a positive time online. Parents and carers play a crucial role in supporting children to navigate the risks and make the most of the opportunities offered by technology. The most important thing you can do is to have a conversation and stay engaged with your children's digital lives.
Today we have shared the adventures of Smartie Penguin who received a new lap top for his birthday and encountered all sorts of problems. Fortunately, with the help of our Internet Safety Committee, the children all learnt about how to stay safe on the internet.
