Internet Safety Day 2020!

St Mary's particiaptes in Internet Safety Day 2020

On Tuesday 11th February we joined other schools marking Safer Internet Day 2020. Safer Internet Day is a global campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology.

Across the school pupils undertook a range of activities around keeping themselves and especially their identify safe on line. 

Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote in St Mary's, and Safer Internet Day was a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year. 

Parents can also help their child by continuing conversations around on-line safety at home.

Some resources which parents and carers may find helpful in supporting children when online are:

  • Advice for parents and carers from Childnet
  • Tips, advice and guides for parents and carers from the UK Safer Internet Centre
  • Guides on popular apps and games from NetAware
  • Reviews and information about games, apps, TV shows and websites from Common Sense Media
  • Help on using parental controls and privacy settings from Internet Matters
  • 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 students about.
