This week, we will be joining schools across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day 2023. Safer Internet Day is a global campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology, which calls on young people, parents, carers and teachers to join together in helping to create a better, safer internet.
Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote at Park Street, and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year.
We’d be delighted if you could join us in celebrating this event by continuing the conversation at home. To help you with this, you may be interested in downloading the free Safer Internet Day resource pack for parents and carers which is available here: 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
Tips, advice and guides for parents and carers from the UK Safer Internet Centre and NSPCC
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 we are committed to making sure all of our children understand.
If you have any concerns or questions about keeping your child safe online, please do get in touch with their teacher, Mrs Shankland or Mrs Hawker.
