Online Safety Week 2017
During this week, we held our annual ‘Online Safety Week’ in order to raise our children’s awareness of keeping themselves safe online. The week coincided with Safer Internet Day 2018, which was on Tuesday 6th February. Safer Internet Day 2018 was celebrated globally and, this year, it had the slogan, “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”.
The term ‘Online Safety’ may not be familiar to you, or it may conjure up fears of some of the awful things we hear about all too often. The safety, health and wellbeing of all students is of primary importance to us and we do a huge amount of work in school to help, support and guide students.
We spent the week reinforcing our Online Safety rules and encouraging the students to discuss Online Safety issues and how to deal with them. One of the issues we looked at was ‘Communicating and Collaborating Online’. We discussed the impact our words and actions could have on others in the digital world.
