Remember! Stay Safe Online
Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
As part of the annual global Safer Internet Day, we recently invited Mr Murray Letham in to run workshops with both our parents and pupils. Mr Letham is very experienced in the area of internet safety, having been a former police officer and child protection specialist. Please use the following link to our e-safety / on line learning page for further information and top tips.
Murray Letham's main message was that the internet is essential in the modern world for both children and adults, but we need to teach our children about safe and responsible internet use. This starts with speaking to your children about the internet and general safety rules from a young age. A great place to start is the CEOP website, think u know, https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk, which gives you child friendly age-appropriate areas to look at with your child from age 5-14+ to start your discussion about how to be safe on the internet.
To update our own skills and knowledge Mr Letham suggested that we could look at the undernoted websites.
