Safer Internet Day 2021
Tuesday 9th February
Each year we join in with the 'Safer Internet Day' in February, which is a national campaign to build awareness of children's online safety. Each year there is a different theme which the children learn about in class through watching videos, activities and discussion in school. This year will be a little different as the majority of our children will be learning from home, but there has never been a more appropriate time to keeping our children safe whilst working, learning and playing online.
This year's theme is 'An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world'. In an increasingly digital world, it is easy to believe everything we read on the internet, but this year's activities are encouraging children to explore what they read and question and research the reliability of any articles, news or information they find online. Children must be taught that although the internet is a priceless resource at their fingertips, not everything they read online should be believed!
As a school we will be providing some online resources for you and your child to explore, and below we have provided some links to help you teach your child about and help them navigate through an ever growing source of information.

All our children are taught how to stay safe on line. For 2016-17 will be basing our lessons on some of the materials found in the SWGFL (south west grid for learning) digital literacy programme.
Our 'Switched On Computing' scheme also teaches on line safety related to the specific ICT being taught during that term.
Below are some links to documents and websites that we thought parents might find useful to help keep their children safe on line.
The documents below are all from Derbyshire and have been produced for parents to help with on line safety.
