What teachers said about Safer Internet Day 2018:
Several disclosures were made and issues sorted within hours of some lessons being delivered in PSHE. Students felt confident and were given a platform which enabled them to discuss concerns, ask questions and make disclosures.
It brought internet safety out of the computing lessons to a whole school and life issue. It is important that children realise they can make a difference when it comes to online safety
The children really enjoyed coming together to create our giant jigsaw - feedback from parents, children and staff was positive. Safer Internet Day gave us an opportunity to come together as a school community and think about our responsibilities as citizens of the future and what we want the internet to look like.
It gives us the opportunity to involve the whole school in thinking about safer internet use.
