Safer Internet Day 2022

On Tuesday 8th February we celebrated Safer Internet Day.


Safer Internet Day is celebrated each year around the world to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children, and to inspire conversations about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically, and creatively. Our Digital leaders prepared and recorded a virtual assembly for us, all about this year’s theme: All Fun and Games. It gave us the opportunity to discuss different ways to stay safe, respectful and responsible online. Each year group then looked at a variety of scenarios and came up with tips to stay safe on-line.

Being Kind

  • The internet is just like the real world - kind people use the internet, but some nasty people do too.
  • It's important that you are nice and kind when you use the computer to talk to people. Even if you can't see someone, things you write might still upset them. 
  • If anyone is nasty to you or makes you unhappy - you MUST tell a grown up so that they can help you and make the person stop.
