SAFER INTERNET DAY
Every year, thousands of schools, youth groups, companies, charities, police services and other organisations across the globe work together to help to inspire a better, safer Internet for all. On the first Tuesday of February each year, they all promote Safer Internet Day (SID). Each year there is a different theme and focus for the variety of activities and projects that are undertaken.
This school year, Safer Internet Day was on 8th February 2022 and the theme was:
ALL FUN AND GAMES? EXPLORING RESPECT AND RELATIONSHIPS ONLINE.
From gaming and chat, to streaming and video, young people are shaping the interactive entertainment spaces they are a part of. Safer Internet Day 2022 celebrates young people’s role in creating a safer internet, whether that is whilst gaming and creating content, or interacting with their friends and peers.
During the week when SID fell, all classes in the school used their timetabled Computing slot to work on an activity linked to the theme. We also had a special SID Assembly on the 8th February to introduce this year's theme to the children. These sessions are additional to the Online Safety teaching that is completed at the beginning of every term as part of our Computing Curriculum.
