Safer Internet Day
On Tuesday 9th February, St Edward's Academy will be joining schools and youth organisations across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day 2021. Safer Internet Day is a global campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology, which calls on young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers and more to join together in helping to create a better internet.
Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote at St Edward’s Academy and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year.
Online safety is an important issue which as a 10:10 school we are committed to teaching our pupils about.
Safer Internet Day resources for pupils
Fully interactive versions of the above resources will be made available on Microsoft Teams for pupils to access on Tuesday 9th February.
Safer Internet Day resources for parents and carers
We would be delighted if parents and carers could join their child in accessing the resources and celebrating the day by continuing the conversations at home.
