Safer Internet Day

💻 Safer Internet Day 💻

 

Today we will be joining schools and youth organisations across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day 2022.

 

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 in school, and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year. Some of the activities we’ll be participating in today include:

Year 7: Up your Game (Gaming/online behaviour)

Year 8: Safer internet Day Quiz

Year 9: Cool to be unkind (Internet conduct)

Year 10: Moral Compass

Y11: Social Media vs gaming

 

We would be delighted if you could join us in celebrating the day by continuing the conversation at home. To help you with this, you may be interested in downloading the free Safer Internet Day Resources for Parents and Carers which is available at: saferinternet.org.uk/sid-parents.

There are top tips, quizzes, and films which you can use at home with your child.

Some other resources which you may find helpful in supporting your child online are:

● Tips, advice and guides for parents and carers from the UK Safer Internet Centre

(saferinternet.org.uk/parents)

● Advice for parents and carers from Childnet (childnet.com/parents-and-carers)

● Reviews and information about games, apps, TV shows and websites from Common Sense Media (commonsense.org)

● Help on using parental controls and privacy settings from Internet Matters (internetmatters.org./controls)

● Information and reporting of online grooming or sexual abuse from CEOP (ceop.police.uk)

 

Along with this there are some age specific support materials and resources for Parents and Carers to access to help your child/children in developing healthy on-line behaviour and keep them safe at home.

Online safety is an important issue which as a school we’re committed to teaching our students about.

 

If you have any concerns or questions about keeping your child safe online, please do get in touch with your child’s review tutor or myself.

Our Values

Ambition Rooted firmly in Catholic teachings, we aim to nurture and guide our students to fulfil their God-given potential so they may achieve success.

Leadership We strive to be a community of servant leaders, where individuals gain a clear sense of self and purpose, knowing their values and using these to guide how they enrich the community in which they belong.

Integrity We teach our students to value honesty and have strong moral principles, using their discernment to govern their actions and take responsibility for their choices.

Vigour Inspired by the life of St Gregory, we empower our students to work with vigour, so they approach all activities and opportunities with effort, energy and enthusiasm.

Empathy We aim for our students to understand and value the feelings of others and for them to know they are loved and celebrated irrespective of their differences.
