Safer Internet Day 2020
In Coaching Time this morning, students have been discussing ways to be safe online. In particular, how they would like the internet to be free from bullying, grooming and trolling. They spent time creating some fantastic posters and put thought into online identity and considered whether they and their peers are truly free to be themselves online.
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 wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet.
Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote in Aureus School, and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year.
Why not 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 resource pack for parents and carers which is available here.
