Internet Safety Day 2016

Safer Internet Day 2016 takes place on Tuesday 9th February inviting everyone to 'Play your part for a better internet'.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the day is designed to encourage organisations and individuals to get involved in helping to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet.

Get involved to play your part!

Locally there is an online forum hosted by Thames Valley Police -- to register your interest, see here.

Haddenham Community Infant School

Our local community infant school is recognising the importance of online safety by including some key activities in lessons this week:

  • Lessons in Yr1 and Yr2 based on Internet safety as well as running a 'be safe online' poster competition.
  • Using Espresso resources in Year 2 and 'Hector's World' in Year 1 which emphasise Internet safety in children's terms and key points to remember.
  • Yr2 children are also going to complete an online safety quiz on the Espresso website after they have watched a video about Internet safety.
