Have a conversation
It is really important to chat with your children on an ongoing basis about staying safe online. Not sure where to begin? These conversation starter suggestions can help.
Ask your children to tell you about the sites they like to visit and what they enjoy doing online.
What games do you and your friends like to play online? Can you show me the websites you visit the most? Shall we play your favourite game online together?
Ask them about how they stay safe online.
What tips do they have for you, and where did they learn them? What is OK and not OK to share?
Ask them if they know where to go for help.
Where can they go to find the safety advice, privacy settings and how to report or block on the services they use?
Think about how you each use the internet.
What more could you do to use the internet together? Are there activities that you could enjoy as a family?
Online safety activities to try at home with your family
Safer Internet Day will be on the 9th February 2021
Safer Internet Day 2021 will be celebrated in the UK with the theme:
An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world
This year in the UK, Safer Internet Day explores reliability online. The internet has an amazing range of information and opportunities online, but how do we separate fact from fiction?
Safer Internet Day will be celebrated globally with the slogan: Together for a better internet.
We will be using the resources below in school as well as some additional ones. These are for your reference and to use with your child at home to discuss the topic further!

SAFER INTERNET DAY 2020
This year Safer Internet Day is designed to empower young people to take control of their digital lives. For 2020 we are putting the focus on online identity and asking young people to consider whether they and their peers are truly free to be themselves online.
#freetobe on social media
This Safer Internet Day we are encouraging everyone to think about identity online, looking at how the internet shapes how they think of themselves and others. This year the Safer Internet Day campaign will be using the hashtag #freetobe – exploring all of the things that young people should be free to be, when they are online.
Please take some time, following the link below, to talk with your child about these issues.
Safer Internet Day 6.2.19
This year, Safer Internet Day focused on how consent works in an online context and asks young people to explore how they ask, give, and receive consent online. This could be in their friendships or relationships, how they take and share images and videos or how they manage their privacy and data.
This week at school we have explored how the internet works, who owns the information that is shared on it, and how they can actively take ownership of digital spaces.
We want the children in our care to take control of their online lives and to feel that they can harness and use the positive power of the internet for good.
The homework this week was based on the theme of consent.
Below you can view the assembly presentation, activities and web links that the children looked at in their classes.
