Thank you for joining us for Safer Internet Day 2018.
Recently our school Computing Curriculum Team set up a new corridor display. The children were invited to contribute suggestions and ideas about BugClub, Mathletics and e-safety. Many of the children were keen to share how their parents help keep them safe at home. If you haven't discussed this at home in a while, do take the opportunity.
We all want a safer internet for children to enjoy and learn. Last year Safer Internet Day 2017 reached an estimated 3 million school children. A follow up survey found the majority of children spoke to their families about staying safe online, while 79% felt more confident about what to do about any worries online. As a result, 1 in 4 young people said they had spoken up about something that had been worrying them.
#SID2018 is set to be the biggest campaign yet and will hopefully make a real difference to the digital lives of children in the UK. We are excited to be supporting this through lessons, assemblies and other special activities across our school.
Today's teacher podcast, about screen time, is brought to you by Mr Powell and a special guest!
