This term we joined with schools and youth organisations across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day 2023. Safer Internet Day is a global campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology, which calls on children and young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers and more, to help to create a better internet.
Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote at St. Bede and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year. Our Year 6 digital ambassadors confidently led our worship sessions on Wednesday this week and delivered key messages that it is important to talk about how we keep ourselves safe online.
We would be delighted if you could join us in celebrating the week by continuing the conversation at home. To help you with this, the UK Safer Internet Centre have created some free activities and information for parents and carers which are available at Parents and carers - UK Safer Internet Centre. Whether you have 5 minutes to start a conversation or hours to spare, there are top tips, quizzes and films.
