Safer Internet Day 2023 - Tuesday 7th February
Safer Internet Day 2023 was on Tuesday 7th February and our Digital Leaders led a Worship all about Online Safety. The theme this year was ‘Want to talk about it? Making space for conversations about life online’. All children were asked to remember their
Helping Hand, which is 5 trusted adults children can speak to if they have any concerns about online safety (or anything at all). Our Digital Leaders also led a Worship to the children at St Barnabas Infant School.
Now, more than ever, we need to talk with and listen to young people about what they do, see and experience online. Conversations are key to ensuring children feel confident to speak up about anything that troubles them online and can tell us what they think should be done to make the internet safer and more enjoyable for everyone.
The UK Safer Internet Centre completed research for Safer Internet Day 2023. A summary report of the research can be found using the link below: Safer- Internet-Day-2023-Research- Summary.pdf (d1xsi6mgo67kia.cloudfront.net)
We understand that the online world is ever changing and that it can be hard to understand potential dangers that your child might face online. To help, parental guides can be found every week on our weekly newsletter.
