February 9th 2016 is Safer Internet Day, a day that is very important to our school and pupils. Safer Internet Day is organised by the UK Safer Internet Centre, and this year’s theme is ‘Play your part for a better internet.’
To celebrate the many positives of the internet, and to raise awareness of the issues that children and young people face online today, we will be hosting an online safety information evening for parents and carers of children at Michael Faraday School.
The session will provide practical advice and safety tips to help manage online safety issues, and discussions surrounding suitable behaviour online. It will take place on Tuesday 9th February 2016 at 3:15pm and will last for 30 minutes, with time for questions too. The session will be held in the school studio.
We believe that internet safety education is a crucial element of the curriculum and an essential part of young people’s development. The session is designed to help you become more aware of the safety messages that your children receive in school in order to reinforce them in your home environment.
We are proud to have also established a Digital Leader Team at Michael Faraday School. A selection of Year 5 and Year 6 pupils have been asked to step forward and help mentor other pupils around the school.
The Digital Leader Team will soon be reporting back on their work via a special blog that we will be setting up to help them share their work.
