Your News: Supporting Safer Internet Day
St Mary and St John Primary School in North Luffenham supported Safer Internet Day 2015.
The school joined hundreds of other organisations across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day on Tuesday last week and promoting the safe and responsible use of technology.
To celebrate the day, the pupils, staff and governors at St Mary and St John began with an e-safety assembly based on the theme of ‘Let’s create a better internet together’ led by computing subject leader Louise Cook.
Throughout the day each class explored activities which focus on the safer internet day theme.
Pupils at St Mary and St John learn about e-safety each term as part of the new ‘Computing’ curriculum and ‘Safer Internet Day’ enables them to apply and further their learning.
Safer Internet Day 2015 explored the theme ‘Let’s create a better internet together’, offering the opportunity to focus on both the creative and positive things that children and young people are doing online, as well as the role that we all play in helping to create a better internet.
Fiona Wilce, headteacher of St Mary and St John CEVA Primary School, said: “With digital communication and social media used in virtually every household now, it is vitally important to continually teach the children the importance of staying safe and recognising and dealing with potential problems.
“This annual, themed internet safety day holds tremendous value in refocusing and highlighting the importance of e-safety, not only for our children but parents and governors too.”
