Safer Internet Day Information:


Safer Internet Day Tuesday 11th February 2020


This year the theme was: Together for a better internet. The day was a great opportunity to spark conversations about the safe and responsible use of technology, and to inspire the children to create a better internet for the future.


Mr Jibb and the Digital Leaders led the way again with 2 fantastic assemblies - one for the infants and one for the juniors. This way we could really tailor the information for the children. The children then followed this up with lots of activities in class with their teachers!




Safer Internet Day 2019 took place on Tuesday 5th February 2019.

Our Digital Leaders worked tirelessly once again to promote Online Safety.

Mr Jibb, our Computing Leader, started the day off with an assembly supported by our Digital Leaders. The children then spent the day learning about the importance of staying safe online. Key Stage 1 had great fun learning how to stay safe online through Buddy the Dog's Internet Safety Story. They even learnt a song...
