Safer Internet Day - 6 February 2018

The world of technology is rapidly changing and as parents, we are often playing ‘catchup’ with new apps and games that our children are using.  Assemblies will be taking place during the week of Safer Internet Day helping to educate students on e-safety, the theme being “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”.  You may wish to support this work with these free downloadable resources for parents, which includes quick conversation starters, a factsheet and more.
