Internet Safety Day – Tuesday February 9th 2021

Safer Internet Day is on Tuesday 9th of February.

In school many groups in secondary have been working on e safety and Internet guides in preparation for Internet safety day. As we spend more and more time at home we are all inevitably going online more. So we need to make sure we are using the Internet safely and not putting ourselves at risk.

Please have a look at Teams where there should be a range of assignments based on e safety. Also below there are some useful websites to go on and to help you support your child and raise awareness of the dangers of going online.
