Safer Internet Day 2022
Our children will be celebrating Safer Internet Day on Wednesday 19th January. Safer Internet Day promotes safer and more responsible use of online technology by children and young people. To keep you up to date with the latest trends of what children are doing online and current ‘apps’ and games that they may be using and playing, we are providing you with a webinar link that is available from Monday 17th – Sunday 23rd January 2022. The duration is 1 hour. All forms of digital devices can be used to access the session. Slides of the presentation will be available at a later date on our app/website if you are unable to access this link during this time.
We held a Parents’ E-Safety workshop. The workshop focused on how you can keep your child safe on the internet. You can see the presentation here.
There are some great websites that support our work on keeping children safe online, these are:
De Bohun’s Digital Leaders work exceptionally hard to help keep all of our children safe on-line. They also provide vital information for parents. We have been featured on Childnet Digital Leaders Achievement page – https://digital-leaders.childnet.com/digital-leaders-achievements-and-updates-4/
Staying Safe Online
ICT makes learning fun and makes communicating with friends and family easily, but it does have a downside. You need to understand the dangers and stay SMART!
Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information – such as your name, email, phone number, home address, or school name – to people who you don’t trust online.
Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission and even then only when they can be present.
Accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages.
Someone online may be lying about who they are, and information you find on the internet may not be reliable.
Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried. You can report online abuse to the police at: www.thinkuknow.co.uk
or by using the CEOP button on the homepage of our website.
