At Whitelands, we are extremely safety conscious and no more so than with the internet!
In Whitelands Park School we have been supporting Safer Internet Day 2016. Safer Internet Day 2016 was on Tuesday 9th February 2016, with the theme ‘Play your part for a better internet’, offering the opportunity for us 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.
We have joined hundreds of other organisations across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day and promoting the safe and responsible use of technology.
To celebrate the day, we took part in a whole school assembly about how to be safe on the internet, how to be kind to others and how to report those people who are unkind on the internet. This was then followed up with activities in our classrooms.
We were also really lucky to have Paul Hay, a specialist on internet safety, come in to visit us and have a special parents session after school.
