Safer Internet Week 2020

This year, Stanhope Primary School are educating, celebrating and promoting Safer Internet use for a whole week, week beginning Monday 3rd February 2020.

What is E-Safety?
This can also be called ‘internet safety’, ‘online safety’ or ‘web safety’. E-safety is often defined as the safe and responsible use of technology. This includes the use of the internet and other means of communication using electronic media (eg text messages, gaming devices, email etc).
It is important that we equip children with the skills they need to keep themselves safe so they can experience the internet positively and responsibly.

During Safer Internet Week we wanted to reinforce this message to the children.

Safety rules:
Don’t talk to strangers (in real life or on the internet)

Always tell an adult if you don’t like something.

Never give out any details on the internet.

Play games for your age.

Guidance at home

Parents and Guardians play an essential role in supporting children in learning about how to stay safe online. Please find a number of links to provide you with the relevant guidance to help support your child.
