An important message from:
Computing and Online Safety Lead
As part of our online safety lessons all children have completed activities to help keep them safe online. Within their classes, they have also read through and agreed to the School Acceptable Use Policy.
If you want to find out more, you can read St Ursula’s Catholic Primary School full Online Safety Policy where you will find more details on our approach to online safety and links to other relevant policies (e.g. Safeguarding Policy, Behaviour Policy, etc).
If you would like any more information in relation to online safety, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Safer Internet Day
Safer Internet Day 2023 will take place on the 7th of February 2023, with celebrations and learning based around the theme ‘Want to talk about it? Making space for conversations about life online’.
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the celebration sees thousands of organisations get involved to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
In the UK, we are celebrating by putting children and young people’s voices at the heart of the day and encouraging them to shape the online safety support that they receive.
That is why we are asking parents, carers, teachers, government, policymakers, and the wider online safety industry to take time to listen to children and young people and make positive change together.
This year we are hoping to answer the following questions:
- What issues really matter to children and young people?
- What changes do they want to see?
- How can we all work together to advocate for them moving forward?
With your help, Safer Internet Day 2023 can be a springboard for conversations that shape how we talk about and respond to online issues, not just for one day, but throughout the whole year.
