Parent & carer homework…!
Following class discussions on Safer Internet Day, teachers reinforced the key messages:
1: If you see anything online that you are unhappy with or makes you feel uncomfortable, switch it off and tell an adult.
2: When reading, writing or looking at things online, ask yourself the question: Would my teacher or parent/carer be happy with me doing this? If the answer is no, don’t do it!
Another thing that came out of discussion was that a significant number of children thought their parents didn’t really know what they were doing online. This may not be the case but we ask that all parents and carers set aside some time over half term to talk with their children about the games they play and programmes they watch online.
