Staying safe online

Safer Internet Day 2017

Hallaton CE Primary School is supporting Safer Internet Day 2017


Hallaton CE Primary School is joining the global Safer Internet Day campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, Safer Internet Day will take place on Tuesday 7th February 2016 with the theme ‘Be the change: Unite for a better internet’.

Celebrated in over 100 countries, Safer Internet Day will see Hallaton join hundreds of organisations right across the UK and globally to ‘be the change’ and help create a better internet.

To celebrate the day, Hallaton is looking at the safe use of photographs to post on line and the importance of keeping your personal details private, with everyone  getting involved.

Hallaton CE Primary School will be part of a nationwide day of action involving the #SID2017 social media campaign and youth events where young people will have the opportunity to have their say about the digital issues that affect them.

Will Gardner, Director of the UK Safer Internet Centre and CEO of Childnet, said:

“Safer Internet Day is an opportunity for everyone across the UK and globally to unite for a better internet. Whether you are a young person, parent, carer, school or organisation, we can all ‘be the change’ and take positive actions to make the internet a better place. Hundreds of schools and organisations have pledged their support for Safer Internet Day and it is this collaboration that helps ensure Safer Internet Day has such a positive impact, reaching 40% of UK children in 2016 and growing year on year.”

Mrs Riley, Headteacher of Hallaton CE Primary School said, “We feel it is vitally important to educate our children about ways to stay safe when online, and we feel this can never be started too early.”
