Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised by Insafe in February of each year to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially amongst children and young people across the world.
Safer Internet Day 2013 was the tenth edition of the event, and officially took place on Tuesday 5 February 2013 although schools and organisations across the country, and indeed the world, have focused on the event on different days throughout the month of February. The overall theme for the event this year was 'Online rights and responsibilities', when users were encouraged to 'Connect with respect'. In the younger Key Stages emphasis again is on keeping yourself safe online and being aware of what happens when you post something online and who is able to view it.
This year, as with previous years, we raised awareness in school via two separate Key Stage assemblies focused on e-safety at a level appropriate for the pupils involved. If you would like to explore the subject of e-safety further with your child, please visit some of the links on our main E-Safety page.
