Safer Internet Day

Yesterday we were thinking about how to stay safe when using the internet. We spoke to the children about only using the internet when they are with an adult and the children drew pictures of adults at home and at school that can help them.

We spoke about the importance of not sharing personal information such as photos, name, date of birth etc. We then asked the children to have a go at designing their own Avatar, as well as a username and password – carefully remembering not to use any of our personal information.

Have a look at some of our designs here:

“Always keep safe by asking a grown up if we can use their tablet or laptop. We never share our real names or passwords”.

How you can support your child at home:

Always supervise your child when they are using the internet

Ensure you have appropriate parental controls in place
