Safer Internet Day 2020 – Better Together for a Safer Internet

 

Safer Internet Day is an annual opportunity for schools and families to think about how we can make the online world a positive place for children of all ages.

 

Many of our pupils enjoy using the internet at or away from the home, with nearly half of Young People (8-17 years old) saying that what they see or do online contributes to overall identity. 

The internet is an amazing resource that we need to work hard together to make as safe yet free as possible. 

 

This year's Safer Internet Day focuses on asking whether young people are free to be who they wish online? 

 

These statistics could form a point of discussion between you and your family: 

 

  • 54% admit they would feel lost, confused, or as if they’d lost a part of themselves if their online accounts were taken away.
  • 38% said it was easier to be themselves online than offline, seeing it as a safe space to explore and grow.
  • 51% have felt better emotionally or less alone when using the internet 
  • 47% have gained confidence to be themselves offline, and 31% have found support they couldn’t find offline.

Internet security is a very important issue to all at Preston Primary School – we hope every child has a safe and happy experience whilst using the internet.

 

Making sure children are accessing age appropriate content is important as part of our role to educate pupils to become responsible internet users. Below is a chart showing the age restrictions placed on different social media app and services.
