SAFER INTERNET DAY 2020
 

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

On Tuesday 11th February we will be joining schools and youth settings across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day 2020. Safer Internet Day is a global campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology, which calls on young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet.

Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we want to promote at Plough Green Pre-school, and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to highlight online safety messages.

We’d be delighted if you could join us in celebrating the day by continuing the conversation at home.  This should also include older siblings and grandparents.  To help you with this you may be interested in downloading the free Safer Internet Day resource pack for parents and carers which is available here: saferinternet.org.uk/sid-parents.

There are also top tips, a quiz and films which you can use at home with your child.

Some other resources which you may find helpful in supporting your child online are:

Advice for parents and carers from Childnet
Tips, advice and guides for parents and carers from the UK Safer Internet Centre
Guides on popular apps and games from NetAware
Reviews and information about games, apps, TV shows and websites from Common Sense Media
Help on using parental controls and privacy settings from Internet Matters
Information and reporting of online grooming or abuse from CEOP

Online safety is an important issue which as a setting, we’re committed to raise awareness with parents.

If you have any concerns or questions about keeping your child safe online, please do get in touch with Angela Jay, our Designated Safeguarding Lead.

Kind regards,

Angela Jay

Manager
