Safer Internet Day: 7th February 2017
Dear Parents and Carers,
We are taking part in E-Safety Week this term between Monday 6th – Friday 10th February. E-Safety Week helps our school shine a light on the range of strategies we can use to keep ourselves safe online. Our Digital Leaders have put together, with the help from the CLC, two fantastic E-Safety Awareness videos which you can see below.
The theme this year is ‘Be the change: unite for a better internet’. It is organised by the UK Safer Internet Centre and To explore the power and influence of images in young people’s digital lives the UK Safer Internet Centre has delivered a range of activities including:
· Schools across the UK are using the Education Packs and SID TV films to empower young people to use images and videos safely and positively.
· Young people across the UK have been taking part in a youth photo campaign to create engaging photos to explore the power and influence of images in their lives, with images being exhibited at youth events across the UK today and in an online gallery.
· People across the UK have been joining the #giveasmile social media campaign to use the power of emojis and selfies to help make the internet a more positive place.
At St Jude’s, we will be focusing on how to use images and videos safely and positively. Our strategy is to ‘Look outside the frame..’ where we don’t make assumptions on what we think we see. Instead, we will focus on engaging in dialogue before jumping to conclusions.
