Safer Internet Day 2019
Safer Internet Day took place on Tuesday 5th February and with so many of our children now living in an increasingly online world, we took advantage of the occasion to educate the children further on the many positives and the dangers that exist. Following a whole school assembly, each class carried out a Safer Internet Day activity which gave the children a chance to ask any questions they had regarding their own online activity. As in previous years, there were a lot of questions and I would strongly suggest that you find the time to discuss your child’s online activity with them.

Useful Web Sites for Parents
In school the Hertfordshire Grid for Learning provides for a safe and secure online environment. Many parents and carers do seek advice on how they can help their children to 'Stay Safe' online outside of school. These websites provide comprehensive information about online safety and once parents and carers have a wider knowledge and understanding of the issues they can decide what is right for their family.
Childnet International has been working with BT, Sky, Talk Talk and Virgin Media to produce a new resource for parents and carers and those working with them: Video guides for the free ISP parental controls. The videos are available on the Safer Internet Centre website and the films can be embedded or downloaded.
