Safer Internet Day 2018

St Christopher's School were once again supporting the fantastic Safer Internet Day. Celebrated globally and coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity to talk to our school community about the safe, responsible and positive use of technology, and to pledge how we will help to create a kinder online community. Our pledge (which can be found on the UK Safer Internet Centre Website here) was:

"We will be empowering pupils and our whole school community to use technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively through bespoke assemblies and classes with fantastic resources"

During the day Mr Payne (our school DSL) delivered a fantastic assembly to pupils. He spoke about how we can use the internet in a positive way and what a fantastic resource it can be when used safely and responsibly - especially the ability to connect with friends. Mr Payne highlighted the theme "create, connect and share respect: a better internet starts with you".  Beyond the confines of the school hall, individual classes delivered bespoke sessions to cover the Safer Internet Day message and we have an interactive display created by the children to make sure the Safer Internet Day message carries on well into 2018!

Later in the week ,on Thursday 8th February, Year 6 performed a Safer Internet Day inspired play in front of the school during the weekly assembly. This allowed pupils to disseminate their experiences online to younger peers.
