Internet Safety Day 2017

internet-safety-day-2017Tuesday 7th of February is Internet Safety Day. This is an excellent opportunity for not just pupils but staff and parents also. Below are some useful links of resources to help better inform and assist in keeping children safe on the internet.

Did you know?

  • The legal age to have a social media profile such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. is 13.
  • Online “chatting” does not only apply to apps and social media. Many games consoles allow the use to talk to others, for example¬†Fifa, Mine Craft etc.
  • 25% of young people pretend that they are older than they are to get an online account.
  • 5%¬†of teens have admitted to arranging a secret meeting with someone who they have met online.
  • The recommendation of “screen time” is 2 hours per day.

Below is a powerful video curtesy of the CEOPs Thinkuknow education programme, that helps children to understand what constitutes personal information. It is also very thought-provoking for parents also. The suggested teaching age for this video is 8-10 year.
