Dear Parents and Carers,
Tuesday 9th February is UK SAFER INTERNET DAY. This year’s theme is ‘reliability online’.
Safer Internet Day 2021 celebrates the amazing range of information and opportunities online, and its potential to inform, connect and inspire us, whilst also looking at how young people can separate fact from fiction.
The campaign focuses on how we can know what to trust online, supporting young people to question, challenge and change the online world. It will explore how influence, persuasion and manipulation can impact young people’s decisions, opinions and what they share online. We want to give young people the skills to support one another, and the strategies to spot and speak out against harmful and misleading content online.
At St Johns, all children (whether in school or learning remotely) will be completing activities based around this year's ‘reliability online’ theme. It would be wonderful if this could be followed up at home. The following are some links you may find useful to help with this:
