Safer Internet Day Resources

2738451853_6e0015ef91_zSafer Internet Day is on February 10th 2015. This is a great time to raise the awareness of digital safety and engage both children and parents in keeping safe online. The Safer Internet Centre UK have created some useful teaching packs for primary and secondary pupils as well as information for parents. These include lesson plans and resources for whole school assemblies. For a whole school, longer term approach to digital safety please see our curriculum planner which covers a progression and links to resources from 3-18.
