Tuesday 11 February 2020 is Safer Internet Day (SID) and the Seaton Valley Federation will be joining millions around the globe, uniting ‘Together for a better internet’. We will be holding Safer Internet Assemblies across the federation during the week of Safer Internet Day. On this page you will find useful resources for parents/carers.
Safer Internet Day 2020 - useful information for parents/carers
Digital technologies provide you with a world of possibilities at your fingertips. Never before have we enjoyed so many opportunities to learn, exchange, participate and create. Yet, the internet also opens up certain risks to its users – especially the most vulnerable ones, such as children: privacy concerns, cyberbullying, disinformation, exposure to potentially harmful content and predatory behaviours, to quote but a few. How can we ensure access to a safe and stimulating online environment for the greatest number, where they can make the most of a wealth of opportunities, while at the same time mitigating its negative side-effects? Together, we have the power to inspire positive changes online and to raise awareness of the issues that matter to us. SID 2020 aims to promote a responsible, respectful, critical and creative use of digital technologies, especially among children and young people, and to call on all stakeholders to play their part in creating a better internet.
