An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world
This year in the UK, Safer Internet Day explores reliability online. The internet has an amazing range of information and opportunities online, but how do we separate fact from fiction?
Safer Internet Day will be celebrated globally with the slogan: Together for a better internet.
The School will be providing lessons on Safer Internet for all key stage 3 pupils next week and every class on Tuesday will spend 5 minutes investigating and discussing how information is or is not reliable within the subjects they take on that day.
"All children are entitled to an education free from humiliation, oppression and abuse."
Don’t ignore bullying – it won’t go away on its own and it may get worse.
Tell someone you trust – such as a teacher, parent or friend.
Remember – it’s not your fault. No one deserves to be bullied
