A primary school supported a national initiative which promotes the safe and responsible use of technology.
Pupils and teachers at St Mary and St John Primary School in North Luffenham joined hundreds of other organisations across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day on Tuesday last week.
The day began with a safer internet assembly which explored this year’s theme - “Let’s create a better internet together”. During the assembly, the children identified what they enjoyed about the internet, how to stay safe and how to behave online, and what their perfect online world would look like. Throughout the day, pupils from reception to Year 6 explored a range of activities to learn about internet safety.
Headteacher Fiona Wilce said: “In this digital age when our children use the internet as a routine part of their daily lives and are starting to explore social media, it is critical that we educate them to understand the potential dangers that are associated with these and how to behave responsibly themselves.”
