Tuesday was Internet Safety Day. This year the theme is giving permission and consent. I am really pleased to see Internet Safety Day is being covered by the press and that the news articles are continuing to raise the pupils and adults especially us parents’ understanding as to how we can continue to be safe online. “This year in the UK, Safer Internet Day will focus on how consent works in an online context and will ask young people to explore how they ask, give, and receive consent online. This could be in their friendships or relationships, how they take and share images and videos or how they manage their privacy and data.” taken from https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/safer-internet-day/2019.
The whole day on Tuesday we set aside for Internet Safety Day. KS2 had 4 lessons all exploring consent and permission on line. The children went to each class where each teacher led a different aspect of consent and permission. KS1 had similar lessons linked to their age groups. Each Key Stage started with an assembly.
