NAHT Edge recently reported
that a child’s school bag now contains an average of £270-worth of gadgets. This figure is more than twice the value of last year’s school satchel and reflects children’s rising reliance on gadgets for homework. With more and more children owning an internet-enabled device, it’s vital we ensure they’re kept safe online.
Each year, Safer Internet Day
promotes the responsible and positive use of digital technology, and gives parents, carers and teachers the chance to work together to create a safer internet for children and young people.
The theme for 2016 is ‘Play your part for a better internet’ and various educational resources will be available shortly to help you promote the day in your school. We hope you register your school as a Safer Internet Day supporter.
We’ll be encouraging our members to take part in 2016 and sharing updates from the organiser, UK Safer Internet Centre. So until then, make sure you save the date - Tuesday 9 February 2016
