Tomorrow is Safer Internet Day and along with all the schools in the Redbridge and Lordshill Federation, as well as schools all over the World, Newlands children will be taking part.
The theme for this year's event is: Be the change: unite for a better Internet.
The children in Years 1 and 2 will be looking at our school's Internet Safety Message 'Lock It, Block It, Show It, Tell It' The messages will be; always check with an adult before going on the Internet and Show an adult if you see something that upsets or worries you online.
The children in Years 3 - 6 will be thinking about what happens to images that get posted online. How they can be shared and cannot be removed if this happens. Also about the dangers of revealing personal information in pictures.
It would be great if you could take time this week to talk about these issues with your child. Most classes will be doing the work on Tuesday, but some may have to do it later in the week.
Why not have a look at the resources on the Safer Internet Page of this Website for helpful links. http://www.newlandsprimary.co.uk/internet-safety/
Also, we are planning a session for parents to learn more about keeping their children safe online. The time and date is still to be confirmed.
