SAFER INTERNET DAY 2020 - 11th February 2020

Safer Internet Day 2020 will be celebrated globally with the theme 'Together for a better internet'. This year in the UK, the focus will be on how young people explore and express their identify online.

Free to be me: Exploring identity online

 

Safer Internet Day is designed to empower young people to take control of their digital lives. For 2020 we are putting the focus on online identity and asking young people to consider whether they and their peers are truly free to be themselves online. Within school, children will access a range of resources, including films, assemblies and various in class activities to help them navigate the issue of online identity in a digital age in a safe, responsible and respectful way.

COMING SOON - EXCITING ASSEMBLY ON 16.03.2020 WITH 'BE INTERNET LEGENDS'

 

What is a Google Be Internet Legends assembly?

The Google Be Internet Legends assembly teaches Key Stage 2 pupils the skills they need to be safe and confident explorers of the online world. It is completely free and is part of a larger programme, featuring a free PSHE Association-accredited curriculum pack, family resources and free online game. The assemblies are delivered by Parent Zone, with training teams delivering assemblies into primary schools all across the UK. 

 

 

What areas of learning does the Google Be Internet Legends assembly cover?

The assembly focuses on the five core pillars of the Be Internet Legends educational programme, incorporating characters from an imaginary world called Interland. The pillars are:

  • Be Internet Sharp: Centred around the importance of thinking before sharing, evaluating whether a piece of information is private or not, and bearing in mind who will be able to see what is shared.
  • Be Internet Alert: Teaching pupils how to spot phishing scams and how to report them, be able to tell what is real and what is fake, and to think critically about information found online.
  • Be Internet Secure: Focused on keeping personal information safe by creating unique passwords, combining characters, numbers and symbols.
  • Be Internet Kind: Encourages pupils to spread positivity online, speak up against and report bullying, and teaches them how to identify inappropriate behaviour.
  • Be Internet Brave: About standing up when witnessing something inappropriate online, and to speak to a trusted adult about any concerns.
