Safer Internet Day is an event organised by the UK Safer Internet Centre to promote the importance of staying safe and being responsible online. The main purpose of Safer Internet Day is to raise awareness in making the internet a safer and better place particularly for children and young people. The theme for this year is ‘All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online.’
On Tuesday 8th February Miss Anna led an assembly to the whole school discussing the importance of staying safe whilst enjoying playing games online. The Digital Leaders Zack (Yr 5), Edward and Charlie (Yr 6) supported Miss Anna in highlighting the potential dangers of the World Wide Web (WWW).
Across Wandsworth Prep the children created posters to highlight the key objectives of being SMART- Safe, Meeting, Accepting, Reliability and Telling. The children’s posters have since been displayed around the school. Wandsworth Prep were also awarded a certificate to certify our recognition of raising the awareness within our school.
