How will my child be taking part in Safer Internet Day?

At Eling we will be celebrating Safer Internet Day with an afternoon of activities linked to the theme, 'Inspiring Change'. The children had have an assembly which will include a story about Digiduck, who learns to stay safe online and be kind to his friends. The children made posters about staying safe online. 


How can I show my support for Safer Internet Day at home?

One of the best ways to support your child at home is to talk to them. Ask them about what they learnt during the day and encourage them to talk through the completed activities they bring home.
