Higham Lane School Is Supporting Safer Internet Day 2019
Higham Lane School is joining the global Safer Internet Day campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology.
Co-ordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, Safer Internet Day will take place on Tuesday, February 5th, with the theme ‘Together for a Better Internet’.
Celebrated in over 130 countries, Safer Internet Day will see Higham Lane join hundreds of organisations right across the UK and globally to play their part in helping to create a better internet.
To celebrate the day, the School is raising the profile of online safety by creating origami chatterboxes to educate the students around some of the latest topics surrounding online safety.
Higham Lane School will be part of a nationwide day of action involving the #SaferInternetDay2019 social media campaign and youth events where young people will have the opportunity to have their say about the issue of consent online.
Will Gardner, Director of the UK Safer Internet Centre and CEO of Childnet, said: “Safer Internet Day is an opportunity for everyone across the UK and globally to come together for a better internet. Whether you are a young person, parent, carer, school or organisation, we can all take positive actions to help make the internet a great and safe place. Hundreds of schools and organisations have pledged their support for Safer Internet Day and it is this collaboration that helps ensure Safer Internet Day has such a positive impact, reaching 45% of UK children in 2018 and growing year on year.”
Mr Timmins, Online Safety Co-ordinator of Higham Lane School, commented: “The Internet is written in pen, not pencil. Think before you post!”.
