Safer Internet Day
On Tuesday 7th February we took part in Safer Internet Day.
We would like to share this link with families which contains some advice on how parents can help children to be safe online.
The advice helps parents with advice on tips how to start a conversation with their child about online safety, difficult and sensitive topic about the implications of not being safe online, how to support a child struggling online, where and how to report online concerns and how to ensure your child fully understands online safety and is acting on it.
The online video from the UK Safer Internet Centre is guidance for parents on how to start discussions with children of all ages and how to offer trust and support to our children who are online.
Please see the below trusted links of organisations websites which offer further guidance and support not only for children but for parents and individuals who work with young people:
If you believe a child is struggling with online safety please let a member of staff know. Furthermore if you believe your child is a victim of online safety please report this urgently.
A few examples of where to report queries or concerns of online safety regarding children and young people are -
NSPCC Helpline 0808 800 5000 or email@example.com
Childline 0800 11 11
However if you think a child is in immediate danger please call the police on 999.
Children's Mental Health Week 6-12th February 2023
Children's Mental Heath week ran from Monday 6th to Friday 12th February 2023.
To promote this we held a non uniform "WEAR WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY" day for the children on the Friday.
This means that children came to school dressed in football kits, princess dresses, superhero outfits, pj's, jeans and jumpers, yellow, sparkles....whatever makes you happy!! (no donations needed).
The campaign highlights how access to mental health support is too often determined by where we live or who we are. But it shouldn’t be like this and we can change things. The idea behind this World Mental Health Day is to do one thing – ‘If we all do one thing, we can change everything’.
World Mental Health Day provides the opportunity to talk about mental health in general, how we need to look after it and how important it is to talk about things and get help if you’re struggling. Your mental health or well-being is just as important as your physical health. It is healthy to know and say how you’re feeling.
