OSB marks Safer Internet Day

Published on 06/02/18

Orchard School Bristol is proud to have supported Safer Internet Day this year. 

We joined the global Safer Internet Day campaign on Tuesday 6th February to promote the safe and responsible use of technology within our school community.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the theme of the day was ‘Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you’.

Celebrated in over 100 countries, Safer Internet Day saw our school join hundreds of organisations right across the UK and globally play our part in helping to create a better internet.

To celebrate the day we launched our Digital Safety Checklist, which had been put together with the help of our Digital Safety working group, we held discussions in tutor time, with students coming up with pledges for our manifesto, and we also revealed news of a Digital Safety event for parents this summer. 

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 unite for a better internet.

"Whether you are a young person, parent, carer, school or organisation, we can all take positive actions to make the internet a better 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 42% of UK children in 2017 and growing year on year.”

Safer Internet UK offers lots of useful resources to support parents and carers with having conversations with children and young people.
