Safer Internet Day / Week

Tomorrow is officially Safer Internet Day, but here at HRPS we believe that every day should be a safe internet day!

The internet is a fantastic place which has changed the world, and has the power to do incredible good, be it by connecting people from distant parts of the world to allowing us all to have the sum of human knowledge at our fingertips. During safer internet week, and throughout school we aim to ensure the children are aware of all the good that the internet can do and that they appreciate the unlimited potential it affords them. We do, however, also encourage safety and responsibility when using the internet and stress to the children the importance of staying safe online.

To help with this, we have found some useful resources for parents to complement and add to the learning that will be happening in school this week.  We recognise that, as with most things technological, children often know more than the parents and teachers and believe that these resources will help generate conversation and help parents and carers keep children safe online.

Below in the gallery are some posters which have lots of information about various apps, games, websites etc. that children access and enjoy. You can zoom in on the information or download the poster by copying and pasting to make viewing easier. As technology moves so quickly, these posters don’t cover everything, for example TikTok, formerly known as Musically, a social media app where children film themselves miming along to songs to share with their friends. This is a very popular app with children in school. Whilst it is clearly a lot of fun for the children, it is important that they are aware of their own privacy settings. We strongly recommend that children set their TikTok to private, meaning that anybody who wishes to follow their accounts has to be granted permission, thus allowing the children to only share with those who they have accepted. At school we stress to the children the importance of only accepting people that they know in real life to be their friends / followers across all social media. 

A step by step guide to setting your TikTok to private can be found by clicking here.
