Up coming news and events
As I am sure you are aware Safer Internet Day takes place on Tuesday, 6th February and is a chance to redouble our focus on the online safety and wellbeing of children and young people. This year’s theme is Inspiring Change, which will see us taking part in Safer Internet Day Live Lessons provided by the BBC where students will become digital detectives exploring the exciting world of Artificial Intelligence and learning how to stay safe online.
Each year group will focus on an age specific area of online and cyber safety for which they will be generating posters to be displayed around school and uploaded onto the school website.
During the week students will have a chance to access a web based program, Interland, at school. If they wish to continue with this they can access the program from our school webpage Plugged in learning at Ryvers | Ryvers School where you can also find links to various other online programs.
On a final note we would like to direct your attention to our school webpage E-Safety | Ryvers School . Here you will find more information on helping to keep children and young people safe in the online world as well as links to various sites with advice, guidance and help for protecting online safety.
There is always a lot of social media interest and indeed alarm about the internet and how safe both adults and children are when accessing it. As parents, carers and educators we do have a duty of care to make sure we are as informed about both the wonderful opportunities the internet brings but also its potential dangers. At Ryvers we are very keen to be preparing our youngsters to learn, grow and give in a safe and exciting environment both in and out of school. The activities above are great opportunities to do so.
