Safer Internet Day

11th Feb 2020

To we celebrate 'Safer Internet Day'. The pastoral care team prepared and delivered school assemblies yesterday in preparation for the week ahead. In Dromintee primary we want our children to be aware of how to keep themselves safe online and to have the skills to know how to protect their identity online. This year in the UK, Safer Internet Day will encourage young people to explore how they manage their online identity, and how the internet shapes how they think of themselves and others. We want Safer Internet Day 2020 to celebrate difference and help us work towards creating a truly inclusive internet.

This years campaign will focus on what makes up your online identity – such as the facts or characteristics about you, how others perceive and interact with you, as well as how online services identify you. It will also look at how offline stereotypes and discrimination are challenged or reinforced online.

The campaign will look at whether the internet allows young people to experiment and express themselves, or if they feel limited in who they can be online. By opening up conversations around online identity, we aim to inspire young people to support each other in being who they want to be.
