Safer Internet Day - 5th February 2019
On Tuesday 5th February we celebrated 'Safer Internet Day' at Tanworth-in-Arden Primary School. We had some very interesting activities planned during the day (photos to follow) and our 'Online Safety Committee' did a wonderful job at interviewing children in regards to current knowledge.
One area that we will be focussing on in the coming months is 'permission'. Lots of the children in school know what the word permission means but don't always consider the repercussions of agreeing to 'terms and conditions'.
Parents need to be mindful that their children may unwittingly give permission for data to be shared by simply clicking a check-box. We will be encouraging children to ask an adult whether they should agree to 'terms and conditions' when downloading games or visiting websites.
Please continue to be vigilant of which websites your children visit and take appropriate steps to ensure your children do not play on unsuitable, age-restricted games.
In assembly on 6th February the 'Online Safety Team' revealed a competition about keeping safe online. Here are the riddles you need to answer. Please write your answers on the competition sheets you have been given. The closing date for the competition is Monday 12th February 2018.
1.Don’t write this down anywhere (keep only in your brain), the effect could be disastrous. What am I?
2.Don’t talk to people you do not know. Their proper face they will not show. They interfere with your games and never reveal their real names. It rhymes with slacker. What am I?
3.You can’t use this without logging on. You can carbon copy more than once. You can talk to people from far away. What am I?
