Safer Internet Day

What a good week we had last week:

On Friday we enjoyed the activities Janine shared with us all, as we raised money for the NSPCC’s Number Day. Thank you to everyone who made a donation. Keeping children safe is why the NSPCC is here, the organisation offers support to children when they need a ‘helping hand’, they help parents when things are getting tough at home, and help everyone understand when laws need to change, or when the government needs to do more. I’m very proud of the Mathematicians we have in our school who found solutions to the many number problems posed, and can also say that I’ve never seen so many digits and numbers everywhere!

This week we are looking forward to:

  • Safer Internet Day on Tuesday 08.02.22. This is a global event to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. The theme this year is: ‘All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online’. The event is coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre; Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.

  • Children’s Mental Health Week is also taking place between 7th-13th February 2022. This year’s theme is Growing Together. Growing Together is about growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow. Challenges and setbacks can help us to grow and adapt and trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone into a new realm of possibility and potential. However, emotional growth is often a gradual process that happens over time, and sometimes we might feel a bit ‘stuck’.

As you will all be aware, we continue to have a number of positive COVID cases reported, please be reassured that we are being very careful and sensible in school, please continue to do your best too.
