Pupils took part in Safer Internet Day which was celebrated globally with the slogan ‘Let’s create a better internet together’.
The pupils made pledges focused on promoting the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology which they committed to paper and were given silicone wristbands to celebrate their involvement with the event.
Mrs Claire Hunt, Assistant Head Teacher at Saint Paul’s, said: “The day offered us the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. We called upon staff, parents and pupils, to join together to help create a better internet. The wristbands and the pledges helped mark the day and our commitment.”
It was wonderful to see our pupils joining in so enthusiastically with this national initiative to promote the safe and responsible use of technology. It is vital that we teach young people about the importance of personal safety and acting responsibly online,” explained Mrs Fiona Minshall, Head Teacher at Saint Paul’s.
