This week Barr Beacon School will be joining the global Safer Internet campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology. Safer Internet Day 2020 is taking place on Tuesday, 11 February 2020. The theme this year is “Together for a better internet”. To celebrate, pupils at Barr Beacon will be getting involved all week with form time activities looking at different themes relating to e-Safety, from cyberbullying to self-image online. Then, on Thursday, KS3 will be looking at eSafety in detail during PSHE where we will be exploring why apps are so addictive and how to spot misinformation and fakes online.
If you want to get involved or brush up on your eSafety knowledge head over to our Parent Platform where we upload guides on everything from what individual apps do to helping you have conversations with your children about e-Safety. http://www.barrbeaconschool.co.uk/parental-platform-guides/
