SAFER INTERNET DAY
7th February 2017 #SID2017
In the Academy we have marked 'Safer Internet Day 2017' by sharing different ways of keeping safe online.  We had our local PCSOs visit and share with us all some key messages to staying safe in our community and the wider online community.
This website might be useful to develop your knowledge about keeping safe online: https://www.saferinternet.org.uk 
The NSPCC also have lots of resources and information to support your understanding of how to keep our children safe both online and in the physical world.  https://www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/keeping-children-safe

Leicestershire Police have released on their website a short film, 'Kayleigh's Love Story' that demonstrates how vulnerable our young people and children are to child sexual exploitation.  It is a harrowing 5 minute watch,  but one that shares a message very powerfully and will certainly provoke conversations at home. (It would not be recommended to be shown to children below Year 6.) 


Kayleigh’s Love Story is as a warning to young people, both girls and boys, about the dangers of speaking to people they don’t know online. The film highlights just how quick and easy it can be for children to be groomed online without them or those around them knowing it is happening. Its purpose is to protect children now and in the future and to stop another family losing a child in this way.
