Safer Internet Day 2019

safer internet day 2019Safer Internet Day will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 5th February 2019 with the theme: Together for a better internet.  All of our pupils will be taking part in related activities on the day and we plan to run parent/ carer sessions too.

In the meantime it’s worth considering the question ‘How much screen time is OK for my child?’  Research advises that there is no set amount of time that needs to be adhered to, but that devices should not replace sleep, exercise or family time. It is also advised that devices should be avoided in the hour before bed to promote healthy sleep.
