Jan & Feb 2019 Bulletin

“A belated Happy New Year to everyone and I wish you all the best for the remainder of the year.

Our new year news is the appointment of our new Principal, Sadie Batstone. Sadie will begin her new role after the Easter holiday. At this point, she will lead the college for three days per week whilst I will continue in post for the other two days. This has been agreed with Long Field Academy, Sadie’s current employer, so that Sadie can support the Year 11 pupils at Long Field in the lead up to their GCSE exams. It also provides a period of transition which I am sure will be in everyone’s best interests. Sadie will be full-time after the May half-term holiday.”

Safer Internet Day 2019

Safer Internet Day 2019 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 5th February with the theme –
‘Together for a better internet’. Brockington College will be taking part in this event.

Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people and inspire a national conversation.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

Globally, 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.

The day offers 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. It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet. Get involved to play your part!

What are the key online risks?

Contact: children can be contacted by bullies or people who groom or seek to abuse them

Content: age-inappropriate or unreliable content can be available to children

Conduct: children may be at risk because of their own behaviour, for example, by sharing too much information

Commercialism: young people can be unaware of hidden costs and advertising in apps, games and websites

 

Parents and Carers

Parents and carers play a key role in supporting children to learn about how to stay safe online, and they are one of the first people children turn to if things go wrong. We know it can be difficult to stay on top of the wide range of sites and devices that young people use, so we hope that the following link helps.
