Safer Internet Day 2020

Safer Internet Day 2020 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 11th 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.

December 2019 Bulletin

“At the end of a very full and exciting term, I’d like to wish all our parents and carers a very happy Christmas and a restful new year.

The autumn term has been a busy one; I’d like to pay tribute to all the staff at Brockington who have worked tirelessly this term and often given time and effort beyond what’s expected of them, for the benefit of our students. This edition of the bulletin gives just a small insight into so many activities that students have taken part in this term.”

October & November 2019 Bulletin

“It was an honour to lead the Armistice Day ceremony at Brockington College on Monday 11 November. I was humbled by the respect and reverence that students demonstrated in their approach to such a significant event. This was one of the very few instances where the entire staff and student body is able to come together, in order to mark this occasion. Particular thanks need to go to our head boy and girl, Eddie and Anna, who conducted a reading as part of the ceremony and to Francesca who delivered a solo performance of the Last Post on the French horn. Thanks is also owed to the members of staff who helped to organise the event, namely Mr Barton, Mrs Walker, Mrs Ward and Mr McDonald. If anyone wanted to know about the values taught at Brockington College, or the respect that our students and members of staff hold for others, then our Armistice Day commemoration is a shining example of this work.”
