Online Safety

Online Safety Week - Monday 5th February - Friday 9th February

The theme for this years Online Safety week is: Create, Connect and Share Respect. A better internet starts with you!

During the week, the children will be exploring how they can make the internet a safer place for all people around the world. On Tuesday (Safer Internet Day), they will be making their own online safety pledge, where they will get the chance to explain how they feel they can make the internet a better place. Keep an eye out on the school twitter feed @heathfld for updates on what your child is doing.

The following week, we will be holding Online Safety Parent Workshops. The theme for this will be: Encouraging Respect Online. Here you will also have the opportunity to ask any online safety questions in a relaxed and informal setting. The workshops will take place on Wednesday 14th February @ 2:45pm in the Junior Hall. All parents and carers are welcome.
