Safer Internet Day – Tuesday 11th February 2020

Blessed Robert Sutton Pupils have been discussing their use of the Internet during tutor time this morning as part of our Safer Internet Day approach.

This year the UK Safer Internet Centre’s focus is on “whether young people feel free to be themselves online. How young people manage their online identity, and how the internet shapes how they think of themselves and others”.

As well as discussing social media, Pupils have also completed the Safer Internet Day 2020 Quiz.
