On 6th February 2017 Culcheth High School introduced “Safer Internet Week” to support Safer Internet Day on Tuesday 7th February.

There was plenty going on during the week, including scrolling information on the Digital Signage with E-Safety campaigns and videos from CEOP and the Police including a presentation from our very own students who are E-Safety Ambassadors (Seth Johnston Year 7, Matthew Middlehurst Year 9, Amy Woods Year 10 and Carrie Divers Year 11) offering their services to other students in case they had any concerns or needed advice regarding internet safety.

On our big screen which normally shows the news we displayed a wealth of hard-hitting real examples of the dangers of Internet Safety so that our students could see some of the pitfalls and dangers with the Internet and Social Media.

Form tutors ran a different assignment each day for the students to partake in, including many E-Safety quizzes and activities, and the staff delivered an assembly in form rooms on Safer Internet Day to gauge the knowledge and understanding of being safe online.

We also sent some information on email to our parents to help guide them through the online world and protecting their children at all times (see the poster overleaf for more useful information).

The week was a great success and staff and students’ understanding and knowledge has been improved as a result and we continue the theme all year with some safer internet activities planned in the future.

Culcheth High School has joined the Safer Internet Organisation and fully support them; for more information please go to the school website and click the Safer Internet Link or http://www.saferinternet.org.uk
