We use the internet in almost every aspect of our lives, so it’s important for everyone to know about online safety.

Safer Internet Day is a global initiative that brings together families, schools and organisations from more than 160 countries to help create safer online spaces. At Groves, we educate our students to be safe online and to know where to go for help. This Safer Internet Day, Tuesday, 6 February, students were encouraged to take three simple actions when approaching online safety: Connect.

  • Connect – Connect safely by keeping apps and devices secure and reviewing your privacy settings regularly.
  • Reflect – Reflect on how your actions online may affect others or your safety.
  • Protect – Protect yourself and others by knowing how to stay safe and where to go for help.
    Students and families are encouraged to report any online safety concerns to the Home Class Teacher or the Student Safety Team.

We trust that you will find the attached resources helpful in talking with your family and friends about how to stay safe online and where to go for help.
