Safer Internet Day 2015 (SID) is on Tuesday 9 February 2016, with the strapline of “Let’s create a better internet together”.
Promoting Safer Internet Day is part of our Community Ambassador’s role and the Safer Internet Day encourages safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially among children and young people.
Various resources have been made available to us help teach eSafety in your school
Community Ambassadors at Baxter College ran the White Ribbon Campaign in their school. The main school entrance had an impressive display stand raising awareness of domestic violence and students were encouraged to sign up to the pledge “Say NO to domestic abuse and sexual violence and say YES to healthy and respectful relationships”.
The whole of Stourport High School embraced the Anti-Bullying campaign “Make some noise”.
All students, staff, members of the local community pledged to stamp out bullying with “foot selfies”. Each year group also took part in a conga around the school spreading anti-bullying messages as they went. Each tutor group designed an anti-bullying slogan and the winning slogan will make up part of our community pledge which is to stamp out bullying.
All our Community Ambassadors have been busy planning activities in their high schools, to advise peers about domestic abuse and where to go for help if they feel they need it.
The Ambassadors plan to hold assemblies, ask fellow students to sign a pledge against domestic abuse which we will load onto the White Ribbon Campaign website, set up information stands and wear white ribbons all to raise awareness.
Meet the Community Ambassadors here at King Charles 1. The Community Ambassadors have been busy delivering the “Keep it Real” presentation within their school as part of National Personal Safety Day. They also went out to Chaddesley Corbett Primary and St Georges Primary to deliver assemblies on Firework safety. Great work!
Baxter College have held their first meeting with their new Community Ambassadors.
With the support of Mrs Taylor, PCSO Thompson and Jeannette Lane from Safer Wyre Forest, the Community Ambassadors started to overcome their nerves and soon started to exchange ideas on a couple of campaigns.
Our ‘16 Days Of Action’, in support of the White Ribbon Campaign against domestic abuse starts on 25th November and runs until 10th December. This international campaign encourages men to speak out against violence against women and girls.
Our theme this year is a white tree either 1D or 3D with personal pledge ribbons/hands or leaves which all students can be part of. We have had fantastic support previously from all the high schools across Wyre Forest and look forward to working alongside your Community Ambassadors again in raising awareness on domestic abuse.
National Personal Safety Day is on Wednesday 7th October and this year’s theme is urging young men throughout the UK to ‘Keep It REAL’, by making themselves aware of the dangers and taking steps to ensure their own safety.
