Safer Internet Day and Parentzone

Safer Internet Day - Tuesday 6 February 2018

St Bede's is marking this by participating in a 'No Tech 4 Breck' day. We will be encouraging students and staff to avoid using their mobile phones between 8.30am-3.15pm. There will be an opportunity to donate money towards the Breck Foundation charity should you wish.

Parent Zone’s Digital Schools

Our school is also part of Parent Zone’s Digital Schools Membership programme, recognising our commitment to keeping our pupils safer online, and making sure we work with you to achieve this.

Our Digital Schools membership provides St Bede's parents FREE access to Parent Zone’s brand new Parent Lounge with:

  • Online training

  • Expert advice and information on all things digital

  • Access to a free help service for all your tech questions

Parents should look out for a letter via Insight with login instructions.

Parent Zone have also published a free resource called '3 apps parents should know about', to help keep up to date with social media used by young people.

3 apps parents should know about

Keeping up with social media trends can be difficult, not least when young people flock to the latest apps and platforms offering new and innovative ways to interact online. 
To help you out, Parentzone have created an easily-downloadable PDF, which offers the lowdown on three of the most popular new apps – YuboMonkey and Musical.ly

Download the free resource, which highlights each app's content, age restrictions and key capabilities.
