Safer Internet Day 2021

Safer Internet Day 2021

 St John's are celebrating Safer Internet Day 2021 on the 9th of February, focusing on the theme, ‘An internet we trust – exploring reliability in the online world’. Safer Internet Day inspires a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. The children will be taking part in remote activities during the day, to spark meaningful conversations about online safety.
We have created a presentation for parents, the link is below, highlighting how you can help keep your child safe online as well as information on the support St John's provides. Miss Pilkington will be running an open Q&A session to discuss any questions following this presentation on Tuesday 9th February at 4pm via Microsoft Teams (the invite has been sent via your child's Microsoft Teams account).
Thank you for your support in improving the online safety of children at St John's.

Go-Read Guide for Parents


GoRead provides a digital reading record for all of our pupils.

Using GoRead removes the need for paper copies of reading records that can be lost or damaged.

Students will build up a full digital reading record across their entire journey through school.

The reading app supports parents with a simple login and provides children with a range of digital rewards and challenges for reading a range of books.
