Safer Internet Day: CyberSafe Tool for Schools
As Safer Internet Day takes place today 8th February, Meath CYPSC together with Louth CYPSC and Wicklow CYPSC are working with CyberSafeKids (an Irish charity that educates kids on how to stay safe online), to deliver the ‘CyberSafe Tool for Schools’ to Primary Schools in these counties. Online safety has been identified by us as a key issue for young people and 98% of Irish Primary School Principals surveyed by CyberSafeKids* said that they considered online safety to be an issue in their school.
To support schools, CyberSafeKids has launched the ‘CyberSafe Tool for Schools’, designed to help schools to achieve a safer online environment in school communities. Thanks to funding from Rethink Ireland, CyberSafeKids is now offering 100 FREE places on the programme to Primary Schools in ALL COUNTIES, which involves a self-assessment tool, a report, a mark of good practice and bespoke consultation (normal package price €349).
The programme is available for Primary Schools to sign up here: https://www.cybersafekids.ie/our-tool/ or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Although similar tools exist in the UK, this is the first tool of its kind in Ireland.
A short information flyer is available here. If you have any queries on this, please contact email@example.com.
