Mims Davies MP is calling for schools to join 'Be Internet Legends Day' on Tuesday 28th November, 2023.
Be Internet Legends by Google, in partnership with Parent Zone, is an online safety programme – helping children become safer, more confident explorers of the online world. It provides free teaching resources, assemblies, and much more, and no extra training is required for teachers.
Not only are there resources for teachers and schools, but parents can also access free downloadable activities to help understand and support a child's online world.
Be Internet Legends Day is a brilliant opportunity to join schools across the UK for a one-off virtual assembly, featuring some special guests, as well as parents and families having the opportunity to join and stream from home.
If you're interested in being involved, you can register for updates and resources here. Any UK schools that teach children between the ages of 7 and 11 years old can download and/or request the brilliant resources for free.
Mims Davies MP said:
