Tuesday 11th February is Safer Internet Day.

Here at Clarendon students will have a day filled with activities designed to empower young people to take control of their digital lives. For 2020 we are putting the focus on online identity and asking young people to consider whether they and their peers are truly free to be themselves online.

This year, we are exploring whether young people feel free to be themselves online. We will explore how young people manage their online identity, and how the internet shapes how they think of themselves and others. We will look at whether the internet allows young people to experiment and express themselves, or if they feel limited in who they can be online. By opening up conversations around online identity, we aim to inspire young people to support each other in being who they want to be. We want Safer Internet Day 2020 to celebrate difference and help us work towards creating a truly inclusive internet.

Year 9 have been using Photoshop to present their online identity as part of the Safer Internet Day – Tuesday 11th February.

Their designs explore how online identity can be a positive tool​ enabling them to express themselves and their interests.

Help support us by joining in the fun at home! Safer Internet Day 2020 will be celebrated globally with the theme: Together for a better internet.
