Tuesday 19th June marks the last of our Online Safety days for this academic year. During the day, your child will take part in a number of Online Safety activities. These include: re-designing our school Online Safety button and screen for our computers. The digital leaders will then short list to find the winner for each school. The winning entry will be digitalised and used from September 2018 on every Computer in their school.
Children will also be taught about the dangers of playing games that are not appropriate for their age. From this, children will create a class video where they will be encouraged to create songs, raps and role plays to give out the online safety message.
Please ask your child what they have learnt and share amongst your family.
