Internet Legends Assembly
On the 30th November, key stage 2 learnt how to become internet legends with help from an assembly presented by Google. The children learnt all about sharing information, safe passwords and much more. We hope the children now apply this knowledge to when they are online to keep themselves safe.

Splats Online Safety Show - February 2018
On Monday 5th February, Paul from Splats worked with Year 5 and 6 about staying safe online. This linked to Safer Internet Day which was on Tuesday 6th February. Each class had a drama session with Paul and Year 5 and 6 put on a show for the rest of the school in the afternoon. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and learnt some key information: Use your firewall and security settings correctly; put yourself in other people's shoes; if you see something you shouldn't or that you don't agree with then stop and ignore it; and to tell an adult if you see something inappropriate or if something happens that you don't like.
