Safer Internet Day 2018

In order to reinforce our embedded Online Safety education, our school participated in the annual Safer Internet Day. In the morning, the Key Stage 2 assembly focussed on how comments online can affect people. Our pupils discussed various scenarios and reflected on the best ways to respond and react.

In the afternoon, each class was given a task to complete. Some participated in drama activities, where they acted out different issues, whilst others discussed and rated how online comments made them feel.

Although safer internet use forms part of our weekly Computing lessons, the day was an excellent opportunity for children to think about the various issues that might arise when communicating online.
