As a school we have already achieved the nationally recognised 360 Online Safety Award and days like SID help to celebrate the successes and positive messages we are giving to our children and families.
The day began with some of our Year 6 pupils and Digital Directors engaging with parents and grandparents at the school gates. The children encouraged the adults to consider the positive uses of the internet and how the internet is used by different people for different purposes.
In the classroom, the children took part in a variety of engaging and exciting activities which addressed a plethora of internet safety issues. The activities undertaken by each year group were evidenced through continual tweets throughout the day and these proved to be very popular with some high profile companies/people such as The UK Safer Internet Centre, Online Safety Cymru and Sally Holland, the Children’s Commissioner for Wales.
We thoroughly enjoyed SID 2017 but realise that e-safety has to be delivered and discussed on a regular basis due to its high importance. We are fully committed to making our school a digitally safe place to be and to producing responsible and safe users of all digital technologies.
