We hope that you were able to attend one or more of our e-safety assemblies in May. The children are always very enthusiastic and work so hard preparing their activities so are always very pleased with the number of parents and carers who come to watch. During the last assemblies the children shared how they keep safe online by singing songs and taking part in plays.
This February six of our year 5 children attended an online safety ambassadors course at Boughton School with Mrs Ralph. They introduced themselves in one of our whole school assemblies.
They have planned many activities including visiting classes, designing posters to put around the school and competitions. They also took part in a recent online safety assembly that was attended by parents.
They have called themselves Digital Guardians and have already visited all Key Stage 2 and some Key Stage 1 classes to remind them of the Smart Rules.
