What a fantastic week planned and delivered by an inspiring set of children! This year, our Safer Internet Day was made possible by the brilliant efforts of our Junior Leadership Team.

Safer Internet Week 2016 kicked off with an amazing assembly delivered by the local police illustrating the importance of staying safe when using the internet and how we can protect ourselves. Following that, some of our amazing children from across the school took part in ‘Click Start’ – an online safety ‘Play in a Day’ which was then performed to the rest of the school. Who knew we had so many budding actors and actresses?

Across this week, the children and staff worked hard on promoting all aspects of online safety to ensure that our children had a solid grounding and understood how, and why, it was important to use technology responsibly and safely. Having established a successful format for our Safer Internet Week, the JLT decided that each year group was to produce a multimedia piece of work to show in a whole school assembly on Friday. Year 3 were to make raps and record them, Year 4 were to make a trailer, Year 5 to record a news report and Year 6 were to make a quiz using Scratch.

Led by the JLT, the assembly began with specifically chosen music and then the children themselves welcomed parents and talked briefly about what having a safer internet means to them. They also demonstrated online safety powerpoints that they had spent their lunchtimes working on. Then the assembly was handed over to the four year groups to present their work. The videos and multimedia presentations were amazing and all the children and staff had gone to town!

The assembly was a remarkable showcase of the understanding of Safer Internet Week and the ideas that we had been promoting. We were also delighted by the amount of parents who came to join us for the assembly – thank you!
