Tuesday 6th February marks the annual internet safety day. This year the theme is "Create, connect and share respect".

We will be having class assemblies on this theme , and the afternoon of the 6th will be dedicated to E-safety activities relating to the theme.

 

I have downloaded materials you can access to use at home with your children on the subject of E-safety, these will appear at the bottom of this page. To find out more about internet safety day please follow this link

Mr Brown and Mrs Hatton accompanied some of the Class 4 pupils today to The Vale Academy in Brigg. Here, they took part in the "Hour of Code" alongside 27 million other children across the country.

I was lucky enough to be invited to Class 4 this Friday and watch these children teach their peers how to code using a Minecraft programme. It was great to see how engaged the children were with their problem solving based learning. 

We all came away from this lesson feeling more confident, and excited about furthering our learning in code. 

If you would like to try this at home, here is the link you will need:

Well done all.

What to do if something happens to your child online, and who to contact:

We would also ask that you speak to the Principal and E-Safety Co-ordinator should something unfortunate happen whilst your child accesses the internet at home. This way we can support you and your family.

 

Privacy Issues:

The link below covers the topic of privacy issues online. There is a misconception that internet safety and internet privacy are one and the same, but there is much more to maintaining privacy than the usual “internet safety best practices”.
The information contained in this link will help to protect you from things like identity theft (1 in 40 families have been affected by child identity theft) as well as algorithm-triggered advertising. Please do take a look. Many thanks to Sophie from Comparitech for providing us with this link.
