The internet, mobile technologies, portable games consoles, social networking and instant messaging services are all becoming increasingly more important in society. As a school, we recognise our role is not to ignore these technologies, but to teach children the underpinning knowledge and behaviours which will help them to stay safe online. As teachers and parents it is important to keep our knowledge of potential dangers, useful strategies, trends and related threats up to date.
This section of our VLE contains information, links and contact details related to e-safety. Use the links below to find out more about how you and your children can stay safe online. Click on the links below for help and advice.

Safer Internet Day was celebrated around the world on Tuesday 9th February with the slogan: Together for a Better Internet
In school and at home we watched virtual assemblies exploring this year’s theme.
We have decided to run a poster competition over half term to show what we can do to create a more reliable internet.
There will be a prize for the best entry for each class.
To get involved watch the virtual assemblies linked below. Print the poster template (if you do not have a printer you can just copy this template onto paper).
Decorate the template in any way which suits you.
Use paint or edit the pdf to fill the page with…
• Questions to ask when you are looking at information online, for example: Who wrote this? Why was it written?
• Pictures of what a better, more trustworthy internet could look like. Or images of online clues that may make something seem less reliable or trustworthy.
• Pledges of what they will do to help create a more trustworthy internet, such as, “I will only share things I have checked are true” or “I will support my friends if fake news upsets them.”
Take a picture of your poster then email it to the school office stating your child’s name and year group.
You could also upload your picture to Twitter making sure you use the hashtags #Thingwallprima1 #AnInternetWeTrust and #SaferInternetDay
Entries will be judged after half term.
Have fun and good luck!
