Safer Internet Day 2018

We have been learning all about keeping safe on the internet this week. Tuesday 6th February was Safer Internet Day and at Holly Grove we are committed to the safe and responsible use of the internet. We have spent the whole week learning all about e-safety and how we can keep ourselves safe at school and at home.

Key stage 1 have been designing their own e-safety posters to highlight the negatives and the positives of using the internet, they have also made an e-safety brochure using the book creator app. Class 5 and 6 worked together and made an e-safety quiz for the younger children. The children used YES and NO symbols to answer the questions. Class 7 have learnt a song called “Buddies use the Tablet Safely” which they performed for the whole school in assembly and Class 8 performed a role play, highlighting to the whole school the dangers of talking to strangers on the internet. It has been a very busy week here at Holly Grove.

The school council have come up with their own Online Safety Rules.

  • Do not use the internet without an adults permission.
  • Do not download a file or a picture without checking with an adult first, it could be a virus.
  • Always be safe online.
  • If a stranger talks to you online, be safe and tell an adult.
  • Do not give out your personal details online, like full name, date of birth, address or password.
  • Be kind online and respect other people.
  • Do not agree to meet anyone you have been talking to online.
  • Always tell an adult you trust if you see anything that makes you feel scared, uncomfortable or confused.
