The children at Oakham C of E took part in a number of different activities to raise awareness of the importance of staying safe online. We used the national 'Safer Internet Day 2018' resources and ideas to help discuss being safe online and what it actually means. Digital Leaders and House Captains led a Key Stage 2 assembly (pictures also posted on Twitter) and each class spent time discussing and carrying out relevant activities. Earlier in the term, Year 3 and 4 attended a theatre production based around 'In the Net.' The interactive performance provided the children the key message about how to stay safe when using technological devices.
Parents were invited to an e-safety awareness session on Safer Internet Day 2016. The session covered various areas of e-safety and encouraged parents to be aware of the ever changing face of technology. The session was lead by Mr Scott and Mrs Patel with a guest appearance from our Digital Leaders. The DL's talked about the curriculum and their role within the school.
The KS2 children recently (Jan 2016) completed an e-safety questionnaire in school. They were asked to be very honest with their anonymous replies. Please click on the links below to see the responses that they gave.
On e-safety day, February 9th 2016, all classes took part in various age appropriate discussions and activities regarding internet safety. At the end of the day the KS2 children took part in an e-safety assembly. The Digital Leaders visited the KS1 classrooms to share some information and introduced the younger children to some important messages. Please click on the link below to view the assembly Powerpoint that was used.
