What difference has it made so far?
New House Rules
We launched our awards with three levels of impact.
2021 - 2022 Impact:
The impact described by families is that children have taken various steps to promote online safety to their friends, relatives, and neighbours. They have created posters, videos, PowerPoint presentations, and shared links on social media platforms to spread awareness about online safety. They have also advised their grandparents on safe online practices and helped them with their devices. Some have spoken to their friends about not adding unknown people to online games, and others have shared their knowledge about the importance of not sharing pictures online. Together, the children have made efforts to educate themselves and others about staying safe online - Amazing!
We can do even better ...
As part of safer internet day, we are launching our commitment to obtain an even more sought-after award and accreditation which will recognise our whole-school approach - including from parents/carers - to ensuring our children know how to stay safe online.
Safer Internet Day 2022
