Today we had a visit from Simon who works on E-safety at Northamptonshire Country Council. He lead workshops with Year 5 and 6 looking at the dangers online and highlighting the importance of staying safe. He also reminded us of the age restrictions on certain apps including Whatsapp (16) and Facebook (13) and the importance to listening to this – it is there for a reason! Remember that technology is not the problem, it’s how we use it! Simon also mentioned about our digital footprint which we learnt about yesterday so we could tell him all about it!
On a side note – Thank you to all the parents who turned up to morning/ evening workshops today. In total, there were around 80 people who attended which was great to see. When speaking to parents afterwards, many believed it was such a worthwhile session and very informative. Let’s help keep our children safe online both at school and home. Please spread the word! 🙂
