We worked with Denise Gray, IT Consultant, again for national E-Safety Day on 7th February 2017.
Denise talked to the school council about the importance of being a cyber-buddy, someone who helps children to make sure that they stay safe online.
Denise held workshops for Year 6 pupils and spoke to the whole school in assembly.
Denise spoke to over 40 parents from the Lady Bankes Schools at the end of the school day. Her key message to parents was to talk to your children about their online activity and to model good practice. She talked about being a good digital citizen, remembering that anything put online is there forever, to observe the age limits on apps, and not to panic if your child encounters something inappropriate but be calm and deal with it. It you don't panic they are more likely to confide in you in the future.
