Online Safety Day 2023
On the 7th February we took part in Online Safety Day. Throughout the day we discussed potential dangers and how to keep ourselves safe online. We also took part in a nationwide live lesson with the BBC. As part of Online Safety Day school counsellors carried out a pupil survey in their class to find out what we do online, how we access it and out thoughts and feelings about it. They then collated their results and presented it to their class.
We recently asked our pupils about how safe they feel in school and as you can see our results show our safety weeks, Kidsafe programme and general safeguarding in the school help to make children feel safe and secure.
