Online Safety Days
Create, Connect and show Respect
Miss Pool organised an Online Safety Day on 6/2/18 to raise awareness of Respect on the internet and how to keep safe. Parents were asked to contribute by writing down how they wanted a better safe world online (see the fab comments made on the Jigsaw Sheet left hanging out on the yard for parents to contribute to in the mornings)
We linked our school values of caring, respect, responsibility, honesty to how we can demonstrate these online.
Each class made a HUGE jigsaw to piece together how we can all make our online activities safer and happier.
Children in the juniors got the opportunity to share with staff any concerns they have about their time online. This shows great responsibility and honesty- well done!
What a great day showing CREATE, CONNECT & RESPECT!
We are proud to have been awarded the prestigious Lancashire Quality Award for our Early Years provision.
