The day begun with Mr. Stephens engaging the children with an e-Safety assembly that highlighted the potential risks everyday electronic devices can pose when handled inappropriately.
In their afternoon sessions, the children engaged with age appropriate e-Safety activities that are recommended by Thinkuknow, a leading e-Safety organisation that specialises in e-Safety for children.
These activities ranged from discussing the types of information it is safe to share with various groups of people all the way up to discussions about cyber-bullying and the risks social media presents.
As ever, many of these activities were cross-curricular in nature. From literacy based tasks, computing tasks and art tasks - all the way to a dance in a P.E lesson.
We cannot emphasise enough that parents should play an active role in the digital lives of their children until they are at an age where they understand the dangers of using electronic devices.
To this end, Chadwell St. Mary Primary will be providing e-Safety seminars for parents so that as a whole community; we can tackle e-Safety issues from a position of knowledge and understanding.
An upgrade to this website shall include an e-Safety page where information about this vital issue will be shared.
