An outside company visited Shortbrook to hold individual class productions/workshops to introduce the children to the dangers of the internet and social media. These were hands on workshops with role play to get the pupils involved and have a better understanding. The pupils took the message seriously but also had a lot of fun and laughs whilst learning. The story behind the workshop started with a group of pupils taking a picture with a 'selfie stick' and then posting it online, they began to receive hurtful messages and the children were taught how to deal with these sort of e-safety issues.
As a school we are delighted to be able to provide children with the use of ICT equipment to help deliver our curriculum. It is essential to ensure that all children are aware of and understand a range of e-safety issues.
For parents and carers the use of internet on devices such as ipads, mobile phones etc has opened up a whole new world of dangers. As a parent it can sometimes be a struggle to keep up with what our children are doing online.
As a school we use google safesearch which allows children to browse the internet safely as it filters what is available for the children to see.

Net Aware is a simple guide to the social network sites your child may use. It is very useful to have on your phone.
