PACT Online Safety Day - Tuesday 4th July 2017

pact osd july17

Tuesday 4th July is our final PACT Online Safety Day of the academic year!

Children will be participating in an Online, Fact, Fiction and Myth lesson to help them understand the need to validate information online.  This is particularly relevant at the moment with the increase in 'fake news' which is spreading further and faster because of social media.

We will also be running a range of Parent Workshops throughout the week.  During these workshops we will be addressing some of the recent Online Safety issues in the news, including the new Snapchat feature, the 'Snap Map'.

Our Parent Workshops will be running as follows:-

For Heathfield Primary School Parents: Monday 3rd July 2017 2:50-3:15pm
For Prince Albert Primary School Parents: Tuesday 4th July 2017 3:00-3:30pm
For Highfield J&I School Parents: Thursday 6th July 2017 2:50-3:15pm

We look forward to seeing you there!

The pack includes lots of information on safeguarding risks to children and also gives parents tips and advice on ways to reduce those risks. Please take a few moments to have a look through the safeguarding pack (available here) or if you'd prefer a paper copy we have them available at the main offices at each of our schools for you to collect.
