Our first PACT Online Safety Day of the new academic year will be taking place on Tuesday 21st November 2017 across all of our schools.
The day will include:
- EYFS looking at the story of Digi-Duck and how to be a good online friend.
- Key Stage 1 will be looking at safe searching online and will be producing a range of media such as videos, comic strips and recipes with instructions on how to keep safe online by searching safely.
- Key Stage 2 will also be looking at safe searching online, alongside topics such as reporting concerns, copyright and plagiarism, as well as the importance of citing/referencing sources of information, photographs, etc. They will be producing a range of media such as raps, songs and adverts. They will also use their knowledge and skills to safely and effectively research their current Learning for Life topics, for example, Year 5 will be looking at Ancient Egypt.
We will also be running events for parents at each of our schools throughout the week. Following feedback from parents and teachers, these workshops will focus on:
- Children playing age restricted games – what do the age ratings mean?
- Child friendly search engines – how can I keep my child safe when searching?
During the workshops, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and seek advice on topics surrounding the age restriction of games, films and websites.
Our Parent Workshops will be running as follows:-
- For Prince Albert Primary School Parents: Monday 20th November 2017 3:00-3:30pm
- For Highfield J&I School Parents: Tuesday 21st November 2017 3:00-3:30pm
- For Heathfield Primary School Parents: Wednesday 22nd November 2017 2:45-3:15pm
This is a fantastic opportunity to ask for advice, put your mind at ease or just enquire as to what you can do to keep your child safe online at home. We look forward to seeing you there!
