This week the children have had a daily lesson on e-safety during assembly time. The lessons have been based on the ‘Know IT All SMART Crew programme’. Each day the children have watched a cartoon which illustrates 5 e-safety SMART rules and include a real life SMART Crew of young people, who guide the cartoon characters in their quest, and help them make safe online decisions.
An E-safety message based on each letter of the SMART rule was covered through out the week. S for Safe, which reminds you to keep your personal details safe and be careful not to give out personal information to people you are chatting with online. M is for Meeting, you would never meet up with some one you met online for example when online gaming. A is for Accepting. You should always remember not to open an attachment when you are unsure of what it is or who it is from – whether that be text, email, instant message or a message received via Bluetooth on your mobile. It may contain a virus. R is for Reliable, which means both people, and the information you read online, may not always be reliable. You should always double check what you read with other websites, books or even by asking someone you know! T is for Tell – let a parent, a carer or a trusted adult know if you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable.
Also tell them if someone you know is being bullied online. If you would like more information on how to keep your family safe online please click on this Link . Finally, congratulations to our boy’s football team on their home win yesterday against Ashford C of E. and to 3S for a wonderful assembly on ‘Talents’.
Have a lovely weekend!
