Safer Internet Day 2019...Together for a better Internet.
Our E-Safety council led whole school worship today (Tuesday 5th February). The group talked about how children and parents can stay safe online. The children read a story about sharing personal information online and what to do if you are asked to send some. Each class then went away to discuss the themes that came out of their worship and take part in E-Safety activities.
Children from each year group in the school meet regularly with Mr Tranmer to discuss how we can all stay safe when using technology at school and in the home. We take E-safety very seriously at Eckington First School, so talk about the topic to help all to understand and be aware.
Each class takes part in regular class based learning sessions from the 'ThinkUknow' website. We also have termly worship time to reflect on E-Safety topics. The school takes part in the annual National E-Safety day through an assembly and further class based activities during the week.
Every child and adult in school has also agreed to and signed the county acceptable use policy.
Children in KS1 have adopted this poem:
Click, click, click,
You need to
Think, think, think
and TELL SOMEONE!

This week the E-Safety council met and decided to help promote E-Safety and The national E-Safety day campaign on Tuesday 7th February 2017. The children have planned to run a homework poster competition to raise the profile. Keep looking back for the entries and winners!
Last week we had an interesting visit from our local community police officers. They came to talk to each class about E-Safety. The children were really receptive and communicated their thoughts and understanding well in a polite and friendly way.
The children knew about how to keep themselves safe, what not to do and what to do. The police officers were really impressed with their knowledge and understanding.
Later in the day, many of our parents came into school and had a parent talk from the police officers about what they as parents can do to help keep our children safe.

As part of our continuing drive to develop and improve our E-Safety for our children, we use 'Hector the Dolphin'. The children will find him floating in the top corner of the desktop. If the children see something they feel uncomfortable with on screen, all they have to do is click on Hector and he will block the screen and tell the child to get an adult.
The children in our E-Safety council feel this is an excellent step to help ensure we all stay safe on line.
