e-Safety Officers and Safer Internet Day.

Safer Internet Day Tuesday 5th Feb 2019 - Together for a better Internet.

This year our wonderful e-safety officers planned an informative assembly about staying safe online particularly when using apps on mobile devices. Each officer went through a different scenario and gave the children four options about what they should do next in the scenario. We found that there was a similar pattern to each and that was that if anything makes us feel uneasy or asks for personal and private information we should always seek guidance from an adult. Here is the full powerpoint presentation which was shown to the children. 

 

At the end of the assembly the e-safety team opened up this years competition to create new posters for our computer area in school. 

We were overwhelmed with the response and had to choose between 92 entries! Thank you to everyone who entered, it was a very difficult decision to narrow it down. In the end we have chosen 8 posters to decorate our computing area in school. Congratulations to all the winners.

Third Place : Zainab (Y2), Anna Roy (Y5) & Joe (Y4)

Second Place : Samantha (Y5), Amelie (Y4) & Osian (Y1)

First Place : Angelo (Y2) & Maria (Y5)

Safer Internet Day 2018.

The theme this year was 'Create, Connect and Share Respect.'

Our e-safety team got together and planned and delivered another assembly to KS1 and KS2. Our e-safety officers delivered a message to the rest of the school to encourage positive online experiences. This included information about how to be safe and respectful when talking to others online. The e-safety team then gave the children a task to design a jigsaw puzzle piece to demonstrate how to make online experiences positive. These jigsaw puzzles were then joined together and displayed on our school facebook page. Well done team for another successful assembly!

Congratulations to our new e-Safety officers 2017!

Two children have been chosen from each KS2 class to form an e-Safety group. These children will be responsible for ensuring that e-Safety is a key part of our learning here at St Thomas Aquinas and together with Miss Clarke, will assist with highlighting the importance of e-Safety throughout our school. They will help to deliver assemblies and make other children in our school aware of the importance of staying safe online.

 

Their first task was to deliver a short assembly to the school to introduce themselves and to inform the children of a competition that we have entered with Signal One to design a 'No Troll Zone!' logo.

The overall winner of the competition will get to have their logo displayed on school webpages and the lucky school get to have an end-of-term disco courtesy of Signal One.

 

Well done on your first task e-Safety team!

 

Safer Internet Day 2017.

Our e-Safety team prepared a whole school assembly to promote 'Safer Internet Day 2017.' Each member of the team was involved and successfully delivered the message of 'how to stay safe' to our school community. The e-safety officers were also given their e-safety team lanyards by Mrs Bekalo and introduced another task for all of the children to complete. KS1 were asked to create posters to promote e-safety and KS2 were asked to write a rap or poem about how to stay safe online. Watch this space for updates on the winners!
