At Featherstone Academy we pride ourselves on promoting Internet Safety. Today, KS2 had a presentation from Parentzone who work closely with Google on a variety of projects. It was great to see that not only the negative side of the internet was discussed but also all the positive impacts it can have on our lives. The presentation covered how to protect yourself from internet tricks, such as ‘pop ups’, respecting others and being kind online. They also stressed that children need to be aware that everything on line is not true, how to protect location and private settings.
The presentation was a fun interactive full of practical tips on safely sharing and why it’s important to keep certain things private. The whole assembly grabbed their attention and hopefully everyone came away with the knowledge and tools to keep themselves safe when accessing the internet. Parentzone awarded Featherstone Academy with an Internet Legends certificate.
