STAY SAFE TEAM SUMMER NEWS
This term, we have distributed some e-safety books kindly donated by Tesco, to all children in Years 2 - 5 as well as copies of Digital Parenting to Years 5 & 6.
Please find below a copy of the newsletter written by the team, who want to ensure everyone stays safe online this summer.
SAFER INTERNET WEEK - FEBRUARY 2018
Our Stay Safe Team and Mr Allsopp led a fantastic assembly on the topic of internet safety as part of our Safer Internet Week activities. They encouraged us all to think before we click to ensure everyone has a positive experience using the internet.
Part of the assembly involved audience participation when they had to decide whether uploading certain photos/videos were okay or not. It was clear to everyone that we don't always find the same things as funny as our friends, so we must be careful before we say or upload anything that may be hurtful.
ROBLOX GAMES - OCTOBER 2017
We are aware that children are signing up with the Roblox site where there are a number of games they can play with others online. It is advertised to appeal to young children and there are parental controls you can put in place to help ensure your child’s safety. Please note however that the Roblox site itself warns that not all of the games available are actually suitable for primary school children. Prison Life and Jail Break for example involve violence and theft. It is very important therefore that you continue to monitor which games your child is playing on this site.
Thank you once again for your support in keeping everyone at Belmont safe online.

ONLINE SAFETY DAY WITH DAN HAWBROOK - SEPTEMBER 2017
We were pleased to welcome LSCB e-safety officer Dan Hawbrook back to Belmont on Monday when he spent time with every class discussing how to keep safe online.
From the Reception class singing and sharing the story of Smartie the Penguin to Year 5 and 6 discussing who actually owns the photos you send on apps such as Snapchat, everyone had great fun learning more about this important topic.
After a very busy day, Dan led a meeting for parents after school with ideas for what they could do at home to keep their families safer online.
We would all like to thank Dan for a brilliant day. You can see a super little video of the Reception Class over on their class page!
