Keeping ourselves safe online is so important, especially now when so much is having to be done via the internet. Taruca Class had a great afternoon with Lincolnshire Stay Safe Officer, Neil Bontoft, via TEAMS on Friday, where they talked about the things they like to do online and how to ensure they keep themselves safe. We were impressed with how much the children knew, such as it is very important our passwords are strong and not easily guessed and that we are careful with what we share. Neil reminded us that some popular online games are for people much older, as are most social media sites such as TikTok and WhatsApp.
The children had lots of ideas for what to do if they come across anything online that worries or upsets them and they were all encouraged to speak to a trusted adult whether that was someone at home, school or via Childline.
