E-Safety Computer Cops

Who are we?

We hold a number of assemblies through the school year, where we deliver our E-Safety messages to the rest of the school using videos and presentations.

On 30th September, we held a special assembly with our internet safety governor Matt Kingdon.

Survey

In March 2016, we undertook a survey of the children to find out about their computer and internet use, and assess their views on their own e-safety.

In Trewortha Class, most pupils use PCs and tablets at home, and about a third use smartphones.   The figures were a little lower in Kilmar.

In Trewortha, half the class spend at least 90 minutes on devices each day, in Kilmar it is about a third.   A quarter of each class use their devices in their bedrooms.

Six pupils in both classes have been upset by something they have seen on line.   Most would tell a trusted person if this happened to them.   Four children in total suggested they had been victims of cyber-bullying at some point.

Finally, the self rating for computer and online safety was 8.5/10 across both KS2 classes.
