Children across the UK are spending increasing amounts of time on the internet, and at younger ages. Although this brings many opportunities to enjoy themselves and learn, it also bring potential risks.
Buckinghamshire County Council are lucky enough to receive an award of money, as part of the Cybercrime grant from the Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner, to help younger children stay safe online.
Buckinghamshire have commissioned school drama specialists AlterEgo Creative Solutions (creators of Chelsea’s Choice) to provide a play suitable for children in Year 6. It will help them learn about online risk and healthy online behaviour and realtionships.
The play will be visiting 40 schools in Buckinghamshire and our school has secured a performance so that your child can benefit from this opportunity.
The play will be visiting our school on Thursday 27th September.
The play is age appropriate and it is called ‘Click’. It lasts approximately 45 minutes and will cover issues such as online safety, cyberbullying and good online communication. We will be doing follow up work to ensure that children get the maximum benefit from the play and it will be an important part of our online safety curriculum. As a follow up to the play, the children will also take part in a short, anonymous, opinion survey to measure the impact of the performance.
We hope that this will be a memorable way to enhance their safe internet usage and help our children to stay safe on line.
If you have any questions, or require any further information, please speak to Mrs Chapman-Allen.
