During assemblies and lessons the children investigated ‘Our Internet, Our Choice, which encouraged children to work together to be positive, safe and respectful online. These sessions empowered children to take control of their digital lives and consider how consent works in an online context. They explored how young people ask for, give and receive consent online. This could be in friendships, how they take and share images and videos or how they manage their privacy and data.
The children worked well together during the morning to discuss the issues and hopefully will now consider their choices more carefully to help them stay safer online. It has been stressed that children should discuss their options with a trusted adult before making any decisions that could affect them.
Parents have been asked to support these issues and discuss any concerns children may have.
