  • MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN THE SAME ROOM AS YOUR CHILD WHEN THEY ARE USING THE INTERNET on ANY DEVICE

 

ESPECIALY WHEN WATCHING VIDEOS ON YOU TUBE - there is https://www.youtube.com/kids/ for children but still be in the same room and keep checking what they are watching. 

 

  • IF THEY CHILDREN HAVE A GAMES CONSOLE THEN ENSURE THE SECURITY SETTINGS ARE SET FOR CHILDREN

WE HAVE SOME WONDERFUL YEAR 5 and 6 CHILDREN WHO ARE OUR CYBER AMBASSADORS and THEY RUN CYBER SAFETY SESSIONS FOR THE OTHER CHILDREN IN KEY STAGE TWO. They have been trained by Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner's Cyber Safety Team. 

 

This is a letter received by the Police Cyber Ambassador Coordinator when after she observed our CYBER AMBASSADOR carryout their training this year...

 

Dear Jon LeFevre and Cyber Ambassadors at Pilgrims Cross Church of England Primary School,

 

Thank you for allowing me to join you for Safer Internet Day 2019.

 

A massive well done for delivering an important message on Internet Safety to your peers in years 3 and 4. I witnessed your passion for your role as Cyber Ambassadors in delivering the two sessions. The various activities such as the discussions and ‘the dance moves’ with your peers were very interactive and engaging. You showcased good organisational skills in clear role delegation. I enjoyed watching you interact and deliver your first session with Mr LeFevre. You are an amazing team, keep up the good work.

 

The Cyber Ambassadors independently delivered the second session without the help of Mr LeFevre. I was very impressed by their ability to take on leadership by the stride in delivering an important message to their peers with such confidence.

 

I admired the unity between the pupils and their head teacher in planning and delivering the sessions. I am pleased to see pupils and school staff working well together as a team.

 

Thank you to the Head teacher and School Staff for continuously supporting them.

 

Yours Sincerely,

 

Marcia Tanyanyiwa

 

Cyber Ambassador Coordinator
