Online Safety Council News
Welcome to the first newsletter from Danesholme Junior Academy’s newly formed online safety council. The council has been formed from our very safety conscious students who wish to make the children in our academy as safe as possible when using the internet. We will endeavour to create a community which uses technology responsibly and safely. The internet is an incredible resource for our students but we all must ensure that our children are equipped with the knowledge and understanding to use this resource, minimising any risk to themselves as they do so.
Our Digital Ambassadors.
After much deliberation our duly appointed ambassadors are;
Quaid Russell-Mason (Nicor), Ava Sommerville (Delling) and Chloe Dando (Asbru).
Daisy DeBell (Hermoth), Lara Irvine (Sol) and Brooke-Louise Jaffray (Ellie).
Mia Hill (Oller), Caitlin Steele (Mani) and Mia Macleod (Loki).
Harrison Yule and Olivia Moon-Arnaez (Asgard),
Chelsea West and Macy Webber (Embla),
Zoe Rodden and Mackenzie Robinson-Webb (Jotnar).
We all look forward to working together to create a community of digitally aware students.
The ambassadors’ first task was to design a logo and tagline for our online safety council. The ambassadors voted on the entries and the winning design was by Olivia Moon-Arnaez.
Congratulations to all our ambassadors who took part and we will showcase all the entries over the next few newsletters.
This term we will be participating in Anti-Bullying week (November 13th to 17th) which is run by the Anti- Bullying Alliance. Our ambassadors will be focussing on raising awareness of cyberbullying and the harm it can cause to youngsters.
Help for parents.
There are many websites which help children learn how to stay safe online. They have lots of great information which is often shared in the form of a fun activity. Two of these websites are;
Parents have lots of advice out there too. Childnet and the NSPCC have resources which encourage parents to become involved in their child’s online safety. Check out their websites for more information.
We look forward to sharing more with you in our next newsletter.
