On Wednesday 12th February, East Hoathly celebrated National e-Safety Day! We had an assembly dedicated to Online Safety then the children, in their individual classes, had a workshop from Andrew Gunn, an ICT and e-Safety expert.
Mr Gunn said that there are good things about being online but sometimes very dangerous things, some apps like Whatsapp and Snapchat have age restrictions to keep you safe online. Mr Gunn also said that it isn’t good to be on the internet before you got to bed because of the blue light—it can be a struggle to get to sleep. – Holly L in Year 5
Year 5 and 6, additionally, had e-Safety Ambassadors from Kings Academy Ringmer come to talk to them about Online Safety. They showed the children a video to allow them to understand the importance of being safe online.
