We have continued to have regular discussions with our classes about staying safe online and speaking out to a trusted adult if the feel unsafe. We have watched the NSPCC class assembly and discussed the importance of ‘Speaking out and Staying Safe’. We recapped how to sign the childline number and we discussed how to stay safe on the different apps the children may use. Please continue to closely monitor your child’s online activity.
Remember, tomorrow we are celebrating Comic Relief, your child can wear one piece of red clothing alongside their normal school uniform.
Kind regards,
Year 6 Team​
