Digital Leaders                    

Using technology and the Internet well is about using it safely and responsibly which we teach our children about and promote by the presence of Digital Leaders and the Jessie & Friends resources. This helps ensure that they have the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding to successfully navigate themselves through the online world, so they become good digital citizens.

Who is part of our team?

Our Digital Leaders are made up of our Gifted and Talented in Computing class representatives from Years 1 and 2, totalling to an amazing 6 Digital Leaders! They meet every Friday lunchtime with Miss Rashid and Mrs Buckle. Their excellent Computing skills will aim to build confidence and support children in their class who find aspects of computing difficult, research and use new educational apps to support Teaching and Learning in the classroom.

 

      

 

What is their role?

A Digital Leader is a pupil who is part of a Digital Leaders Team, whose role is to help promote, support the use of and further the development of Computing and Technology in school. They help carry out and promote events throughout the year, carry out Online Safety assemblies to the whole school and help run competitions across the school to promote Purple Mash and the Artist of the Half-term.

 


Online Safety with Jessie and Friends

The key message throughout Jessie and Friends is that if a child is ever worried by anything online, they should tell a grown-up they trust, who will help them. However, before watching these videos we advise you to read through the guidance on the ThinkuKnow website.

The Jessie & Friends animations are age-appropriate resources and do not depict any situations where adults communicate with children online. Instead. They show safe, non-scary situations which help young viewers identify things which might worry them online. 

Safer Internet Day 2024

We joined schools and youth organisations across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day 2024 to celebrate staying safe online. It is a global campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology. This year's theme was 'Inspiring change? Making a difference, managing influence and navigating change online’. The children had an exciting day full of activities surrounding Online Safety. Some children travelled through time to see how technology has changed and continues to impact people’s lives. Many activities were also linked to PSHE, where children learnt to express a range of feelings that could be caused by technology and the Internet.

  

Purple Mash Festive Card Competition

Our school entered a Purple Mash competition on 2Paint a Picture to design a festive card, reflecting whatever this time of year meant to them. Children could pick painting style that they like and submitted it to the competition display board for their age group. Everyone was welcome to enter the competition, from home or school. All entrants were awarded participation certificates by our Digital Leaders in assembly, take a look at some of their amazing entries!

    

Anti-Bullying Week 2023

We took part in Odd Socks day to promote anti-bullying and tolerance of us all being unique. Anti-Bullying Week allowed us to explore a cross-curricular link between Computing and PSHE as children learnt to talk about physical, verbal, social and cyber bullying.
