Jack Rose's musical performance to Years 5 & 6

Today pupils in Years 5 & 6 heard the musical talents of 15 year old Jack Rose and co-singer Zee with a captivating performance of popular tracks “Impossible” by James Arthur and “Supermarket flowers” by Ed Sheeran. Between the performances Jack and Zee spoke of their personal experiences of cyberbullying, discrimination and having their on line identity hacked.

The session then led on to the topic this week in school of British Values. Jack and Zee were amazed at our pupils knowledge and understanding saying “This is the first school we have been to where pupils knew all 4 British values and what they meant”. Pupils are keen to have them back and we are planning to book them once again next year.

NSPCC launch new tools to help parents ensure children are ‘#shareaware’

The campaign focuses on the need to talk to children about  online safety, much like we do "real" world safety such as crossing the road, bullying and speaking to strangers" - Kent e-Safety (Safe Online)

NSPCC has updated their excellent Net Aware tool, which is useful in helping parents and carers find out more about the social networks, apps and games that children may be using.
