Safer Internet Day – Our IT Pals ran an informative Safer Internet Day on Wednesday. This was reinforced in the afternoon with a visit from PC Lindsay who ran a workshop with Y3&4 on SMART rules and Y5&6 on cyberbullying.

During her visit, PC Lindsay spoke with children about the use of the app, TikTok (formerly known as Musical.ly). Although this app is age-rated 13+, there are a significant number of pupils in school who say they use it. If you do allow your child to use this app,
please read the following information. TikTok advice for parents and ensure their settings are Private.
