LOSTOCK Gralam CE Primary School has been promoting safe use of technology by supporting Safer Internet Day 2016.

The school joined hundreds of other organisations across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day and promoting the safe and responsible use of technology.

To mark the day, the school's E-Safety Officers asked pupils to design a heart showing how pupils could make the internet a better place by showing kindness to others.

They also led a special E-Safety Assembly educating everyone about E-Safety.

The theme of Safer Internet Day 2016 was ‘Play your part for a better internet’, and offered the opportunity to focus on the creative and positive things children and young people are doing online, as well as the role everyone plays in helping to create a better internet.

Gill Barker, head teacher of Lostock Gralam CE Primary School said: “All aspects of pupil safety are of great importance to us at Lostock Gralam CE Primary School, not least safety online.

“Excellent work goes on throughout the year, led by our pupil e-safety officers, to ensure e-safety remains high on the agenda.

“For example, posters have been made to display around school, fliers with reminders are placed on lunch tables each day and regular reminders are highlighted during special assemblies and competitions.

“In addition, there are up-dates and tips for parents in our monthly newsletter, with links to useful websites and parent meetings with the Safer Schools Internet Partner.”
