Young people continue to inspire their peers and parents to be safe online

Posted on 13 June 2019

The Childnet Digital Leaders Programme aims to empower young people to become internet safety role models within their schools, allowing them to play a major part in educating their peers, parents and teachers about staying safe online

In the Programme Digital Leaders go through training modules on our fun and engaging online platform.  Within the modules, Digital Leaders learn about a variety of internet safety topics, including fake news, critical thinking and screen time.

The programme provides a great opportunity for students to work collaboratively in a team that spans year groups and have the exciting responsibility of being involved in online safety education within their school. It promotes leadership opportunities and Digital Leaders are encouraged to use their creativity to share their knowledge

King’s Ely Digital Leaders engage parents in a ‘Digital Picnic’

Digital Leaders from King’s Ely have hosted their first ‘Digital Picnic’ for the year, with more planned over the next few months.  The digital picnics are the King’s Ely Digital Leaders way of inviting parents in to discuss the issues affecting young people online, as well as offering practical advice and resources that can help them.

The picnic involved pupils from years 2 to 5 and their parents and carers. Performance author Simon Firth performed a story about a boy and his digital safety bubble. The story was very engaging for both children and adults and they could recognise when the boy was safe online.
