The Digital Leaders produced a poster with their Top 5 Tips for staying safe online and shared this across the school and wider community. They also posted their ideas on Twitter.

P7 have been using Google’s ‘ Be Internet Legends’ programme and have been learning about their ‘ Digital Footprint ‘ and responsible sharing of information. They have also discovered what a ‘ phishing ‘ scam is and that everything online is not always as it seems. P7 now know a range of ways of identifying ‘ phishing ‘ scams and how to respond to them and will continue to develop their understanding of cyber safety over the next few weeks.

P1/2 discussed the Top 5 Tips suggested by the Digital Leaders . They also watched ‘ Lee & Kim’ , a cartoon based superhero who deals with sharing personal information.
