E-safety and 500 words

This week the whole school have been learning about e-safety. Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year in over a hundred countries to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people and inspire a national conversation. Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

Safer Internet Day is a fantastic opportunity to reflect as a family about how you can use the internet and technology safely, responsibly and positively. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, foster carer, aunt, uncle or older sibling – we can all play a role in empowering children to enjoy their time online! To find out more CLICK HERE

You may have heard of BBC Radio 2's short story-writing competition for children, in association with Oxford University Press. Stanmore School children are entering this year so prepare to be amazed. Children from Year 5 and 6 took part in a live interactive programme for schools, inspiring children to come up with their own amazing 500 Words story ideas.

We were delighted to see the name of our school appear on the screen! To watch the lesson again CLICK HERE

Good luck to everyone participating in the competition! Don’t forget your Keys for Success.

As leaders and teachers we are continuing our improvement journey. We are looking forward to working in partnership with you at our school improvement meetings next week: Wednesday evening 7pm and Thursday morning 9am. We hope to see you there.
