ONLINE safety has been in the spotlight this week at Moreton Hall. Children have been taking part in a series of activities designed to get them thinking about how to stay safe on the internet.

Reception Class kicked off the week by working on symmetry with their computers, whilst in the Art Department, older pupils expressed what the Internet meant to them through their artwork. Other children took to the floor to perform role plays about safety online.

Charlie Thompson, Deputy Head at Moreton Hall, said: “Teaching online safety to children, whatever their age, is extremely important, and Safer Internet Day is a great way for us to reinforce this.”

The activities were part of Safer Internet Day 2019, an international event held annually to encourage people to think about using the web responsibly, respectfully and creatively.
