Today, KS2 had a special visit from Google!

During the assembly, the children were taught how to be safe and confident explorers of the online world.

The assembly focused on the five core pillars of the Be Internet Legends educational programme, incorporating characters from an imaginary world called Interland. The pillars are:

  • Be Internet Sharp: Centered around the importance of thinking before sharing, evaluating whether a piece of information is private or not, and bearing in mind who will be able to see what is shared.
  • Be Internet Alert: Teaching pupils how to spot phishing scams and how to report them, be able to tell what is real and what is fake and to think critically about information found online.
  • Be Internet Secure: Focused on keeping personal information safe by creating unique passwords, combining characters, numbers and symbols.
  • Be Internet Kind: Encourages pupils to spread positivity online, speak up against and report bullying, and teaches them how to identify inappropriate behaviour.
  • Be Internet Brave: About standing up when witnessing something inappropriate online, and to speak to a trusted adult about any concerns.

The children loved engaging in the assembly and went away thinking about all of the important messages. Remember to stay safe online and remember to be internet legends!

Remember to ask an adult for permission to play! 🙂
