Meet the Student Leaders – Road Safety Officers

Our job as the Road Safety Officers is to help children stay safe on the roads around school and to cross the road safely. We want to educate children on crossing roads and make sure that they are able to choose when and where would be the safest place to cross a road. This is important because some children don’t know how to cross the roads safely so we feel it’s our job to teach them.

Meet the Student Leaders – School Council

The School Council have been elected by our classmates. Over the year, we organise different events for our school to enjoy. We helped make the Scrap Store Play Pod for the school. We also help with lots of great activities and try to make the school as fun as possible.

It’s an important role being a School Councillor as we have to listen to the different ideas children have and try and get these things to happen.

The ICT Cadets

On Wednesday 6th of March the ICT Cadets did an assembly to the whole school about how to be safe whilst gaming. We all felt nervous – well I did!

We told the children about the PEGI ratings for how old you should be to play certain games. We asked everyone to set their privacy settings to private or friends so other people can’t join in their game. We also asked everyone to not give any personal information away like name, address, email, phone numbers, school etc. Lots of children told us the different kind of games they played. It was exciting speaking at the front and lots of children got involved with our questions.

ICT Cadet blog

On Wednesday the 6th of March, the ICT Cadets held an assembly about safe gaming. We stood at the front of the hall and talked about how we can stay safe whilst playing games online. It was great – I felt a little nervous because I have never held an assembly before.

We told them which games are suitable for their age and about what to do if someone you don’t know sends you a message or a friend request. We also talked about privacy and how to change your settings to friends only because if your settings are on public, people you don’t know can join your game. Finally, we told children to never give away personal information such as account details, address and your second name.

Also we spoke to the children about Privacy Settings on games and that you should always have your settings on private. Moreover, we talked about not giving any personal information away such as your name, address, phone number, age, email, school and any passwords.  Finally, we asked the children to tell us what type of games they play and we also asked them questions to test how well they know how to be safe online.
