P6/7 Internet Safety with PC Cook

Today P6/7 had PC Cook in to talk about internet safety. We discussed going online, how we use the internet and some of the risks. We watched a video based on a real life story about using the internet. We discussed the risks the boy in the video took, and what the legal implications would be. We were surprised at some of the legal ages for using social media – we didn’t know you had to be 16 to have WhatsApp!

PC Cook gave us an important piece of advice to follow for any device. He recommended that no one should have any devices in their bedroom. His reasoning is that anyone of any age is more likely to break the rules behind closed doors – which we all agreed was true!
