Hello, we are your Year 5 and 6 Digital Leaders. Our names are Olivia, Reed, Eliyah and Beth (Year 5) and George, Betsy, Charlie, Romey (Year 6). Our role around school is to keep people safe online, but not only children- staff as well. We also teach parents how to keep their children safe online. We raise awareness around school on why too much screen time can affect your mental and physical health and what damage it can do. We will help younger students with their computing lessons. We actively talk to students through assemblies about risks and keeping safe. Remember STAY SAFE ONLINE!
See below for more photographs of what we have been up to!

Challenge 1 and 2
Our first job was to recruit Year 5 Digital Leaders. We made up questions, interviewed those interested and decided on four new Digital Leaders to join the current Year 6 ones.
Our Digital Leaders this year are Romey, Charlie, George and Betsy (Year 6) and Reed, Eliyah, Olivia and Beth (Year 5).
We then prepared and presented an assembly to the whole school reminding them of our role in school. We organised a competition to help reduce screen time in school, and we gave out prizes for the best posters encouraging activities away from the screen.
We created posters to put up around school to promote us as digital leaders, and also put up the winning screen time posters. We also updated our display board in school.
We often go into Key Stage 1 classes to help children log in and read online safety stories. We also organise the laptop and ipad trolleys in school.
