A Visit from Merseyside Police

Youth Engagement Constable, Philip Seddon, along with his colleague, Gill Bell, visited Upper Key Stage 2 again today to discuss the importance of staying safe online.

The officers from Merseyside Police have already been in twice this term. They initially came into school to meet with members of our Digital Council and introduce themselves to Years 5 and 6. Then, they visited each Year 6 class on Safer Internet Day to discuss the dangers of sharing content - especially images - online. 

Today, they had similar conversations with Year 5. They discussed different social media, including what happens when you install an app and accept the terms and conditions, as well as the reasons why there are age restrictions for some of these apps. Philip and Gill also talked about gaming and how PEGI ratings are given. 

Following the discussions, each class had participated in a Circle Time with their class teacher. From the number of questions and comments the children had, it was clear that the children had taken the words of Merseyside Police on board!
