We want to make you aware of a LIVE assembly we have organised for our pupils (both those in school and at home) linked to the importance of online safety. The assembly will take place on Thursday 9th July at 2pm and will be linked to ‘Be Internet Legends’, an online safety programme fully funded by Google.
‘Be Internet Legends’ is a multifaceted program developed by Google and Parent Zone to teach children the skills they need to be safe and confident online. The live assembly is developed by Google and Parent Zone’s expert teams and live-streamed from their studio by experienced presenters. The assembly is a bespoke session and aims to be an interactive educational adventure through the world of ‘Be Internet Legends’. The session will be presented live so that pupils at home and school can both get involved – and take part in the fun!
The platform used to live stream the assembly on is Youtube. The developers of the assembly will send us a link prior to the scheduled date, which we will forward on to parents/carers by email.
The assembly is designed for Key Stage 2 students; however, it is entirely up to you if you would like your child to take part – the more pupils the better! This is a chance to involve the whole school community.
Many thanks for your continued support,
Mr Fidment and Miss Garratt

Here are a few more computing activities that you could do at home. Why not get all the family involved?
With many children having been home schooled for over a month now, we are aware that Internet Safety may not be at the forefront of their minds.
Therefore, Shooting Stars Entertainment have created an Internet Safety Video, specifically for Primary aged children, which they are giving to us, completely free!
With schools closed and tens of millions of students at home, Code.org have launched Code Break — a live, weekly interactive classroom where their team will teach your children at home while school is closed, and a weekly challenge to engage students of all abilities, even those without computers.
