Police discuss online safety with pupils during 'Safer Internet Day'

Staff at St John's Primary Junior School in Highbridge worked with local police on Tuesday (9th February) to raise awareness of online safety as they marked 'Safer Internet Day'.

Burnham PCSOs Claire Chambers and Gill Bawler visited the school and spoke with pupils in year 6, showing them a presentation designed to increase their awareness of the dangers of the Internet.

Claire told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The presentation was based around content from the Thinkuknow.co.uk website, which teaches young people how to stay in control online and how to report any issues they face."

"The event was held on Safer Internet Day, an initiative that sees events taking place across Europe – encouraging internet users of all ages to think about how they are using the internet and what they can do to stay safe."

Research by Ofcom shows that 78% of 5-7 year olds are now using the internet, so learning about online safety is as integral as learning to cross the road.
