Online Safety

Online safety at Fleecefield

The internet can be a world of fun for children. A place where they can learn, explore and express their  creativity. However, this does not come without risks. At Fleecefield, we give our children the tools that they need to be able to use the internet in a productive, responsible and safe way.

Digital Ambassadors 

Please read below a message from our Digital Ambassadors team:

We are a team of students dedicated to promoting internet safety  and the use of technology here at Fleecefield Primary School. We are trained to use technology effectively and provide support to both teachers and students in integrating technology into our school routines.

We meet regularly to undertake tasks such as:

  • Discuss current updates in the world of technology

  • Create surveys to find out about any concerns that our peers have about online safety

  • Support teachers with troubleshooting during computing lessons

  • Plan and deliver assemblies

  • Organise competitions

  • Run our lunchtime Coding club

We believe that our role as Digital Ambassadors is becoming increasingly important as technology continues to play a larger role in our education and wider life.
