Virtual assembly helps Branfil students stay safe online

Today I joined a livestream assembly to help students of Branfil Primary in Upminster become Internet Legends by staying safe online.

To make the most of the internet, children need to make smart decisions. Be Internet Legends, a programme run by Parent Zone and Google for our local primary schools, empowers younger children to use the web safely and wisely so they can be confident explorers of the online world.

The assemblies are part of a wider campaign offering primary school teachers across the UK the chance to download and be virtually trained on a free PSHE Association-accredited curriculum pack and a new teaching module on digital wellbeing. So far the assemblies have reached over a million children across the UK and I am delighted that the pupils of Branfil are now among this number so that parents and children can become more confident that the internet can be used safely. 

The resources from this assembly are available to view together with more information about Be Internet Legends here
