Pupils learn online safety

LESSONS in keeping safe online were learned by children at a Bognor Regis school.

 

The training session for Edward Bryant School pupils was arranged by Google as part of a UK-wide initiative to teach children about how to use the internet.

 

The scheme, called Be Internet Legends, tackled some of the most challenging issues that families face in the digital world.

 

These include self-esteem, body image, mental health and extremism.

 

Nick Gibb, MP for Bognor Regis and Littlehampton, attended the assembly.

 

He said: “I was delighted to see local children learn the skills they need to explore the opportunities of the internet safely.

 

“It is so important that we equip children in all primary schools with digital skills and I am pleased that Google are becoming involved in this important issue.”

 

The assembly covered five main aspects of internet awareness that are important for 7-11-year-olds.

 

It raised the importance of being aware of what is shared online and talking to adults about any problems or worries they have that come from being online.
