Hello, we are the new E-Safety Ambassadors for our school. We are a group of 11 pupils across Key Stage 2 and it is our responsibility to inform you of what’s hot in the world of E-safety.
It is our job to:
- Help others learn how to be safer online
- Talk to children across the school about any e-safety concerns that they might have
- Learn how to use new technologies, apps and software
- Support teachers in using new technologies, apps and software in lessons
- Suggest improvements to the ICT around school
- Plan and deliver online safety assemblies
- Keep parents and Governors up to date with current e-safety topics
- Promote Safer Internet Day and organise whole school activities
During the first few weeks of the new school year (2018-2019), our existing e-safety ambassadors (Lily and Millie, both in Year 6) helped with the process of electing new e-safety ambassadors. All children in Years 3 – 6 were invited to apply for the position. They were asked to write a letter, explaining why they wanted to be an e-safety ambassador. Lily and Millie had a tough job, reading through all the fantastic letters. They eventually elected the following children:
Jacob D (Year 3)
Charlie (Year 4)
Sasha (Year 4)
Dylan (Year 4)
Evie S (Year 5)
Daisy H (Year 5)
Eleanor A (Year 5)
Maisie B (Year 6)
Claire B (Year 6)
Congratulations to our new e-safety ambassadors!

Congratulations to Holiday, in year 4, who has joined the e-safety ambassador team this term.
The e-safety ambassadors at Holy Trinity have found a new campaign regarding cyber bullying online. This was created by Prince William; called Stop Speak Support. Here is the advice that you should follow if you are being bullied online.
STOP: if you see bullying or are being bullied online STOP and do not reply to the bully or make fun of him/her.
SPEAK: SPEAK to an adult straight away about what you have seen online.
SUPPORT: If you see someone else being bullied SUPPORT them and tell an adult that they are being bullied.
This campaign will help many people be safer online so they will not get hurt or offended in anyway. If you see or hear something you think is inappropriate tell an adult/carer at home before it gets worse.

Some helpful reminders to help you remain ‘Webwise’
- Put your privacy settings as high as possible
- Check your settings
- Make sure you check what apps and websites that your child wants to go on because you don’t know what is on there
- Don’t give out your password
- Don’t share your full name
- Don’t show personal pictures or videos
Question: Your friends or older siblings say Facebook is fun. How old do you have to be to have a Facebook account?
Response: 48% of children across Key Stage 2 were unable to answer this question correctly.
What we have done to improve: We have since informed children and staff of the correct answer (13 Years Old), as part of our e-safety presentation.
As part of Safe Internet Day in February, all pupils completed a survey relating to keeping safe on the internet. The results have now been analysed. The purpose of this section is to inform you of:
- What we found
- What we have done as a result
- What everyone can do to help themselves remain safe on the internet
- Keeping up to date with current practice
Internet safety rules
Question: At school there are lots of rules about using computers and the internet. Do you know what they are and do you understand them?
What we have done to improve:
Since 49% were unable to respond to this question with ‘yes’, we have since ensured that every classroom displays a list of our internet safety rules. Children are also reminded of these during computing sessions and when using laptops during other lessons.
