We had assemblies and also followed up with activities around positive conversations and relationships online. We did some pupil voice questionnaires to find out what their favourite things are to do online and there were some useful bits of feedback that we feel parents should be aware of. For further advice please see our E Safety Page.

Here are the assembly presentations:

3-7 year olds

7-11 year olds

Here is the discussion of our Pupil Voice Questionnaire with Children in Oxwich.
