    24 March 2020
    Dear parents/carers, We hope you are all keeping safe and well. Please ensure that your children logon and register their attendance either via DB Primary (Early Years) and Google classroom for Years 1-6. Please note that teachers and support staff will be monitoring pupils’ online activity each day to ensure that they are completing set tasks. If a child is not accessing or completing tasks, you will be notified by the school via a text message. It is really important that you encourage your child to engage in their home learning activities while they are away from school as it will help them to maintain a strong learning focus at this crucial time of the year. We appreciate that this is a very challenging time, not only for you and your families but for the country as a whole. We find ourselves in a set of very precarious and unique circumstances but, as a school and teaching staff, we will be doing our best to ensure that we provide you with the best educational service we can. We will be updating the website as more information becomes available and would ask that you regularly check the school website so that you are aware of any updates. This will be the single source of information during the closure period. If you have any questions or concerns which need to be addressed urgently, you can always email the school and these will be passed onto the relevant member of staff. Please can these be of an important nature rather than in relation to closure or opening as this will be communicated via the websites. Best wishes.

    Esafety For Children
    A new game 'Band Runner' is a fun interactive game that helps 8-10 year olds learn how to stay safe from risks they might encounter online. Featuring characters and safety messages from the Thinkuknow Play Like Share films, Band Runner is a fun game that puts children’s knowledge about online safety to the test by asking them to help characters make safe choices. Players can choose to play the game as characters Ellie or Sam who use their guitars to eliminate all obstacles in their path as they run through school in order to make it to their next gig. If players miss a jump or take a tumble they then need to help Alfie solve an online safety dilemma to be able to continue play. As players pass to the next level, the running gets faster! The Band Runner game can be found on our informative 8-10's website which also provides clear and practical safety advice under the following headings: Play – Playing games online Like – Being kind to others online Share – Sharing videos and photos online Chat – Talking to others online Lock – Keeping information private Explore – Exploring the internet https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/8_10/ The website also has a ‘Worried about something’ section offering advice and support to children who are feeling worried, scared or upset about something which has happened online.

    Esafety update: Gaming: What parents and carers need to know
    As with any form of technology or online space, adult offenders can use gaming platforms to target children and build relationships with them. It is important to know the different elements of gaming and how they can be used by offenders, and what you can do to support your child whilst gaming. Chat functions in games do differ however there are ways that you can support your child to stay safe if they chat whilst gamin Have ongoing conversations with your child about who they are talking to online. Discuss whether they know them in real life and what they share with them. Take time to explore games with your children. Ask them to show you what they like about the game and take an interest. Speak with them about making their profile private if possible and talk with them about information that is safe to share e.g. nicknames as opposed to full names. It is important to be aware of the chat platforms your child is using. Ask your child about what they would do if someone within a game asked to talk to them in private whether that’s on another platform or within the game. Help your child to identify this warning sign and explain what they can do can help them to keep safe. All young people need support to make safe decisions online. It is recommended that primary aged children remain under adult supervision whilst gaming, for example ensuring an adult is within earshot of conversations and able to see any chat taking place. If you are worried that a child is being groomed in a game, or on any other online platform you should seek support. You can contact your local police or report to CEOP. If you believe a child is in immediate danger call the police on 999. If you would like to talk to a professional about any other online concerns, please call the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000. For more information you can visit the 'Think You Know site'. https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/articles/gaming/
