Special Edition

"Together for a better internet"
The Agenci came to speak to Beaumont Primary Academy children today, as part of their Safer Internet Day activities.
The Agenci is a consultancy business that specialises in IT security and GDPR. Students were fully engaged in listening about how they can create a safer and better internet.
A big thank you to Steve Lees, South Pennine Academies trustee, for organising this fantastic opportunity.

#RightToBeSafe #EngagedCommunity
Orchard Primary Academy children were involved in engaging assemblies today, as part of their Safer Internet Day activities. Leaders are driven to make sure their children understand how to keep themselves safe in all scenarios.

#SaferCommunity #EngagedCommunity
Orchard Year 4 have been engaged in some really meaningful conversations and discussions around how to stay safe online.

Year 4 children used their writing skills to develop their own instructions on how to stay safe, supporting their work around Safer Internet Day.

Orchard Year 6 have been using Safer Internet Day as a stimulus for an infomration text all about 'Me v Me'.

Children were taught to think about the image they often portray of themselves online, and how it is not always the real image.  Children left with the inspiring thought to use the internet to create the best version of themselves.

#CreativeCurriculum #BeYourself
Orchard reception class have been learning how to 'Keep Safe' when using the internet.  They have made some very big decisions about what to do when they have a concern.

They decided to always ask a grown up, like their parents or a teacher, if they need help or don't feel safe.

Willowpark Primary Academy children from across Key Stage 1 and 2, took part in special assemblies all about internet safety and staying safe online.  Children then followed this up in class, through their curriculum work, and signed a whole school pledge to keeping safe online.

Woodlands Primary Academy children have been involved in classroom activities all about internet safety and staying safe online.

Children have been working on what is true and false around internet safety.  In class they worked together to sort statements into what is ok and what is not ok, in relation to to keeping safe online.

Waterhead Academy students had been involved in developing Safety Awarness Campaigns, as part of their work around Internet Safety and their academy culture and expectations.  Year 7 students are pictured showing off their entries for the House Cup Competition.

Students at Moor End Academy had also been involved in their own activities, attending workshops focused heavily on the need to stay internet safe, creating a positive culture of online activities.

"Healthy: Inside and Out"
Congratulations to Orchard Primary Academy, Beaumont Primary Academy, Willowpark Primary Academy and Woodlands Primar Academy who achieved their Mental Health Awards this term, for their approach to Mental Health in their Academy.  Good luck to Greenacres Primary Academy who are due to complete their assessment towards the award this month.  Moor End Academy, Waterhead Academy and Park Lane Academy will not complete until the summer, but are also on track to achieve the award and support our committment to Mental Health.

Woodlands Primary Academy children have been practising some mindfulness techniques as part of Children's Mental Health Week activities.

They tried Yoga before lunch and found it made them very relaxed and calm.

Greenacres Primary Academy Radio Station - 6th Feb - Mental Health
Waterhead Academy students have been embracing the time to talk campaign.  Built into their focus around Mental Health, students setup oppurtunities to 'have a chat' over tea and biscuits and provided no pressure space for people to talk.

Moor End Academy also enjoyed an opportunity to sit and talk.  The Academy put on free tea and toast for staff, providing some quality time for them to take a break and catch-up.  Moor End are now hoping to build on this, providing more time for staff to engage and share with each other, in no pressure groups.
