Digital leaders

Introducing our digital leaders...

This Year, we have signed up to the Childnet Digital Leader programme. We can't wait to get started.


"The Childnet Digital Leaders Programme is a youth leadership training programme empowering young people to educate their peers about online safety.

Childnet is a leading online safety charity with a mission to make the internet a great and safe place for children and young people. We are the only online safety charity in the UK delivering an online peer-to-peer training programme that directly helps education settings embed a comprehensive approach to online safety.

Groups of Digital Leaders complete training on an interactive, informative and fun gamified platform. They work through online modules, equipping them with the skills they need to go on to educate and support their peers."

We wanted to find out more about online safety in our school. First, we filled in a questionnaire about ourselves. Then we went back to our classes to find out more about how safe our class are online.


Darcylea found out that 24 people in her class use laptops at home or in school.


Grace found out that 25 people in her class like to use the Internet to play games. 


Ruby found out that 3C like to watch TV using the Internet like Netflix or Youtube.


Emilia found out that 21 people in her class like to use websites to watch vides like Youtube. 


Teighan found out that when children in her class go online, 10 of them stay online for 3 hours or more!


Ruby in 4R found out that 11 people in her class go online every night!


We were very surprised that so many people use the Internet so we want to make sure they do it safely!
