Internet Safety Week

This week our Main School Assemblies have focussed on the hugely important topic of internet safety. In line with this year’s theme of All Fun and Games but also exploring how to have respectful relationships online, Assistant Headteacher Ms Knowles has made us all think very carefully about our all-important digital footprint which can affect the rest of our lives and also needing to always think before posting.

At Bushey Meads School our Mantra of ‘Having a Mind to be Kind’ is something we encourage at all times and especially when we are online. As parents and carers do continue to play your part in monitoring online activities and remind your children about these important messages that Ms Knowles shared this week
