Durrington All Saints Infant School had a visit from BBC Wiltshire today; the radio station wanted to hear all about Safer Internet Day and what the staff and children were doing to recognise this global event.
Mrs Scott the school’s ICT lead was interviewed by Karen Gardner, BBC Wiltshire’s roving reporter.
Mrs Scott explained; “Although today is a special day highlighting the need for Internet safety, at Durrington we remember internet safety every day. It’s important to continually keep ourselves, as teachers and our pupils internet savvy.
“The digital world moves at such a pace it’s our responsibility to keep-up, keep our pupils safe and give them the skills that allow them to flourish in an increasingly digital world.”
Karen interviewed six Year 2 pupils; the children sang her their special Internet safety song, and answered her questions about how they used the Internet at school and at home, and what to do if they came across something online that they didn’t like.
Karen tweeted after the event saying; “ What lively, sparky children. Taught me lots about Internet safety. Great fun too.”
