Online Safety Competition Winner

Last month, many of our children entered the Bolton Schools ICT Online Safety Competition. 

Schools from all over Bolton entered, but there could only be three winners – and Oxford Grove was one of them!

Well done to Saarah in Year 6 for her amazing online safety story! Her class will be enjoying a STEM engineering workshop with Mrs Temel next half term.

Safer Internet Day 2016 Parent Workshop

Today, we have hosted our Safer Internet Day 2016 parent workshop!

We discussed the different risks that could be posed to children, looking at content, conduct, contact and commercialism.

We also looked at the CEOP button as a way of reporting serious online safety issues.

Another resource featured in our workshop was the Know It All guide for parents and carers from Childnet. Click the picture below to access this guide.

Then we all had plenty of time to try out the resources, and the Y6 and Y5 Digital Leaders were on hand to support.

Thank you so much to everybody who came, and we hope you found our workshop useful.
