Amy Lockwood, Education Manager at Childnet International, spent the day with us at King’s Ely Junior yesterday (March 13th).

Dan Everest, our Head of Key Stage 2, Computing and Digital Innovation, arranged Amy’s visit as part of our ongoing partnership with the charity and its fantastic ‘Digital Leaders’ programme.

Childnet works directly with children aged 3-18, as well as parents, carers, teachers and professionals, to help make the internet a positive and safe place to be.

Amy gave bespoke presentations about online safety and responsible digital practice to pupils in Year 3 through to Year 8, as well as delivering a session for King’s Ely Junior parents in the evening.

For our Key Stage 2 pupils, Amy covered areas including online bullying, managing digital wellbeing, keeping personal information private, and what you should do if you are contacted by someone who you do not know.

For our Years 7 and 8 students, Amy discussed topics including managing large group chats, digital wellbeing, reporting inappropriate content or contact, consent and sharing, and the law around creating and/or sending nude images.

For our parents and carers, Amy explored and provided practical tips around three different areas of online risk – what children may be doing online, what children may be seeing online, and who children may be speaking to online.

Amy had a catch-up with our Digital Leaders and Mr Everest invited local school representatives to come along too. We were delighted to welcome Leah Mason from Ely St Mary’s CofE Junior School and Ruth Garbutt from Sutton CE Primary School.

Amy joined the Childnet team in November 2017. She is a qualified teacher who taught Key Stage 2 in Ely after completing her PGCE at the University of Cambridge. Thank you for sharing so much knowledge with us Amy!
