As part of this curriculum, we are looking at pupils’ safety online and how they can protect themselves when using social media. On Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th February 2024, pupils experienced a fantastic performance and interactive assembly promoting pupils’ safety online, security settings and the dangers of artificial intelligence and the creation of false online profiles and enhanced characters. They were also educated on the laws surrounding taking inappropriate photographs, sending to others and the distribution without consent.

Consent was a topic covered in the performance and the right of pupils to say no, but also the option to withdraw consent at any time. The final section of the performance focused on algorithms and how social media and the internet focuses on their searches and how this can be a concern where similar images and posts creating an echo chamber where they are at times surrounded by harmful views.

Pupils were given strategies to stay safe and protect themselves online. Pupils were reminded that “We are a Telling School” and to report any concerns or to ask any questions to staff members in school including form tutors, teaching staff, Head of House and Leadership.
