As part of our Computing and PHSE learning Key Stage 2 children will take part in a live e-safety assembly hosted by Google and Parent Zone’s Be Internet Legends program.
The assembly will be watched in school via a child safe link on YouTube. Normally, YouTube recommends that children access the site from the age of 13 – but because this video is marked as ‘Made for Kids’, chat will be automatically disabled. Your child won’t be able to make or see comments, or communicate directly with anyone. They won’t need to create an account or download any additional software.
We hope you will join us too. Parents can access and watch the assembly via the following link - https://youtu.be/J4iLZBWYQSw
