In class three pupils were told in the morning that they were going to play a game and on the post-it on their desk, they needed to write down the name of their pet, their favourite colour, their favourite sport and the names of their parents. This they obediently did. The 'game' was to then go and give their personal details to other people around school to see if they could guess who it belonged to. Towards the end of the day, once asked if Mrs Cockram could take the details given and share them with other Heads, the pupils said no that they did not want their personal information going out of school and they did not give their permission.
People often appear really nice on the internet, and many are, but they are strangers, just because we have shared a game and they have told us their name does not mean that we know them. We do not give strangers our details in real life so do not do it on the internet. We do not know what they plan to do with our information - keep it safe - don't tell!
E-safety have completed their second mission
School Council Report Spring Term 1 E-Safety
Dear Mission Control
The internet safety topic was very successful. We all took part in achieving this. Now the school understands how to stay safe on the internet. The school took part in every activity we did and had fun whilst learning. The school council learnt new things too. The questionnaire we sent out was about what pupils thought they could share online. The results were that most children understood. I think we need to make children more aware of the age limit for social media. We will put the findings below of how many people have social media in each year group:
Year one - 1
Year two - 0
Year three - 5
Year four - 4
Year five - 3
Year six – 6

The E-safety team have completed their first mission...
Dear Mission Control,
We have completed everything for the YouTube awareness activity. The pupils understand the dangers of YouTube which is great news. When we started mission control we sent out questionnaires which helped the students, School council made the questionnaires.
We also wrote scripts for the assembly which then made a great impact on the other children in the assembly as we now knew what we were going to say. We also noticed that the children were participating in all the questions as productively as possible. Also the children were giving good quality answers and putting their hand up if they a question that needed to be answered.
We also made a great film which helped students understand about internet safety, also the parents learnt things and they understood the rules, as most students thought that the rules of YouTube was that you had to be 8 to 10 years old to make a YouTube video which is not in the policy for YouTube. This helped them understand more which was a great help to this school. The whole School Council are glad that was successful.
We started the Mission Control project because we thought it would help the school and it definitely has. We are going to do many more Mission Control activities just like this. The whole School Council is glad that this was a success. We found this extremely fun to take part in this project; this really shows how children can work together as one!
Yours sincerely, School Council/ Gipsey Bridge Academy.
This year we are working collaboratively with schools in Kyra East on E-Safety. Pupils are gathering together with Internet Safety Specialists, exploring the skills and knowledge needed to keep us safe on the internet. The E-Safety Ambassadors are then tasked with disseminating this information to the rest of the school.
We cannot wrap our children in bubble wrap; we need to equip them with the skills needed to keep themselves safe.
The group will meet again at Spilsby Academy in October 2017.
