Advice on internet safety for Holbeach Primary Academy and Holbeach Bank Academy pupils
Pupils at Holbeach Primary Academy have been given advice on how to stay safe while using the internet,
PC Tim Newell (pictured left), co-ordinator of Lincolnshire Mini-Police, spent time with Year 5 and 6 pupils as part of National Online Safety Day.
Holbeach Bank Academy pupils were also part of the workshop and Nicola Kenyon, executive vice principal for both schools, said: "The pupils explored different aspects around online safety, including how to keep safe. what to do if they encounter a problem or any images that are inappropriate and the people who they should speak to for help.
"The pupils learned about the use of apps, how to ensure that they are safe accessing and using them and the logos attached to them.
"There was also advice on how to ensure their settings are private, the ages attached to some settings and why this is important.
"As part of the workshop, the children used large pieces of paper to discuss and share ideas, an aspect of the day which they enjoyed.
"Both schools would like to thank PC Newell for the time he was able to give to us as the children and teaching staff thoroughly enjoyed the day and found it extremely valuable in our growing digital world."
