PACT Online Safety Day - Tuesday 28th June 2016

As you may be aware, Tuesday 28th June is a PACT Online Safety Day.

This time, we will be running a competition open to all children across the trust. As you know, we currently have Hector the dolphin which is a child-activated safety button. Hector the Dolphin has been keeping children safe online for many many years but sadly it is time for him to retire and for someone new to take his place.

We thought it would be great if the children could design their own character to be a child-led safety button, along with a name and some additional information, such as likes/dislikes.

The winner from each school will then have their design turned into a real computer program which will run on all of the computers in school for the next 12 months. If successful, we will then look to run this competition again next year.

The closing date for entries will be Monday 4th July.

Please find below two posters which explain the competition to children.

Classes will all be asked to look at their entries and nominate three to be put forward as their final 'class entries'.

The winners will then be chosen by our Online Safety Little Leaders and announced in due course.

We look forward to seeing some amazing designs for our new PACT Safety Button.

Many thanks,

The Online Safety Team
