Published: 28th February 2019
Welcome to the February edition of our monthly achievements and updates blog. Here we congratulate schools who have completed their training, share updates from the Childnet team and good news stories from Digital Leaders schools.
Digital Leaders School visits
The Digital Leaders team were lucky enough to visit two Digital Leaders schools this month.
Danielle visited Kings Ely Junior School to discuss and prepare with them for our next Regional event which is taking place at their school on Wednesday 20th March. Thank you to Kings Ely’s Digital Leaders and Mr Everest for their hospitality, Danielle had a wonderful day! Please do get in touch at [email protected] for more information if you are a Digital Leaders school and are interested in attending the regional event.
Siobhan and Charlotte had the pleasure of visiting Digital Leaders at Sawtry Village Academy in Cambridgeshire. They had a brilliant time discussing lots of topics with the Digital Leaders including how they are helping other students with online safety issues and how they have been involved in advising parents about how to support their children online at parents’ evenings. Thank you to the fantastic Digital Leaders who were very enthusiastic and their wonderful teacher, Mrs Boyles, for welcoming us. Watch out for a blog post about the visit coming soon.
Safer Internet Day 2019
Thank you and a huge well done to all of the Digital Leaders teams who were involved in activities for Safer Internet Day 2019 on 5th February. We are so impressed by all of the hard work that was put into celebrating the day all over the UK. It was amazing to see all the different ways that Digital Leaders spread awareness around this year’s theme of consent online.
Please see our blog here about how some Digital Leaders were involved in the Safer Internet Day event in London. A special thank you to Israa and Will who played important parts in the day and did such a great job, impressing the audience with their knowledge and enthusiasm for this year’s theme of “Our internet, our choice: Understanding consent in a digital world.”
Please see our blog here highlighting creative ways that some Digital Leaders teams told us they celebrated Safer Internet 2019 in their schools.

Excellent stuff, Northwood Park Primary School, De Bohun Primary School and Little Chalfont Primary School Digital Leaders!
We spotted that the work of your Digital Leaders is mentioned on your school websites! We often see great online safety pages on school websites and think they are a fantastic way to point parents in the direction of useful resources. School websites are a great opportunity to get Digital Leaders involved in the whole-school approach to online safety and an efficient way to let parents know what the Digital Leaders are involved in within school. To get some inspiration for your school to showcase your Digital Leaders teams on your websites, please see their sites here:
