Celebrating cyber safety in Kidsgrove


Pupils at Kidsgrove Primary School have been praised by the Assistant Chief Police Commissioner for their superb online safety.

The school, which is part of the Shaw Education Trust, held a competition in collaboration with Affinity Shopping Centre to raise awareness of online safety within the community.

Pupils were tasked with developing a short drama based on keeping safe online, as well as designing posters to raise awareness of key online issues. 

Kelly Pope, Head of School at Kidsgrove Primary, said: “We are so proud of all our pupils – there were some truly outstanding entries with great safety tips.”

The winning poster designs will now be displayed around the Affinity Shopping Centre, providing tips on how to stay safe in the digital world.

Pupils efforts in promoting cyber safety were applauded by Jenny Sims, the Assistant Chief Police Commissioner, during a recent visit to Kidsgrove, with the Commissioner being impressed by pupils knowledge and understanding of the issue.

Miss Pope commented: “Raising awareness of how to stay safe online is vital in modern society and it is great that our pupils have been able to contribute towards doing so.”
