Year 6: Project 4 - Computing / PSHE: Online Safety

Project 4 - Computing / PSHE: Online Safety


The use of social media for under 16's is a hotly debated issue throughout various society. Some say it's useful for communication and necessary in the 21st century; others believe that young people do not use it responsibly and so it leads to further problems. 


This week, we want you to write a balanced argument considering both points of view fairly. Take some time to look at the videos and articles below as well as your own research. 


Remember that if you feel worried about anything that is happening online, you should speak to a trusted adult, press the CEOP button or you can also call ChildLine anonymously 0800 1111.

Take a look at some of the resources on our school's website about online safety. You can learn how to block and report on different platforms and the important things to remember when using the internet.
