As part of the ongoing SAFE initiative, Smoothwall continues to spread the message of the importance of online safety in schools.
Earlier this week, Smoothwall kicked off their SAFE Roadshow with a two day event in Leeds aimed at teaching pupils, teachers and parents about the importance of online safety and the ongoing risks around cyber security, online gaming and social media.
In collaboration with ICT4Leeds and Leeds City Council, Smoothwall visited Shakespeare Primary School to host workshops aimed at educating their year 4, 5 and 6 pupils about the importance of staying safe online and how to use the internet responsibly.
Starting out with an all group assembly, sessions took place throughout the day with a focus on tackling topics such as stranger danger, online gaming, phone usage and in particular social media apps, including Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, Musically and Roblox. These were hugely popular with the pupils, with the majority (approximately 90%) admitting to using at least one of the apps themselves, even though they are underage.
