On Tuesday 5th February 2019, schools across the country celebrated Safer Internet Day. Because of their commitment to e-safety, The Flying Bull Academy instead decided to make Safer Internet Day into an entire week. The Digital Leader team had been hard at work for the last few weeks planning and preparing lessons, which they delivered throughout last week to every class in the academy.
This year the aim was to look at the concept of permission and consent. With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May of last year, control of personal data and data privacy is more important than ever. Because of this, the team decided they wanted to educate pupils about the importance of keeping personal data secure and safe. They also looked at the need to ensure pupils respect the rights and feelings of their friends and family.
