Digital Leaders & E-Safety @ Parochial
What are 'Digital Leaders'?
The team is made up of passionate and dedicated children from across KS2. Their aim is to take a leading role in the delivery and development of E-Safety and the computing curriculum throughout the school.
Our Digital Leaders also support our staff, pupils and families in all things computing. So far this year they have supported with the delivery of an E-Safety Parent Workshop, developed a brand new E-Safety display with practical hints and tips for students as well as supporting our classroom teachers and support staff in the technical side of our Purple Mash Computing Curriculum.

If it is something you and your grown-up think needs reporting, we have linked the ReportHarmfulContent.com website in the contents above. To access the website, please click 'more' from any page on our school website and you will be directed straight there.
