Staying safe online
In preparation for moving to secondary school, why not have a go at entering The Childnet Film Competition which invites young people aged 7-18 to create a 2 minute online safety film to inspire their peers to create a safe, supportive and fun online world around the theme ‘We want an internet where we’re free to...’. Within your video you could specifically aim the video at Y6 children who are making the step up to secondary school. You could do this by: highlighting the need to stay in touch with friends safely who move to other secondary schools and by Discussing how Y6 children could safely stay in contact with one other and offer support. The entries that make into the final shortlist will be judged by a prestigious panel made up of representatives from BAFTA, the BBC, the British Board of Film Classification, the BFI, Disney and the Motion Picture Association. The young people who create winning films and
storyboards will receive great filmmaking and creative prizes for their school or youth group. Whether used at school or as a home learning project, the competition is a great way of exploring important internet safety messages with young people of all ages.
