Welcome aboard Michael, Sam, Jayden, Dylan, Tyler and Joseph!
They have already been very busy discussing ideas for the upcoming year. They are in the process of developing an in-school club for KS1 to show them games that will develop their computing skills away from online platforms. They are enthusiastic about online safety and looking at different ways to show other children how to stay safe online. Updates will be posted here regularly alongside online safety advice.

#WakeupWednesday: Managing devices and anxiety
According to recent figures, a third of 5 to 7-year-olds in the UK have at least one social media profile; 69% of 8 to 11-year-olds play games online; and a whopping 97% of 12 to 15-year-olds use messaging apps or sites. Whichever way one slices it, digital devices are an increasingly integral part of how today’s young people live their lives.
There are many positive aspects to this, of course, but what’s also true is that the lure of their screens and the frequently brutal law of the online jungle can create a huge amount of additional stress for youngsters. This week’s #WakeUpWednesday guide has some practical advice on how parents and carers can help their child to manage the pressures of living online.
