Primary School commended for approach to digital safety

Stourbridge MP, Suzanne Webb has visited a local primary school to talk pupils about how they keep safe online.

Suzanne went to St James's CofE Primary School in Kingsway on Friday to meet its digital leaders. They are pupils who make sure the internet and computers are used safely and looked after properly.

Suzanne also took part in a Q&A session on how she became an MP, what she likes about the job and also she was asked about online gaming.

The school takes the online world seriously and won an award for online safety in September. Suzanne said:

“It was a little daunting to be met with such tech savvy digital natives who are completely at ease in the online world but also very aware of its dangers.

“I applaud this school for its focus on this part of the curriculum and how important it is to use the internet safely and responsibly.

“As always, I enjoyed the Q&A session where I am always in awe of the brilliant questions I get asked. However, I will confess to finding the question about the origins of online gaming a tough one!

“Thank you to the digital leaders and staff for allowing me to visit. I love going to our brilliant local schools and this was no exception.”

Headteacher Natalie Sefton added: “Our digital leaders were thrilled with the opportunity to share all of the good practice that they have helped to develop at St James's in regard to staying safe online.

"They were able to demonstrate its importance and were very proud to share our Online Safety mark.”
