Earlier this year BoltonSICT ran an Esafety competition for all Bolton Primary Schools.
With the changes to the curriculum and the raised importance of children learning how to stay safe on-line. We felt that by encouraging schools to get involved with Safer Internet Day or SID2015 this was an ideal opportunity to raise the awareness and importance of safeguarding and on-line learning.
Our overall winners were Gaskell Primary & Eagley Juniors – part of their prize was a trip to our training centre for a fun packed day of Computer Science.
Here are the highlights of Gaskell’ trip.
Eagley Juniors trip highlights will follow later in the term !

Bolton Schools ICT Unit recently ran an Esafety Competition for all Bolton Primary Schools linked to Safer Internet Day 2015.
Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre in February of each year to promote the safe and responsible use of online technology and mobile phones for children and young people.
Safer Internet Day 2015 was on Tuesday 10th February 2015, with the theme ‘Let’s create a better internet together’, offering the opportunity to focus on both the creative and positive things that children and young people are doing online, as well as the role that we all play in helping to create a better internet.
This is the first inter-school competition that Bolton Schools ICT unit has organised for schools. It was felt that with changes in the new computing curriculum and the access children have to the internet and social media this was the ideal opportunity to raise the awareness and importance of safeguarding and esafety learning.
Schools entries could take the form of any format – video, collage, posters or even computer games. Bolton Schools ICT unit was astounded with the quality and quantity of entries, clearly schools have taken this opportunity to raise the esafety learning in their schools and are now looking to make this an annual event.
Thank you and well done to the schools that submitted entries, to see the highlights and the list of winners, click on the image below.

Busy day at our training centre – Esafety Day .
The morning focus was CEOP Esafety training. In the afternoon an app quiz, a presentation by a school who recently attended the ‘Making Children Safer Online Conference ran by Jim Gamble & Ineqe Group – very thought provoking fact and figures – how various agencies support our young people when online.
We also looked at resources for Bolton schools and discussed what happens next.
If you attended this share your comments following this day.
