Our Online Safety Group 2017/18 has been formed! We are Ruby, Rory, William, Phoebe, Evelyn, Chloe, Miss Bunce and Mrs Thompson. We meet every other Wednesday to discuss online safety issues. This month we are looking at different apps such as Music.ly, Live.ly, Snapchat and Instagram. We want to find out how they are used and some of the risks that could be involved.
