Safer Internet Day 2016
In 2016 the E-Safety Sub Group of Bristol Safeguarding Children Board commissioned two films to support the work of schools around e-safety.
The films cover the themes of “sexting” and “digital footprint”, which, from our research, are the two topics that cause schools the most concern.
Film story: Lola, a young teenager, forms a relationship with Josh after joining a new school. Through peer pressure and wanting to impress, Lola sends a sexual picture that is shared and sent further than she ever imagined.
Digital Footprint film
Film story: Wanting to land an exciting work experience opportunity, Rachel writes a promising CV and expresses her interest to a local media company. However, her behaviour soon forms a trail, leaving a negative digital footprint which paints a different picture for her potential employer.
The films are available for primary and secondary schools. You will also find a resource pack that can prompt further conversations with your students. There are also some further suggestions for games, discussions and lesson plans.
