‘The Shades’ are an up and coming band who are just about to play as a supporting band in the Manchester Arena . We were lucky enough to be able to invite them into AKS as part of our E Safety module in PSHE. All of Year 9 and Year 10 were treated to a mini concert followed by the band members speaking about cyberbullying, sexting, discrimination and online reputation. One Year 9 boy said ‘It was great to hear this message given by guys who were not that much older than us. Tristan, one of the band members told us his own stories about having his You Tube account hacked and how to protect our on line reputation.’
PSHE is only one of the ways we use to talk about E safety – this was a great message to hear as we approach Safer Internet Day. Visit the AKS parentzone or www.thinkuknow to find more information on talking to your child about e safety.
