Our Digital Leaders

Our Digital Leaders are children with a passion for technology, who want to share their knowledge with others and promote the use of all things digital throughout our school.  Being a Digital Leader is a fantastic opportunity for the children to take on responsibility, learn new skills, develop and demonstrate leadership skills.

Anti-Bullying Week 14th November 2022

To launch anti-bullying week in school, the Digital Leaders have created a video to represent bullying in its different forms. During our assembly, all the children had the chance to watch the video and consider who we reach out to if we are worried about ourselves, or somebody else in our school. 

Safer Internet Day

As part of Safer Internet Day (8th February 2022), the Digital Leaders created an E-Safety advice video. The team scripted, edited, filmed and created animations as part of the video.
