PUPILS at a Bradford primary school have been visited by Google to learn how to stay safe when using the internet.

The Be Internet Legends programme, run by Google in partnership with internet safety experts Parent Zone, visited Knowleswood Primary School in Holme Wood.

Children were taught how to be alert, secure, sharp, kind and brave when using the internet to avoid hackers, phishers and cyberbullies, and what to do if they come across them.

They also took part in Interland, an adventure game which teaches them about online safety in a fun and informative manner.

Rosie Luff, online safety public policy manager at Google, said: “We were delighted to visit Knowleswood to help teach children about how to Be Internet Legends.

“By getting acquainted with what we believe are the five core areas of online safety, we want to prepare children to have a safe and positive experience online.”

Vicki Shotbolt, chief executive of Parent Zone, added: “It is essential that children learn to think carefully and critically about what they do and see online.

"Parent Zone has teamed with Google to teach younger children the essential tools they need to become safe and confident online explorers, helping them be resilient, kind and positive in this digital age."

Be Internet Legends is an educational programme aimed at seven to 11-year-olds to help them be safe and confident users of the internet.
