Wake Up Wednesday
16/03/2022 4:42 PM

Each Wednesday during term time, we will aim to bring you a guide from the National Online Safety Team as part of our commitment to helping keep children safe online.


This week’s guide addresses the timely and delicate issue of speaking with children about worrying content they've seen online. Young people are so connected to the world through their devices that, by now, the vast majority will be acutely aware of the situation in Ukraine, even if they're not quite old enough to comprehend it fully.

Many will have watched or read potentially upsetting news items online covering the invasion - and, in all likelihood, will need extra reassurance from trusted adults during these unsettling days. Our guide has practical advice on raising the subject with young ones, allowing them to express their concerns, and helping them to avoid feeling overwhelmed by their fears.

Please note - attachments do not show on our mobile app. Visit our website at https://www.hillviewjuniors.co.uk/news-and-events to view the guide.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part in our recent Extreme Reading Competition. We had some amazing entries from destinations all around the world. From New York to The Alps and beyond, we were amazed with the brilliant and unusual places the children found to read. We also raised an incredible £1,573!
