The Hall Primary School "We launched the competition during our Safer Internet Day assembly and then put up the display with post-it notes ready for the children. It gave them a chance to think about their tips and reflect over time as they did a different topic each day. It was great to see pupils from KS1 upwards getting involved and crowding around the display in order to get their ideas up."
