Pontlliw Primary School in Swansea identified that there was a need for esafety to be fun and engaging. Children had heard the same message delivered for a number of years and so were bored of it. They decided to do something different and memorable so that the esafety messages would stick, by putting words of meanings into songs they love, the children would remember them... this is exactly the case... the children can now be heard singing the new esafety words to the tunes in the playground!
The project was completed online to promote esafety and digital skills whilst ensuring the new song words were being learnt.
The event was held in the local Village Hall and was attended by the children, teachers, governors, parents etc ensuring it was promoted to the local community as well as the school.
The project has gone from strength to strength with other schools using the songs for their own esafety advice... so much so, that Pontlliw Primary School are looking to release a CD of their re-vamped tunes in the near future!!
For an example : - Remember to sing it to the Jusitn Bieber tune "Love Yourself"
