The Google Be Internet Legends assembly teaches Key Stage 2 pupils the skills they need to be safe and confident explorers of the online world. It is completely free and is part of a larger programme, featuring a free PSHE Association-accredited curriculum pack, family resources and free online game. The assemblies are delivered by Parent Zone, with training teams delivering assemblies into primary schools all across the UK.
The assembly focused on the five core pillars of the Be Internet Legends educational programme, incorporating characters from an imaginary world called Interland. The pillars are:
Lola – I liked how it was interactive and it was fun to learn about being safe online.
Libby – I liked that there was a game that they showed us and that they talked to the characters on the screen.
Lucia – I liked how we did the challenge times, they were fun.
Matei – I enjoyed all of it and learnt how to keep myself safe online.
Daisy – I liked how there are different islands which you can visit.
Paige – I liked how you could defeat the bullies.

Safer Internet Day 2020 will be celebrated globally with the theme 'Together for a better internet'. This year in the UK, the focus will be on how young people explore and express their identify online.
Free to be me: Exploring identity online
Safer Internet Day is designed to empower young people to take control of their digital lives. For 2020 we are putting the focus on online identity and asking young people to consider whether they and their peers are truly free to be themselves online. Within school, children will access a range of resources, including films, assemblies and various in class activities to help them navigate the issue of online identity in a digital age in a safe, responsible and respectful way.
