Be Internet Legends - a free KS2 internet safety curriculum
Parent Zone and Google have developed a free internet safety programme to help Key Stage 2 pupils become safe and confident online explorers. The Be Internet Legends curriculum pack includes PSHE Association-accredited lesson plans, engaging classroom activities, posters, stickers and more. The curriculum is built around five pillars - Sharp, Alert, Secure, Kind, Brave - and is designed to equip children with the key skills needed to stay safe online including critical thinking and empathy. There are also free downloadable family activities to engage parents and an interactive online game called Interland.
