Online Safety & Mental Health Assembly with New Kings Order

Yesterday Year 7 were visited by the band New Kings Order to entertain them and deliver an important message.

The band performed songs by 1 Direction and Little Mix among others and spoke to them about cyberbullying and staying safe online. They spoke about privacy settings and looking out for each other online - an important message we repeat regularly to our students.

They talked about things you shouldn’t post online or send using apps like snapchat and also explained how a person’s digital footprint would never disappear and would stay online forever. The group also explained how your social media posts and/or messages could impact future jobs in 5, 10 or 20 years.

The group wanted our students to understand how cyberbullying can affect people and impact mental health and that speaking to someone (a family member, teacher or friend) was a great way to get help and start making things better.

Lastly the New Kings Order asked Year 7 to promise them two things:

  • Never send anything to anyone you wouldn’t show to your mum
  • Always talk to someone if you are a victim of cyberbullying or struggling with your mental health

We would like to thank New Kings Order for coming into school - the students really enjoyed the performance and we appreciate your positive messages.
