Safer Internet Day 2020 is happening on Tuesday 11th February 2020. We will be touring schools between 3rd -14th February delivering Online Safety themed performance assemblies, workshops and staff and teacher training, all following this years Safer Internet Day theme: ‘Together For a Better Internet’.

Our Online Safety Programme will help your school community to feel empowered to make positive decisions, to recognise the impact of their digital footprint and to feel confident to say ‘no’ even when everyone around them seems to be saying ‘yes’.

We will guide your young people to recognise the importance of their ‘online morals’, so that whilst they are having new experiences they can always come back to a solid, confident understanding of what is safe and unsafe, fact and opinion, respectful and disrespectful.

 

Click on the different tabs to see a more in depth explanation of the elements that make up our Online Safety Programme.

The day starts with an age appropriate, thought provoking performance to either KS1 or KS2* in your main hall. We portray real life issues through creative and child friendly stories, fuelled with characters representing a relatable online scenario. 

*There are separate programmes for KS1 / KS2, Every year the content of the programme adapts with the emerging trends and challenges relating to issue young people may face online, this is inspired by our data, knowledge and the Safer Internet Day theme. 

A high energy, educational and interactive workshop follows the assembly, allowing young people to further explore the online safety themes and roles related to the performance. This enables young people to explore both positive and negative outcomes when faced with bullying; encouraging them to make well informed decisions with empathy and self awareness. Each class participates in a 1 hour workshop, this is typically delivered in the classrooms. Often we have the team capacity to run up to 3 workshops at the same time in separate spaces.

Your school will receive a simple and effective follow on creative educational activities and resources that can be used by teachers in the classroom environment and within whole school campaigns, including cross curriculum activities. 

Add on: Comprehensive 6 week Online Safety lesson plan package.  This pack enables your teachers to run 6 assemblies with 6 lessons plans to follow (all content provided). There are KS1 and KS2 packs available, which will be sent electronically along with all resources. Each lesson gives you creative activities which explore themes surrounding Online Safety. Including FREE resources for classroom displays and website newsletters.

We’ll help you evaluate the day by preparing a monitoring report* concluding your children’s learning outcomes, observations and awareness of Online Safety. Within this we offer advice, tools and guidance to help you vocalise and evidence your progress to any inspections and school priority plans.

*Evaluation reports are only available for ‘Performance and Workshop’ programme packages.

We are aware that every school is different and therefore has different wants and needs. Every programme we provide will be custom made to suit your school. Whether that be you require targeted Online Safety workshops for a specific year group, or you have a specific budget, we will be able to help. Contact us today so we will be able to build an Online Safety programme to suit your setting.

Our Online Safety Programme 2020 will follow this year’s Safer Internet Day Theme –

Problems in the online world are often driven by user behaviour, rather than the technology itself. Therefore Unique Voice will ensure to develop the emotional resilience and knowledge of your students to enable them to make mature decisions in the online world, when faced with issues such as cyber bullying.

Students will explore how they use the internet as they encounter a variety of content, ensuring they are doing so in a both a positive and safe manner. Focusing on subjects such as, control settings, passwords and privacy.

Students will be given the opportunity to examine and reflect upon their current and potential future online activity. In order to gain an understanding of the impact this may have on how others perceive them and their aspirations for their future selves.

We will focus on issues such as, fake news and false data to give your students the confidence to make sensible and informed choices whilst online. Enabling them to challenge the sources and information they are presented with and form their own educated decisions and opinions.

Testimonials

"What Would You Do? has given the children in our class an opportunity to develop their understanding of how to play an important role in their community. Through ongoing role plays and discussion, children have learnt what behaviour is acceptable and what is not. More important, they have developed an understanding of what to do if they see people behaving in inappropriate and unacceptable ways. They now know who crime stoppers are and how to contact them. The sessions have also helped the children develop their confidence in acting and sharing ideas in front of their peers. This has been a valuable experience. Thank you". 
Gemma DarbySt Werburghs Primary School
The children of Saint Barnabas have immensely enjoyed their time spent with unique voice over the last couple of months. Due to the interactive nature and structure of the activities, all children have achieved great things in terms of performance, confidence, and understanding of the issues which affect us all. The safe environment, which unique voice has fostered, enabled the children to explore their feelings and responses to real life situations.
Micheal Cromney and Alison CampSt Barnabas Primary School
A Fantastic and worthwhile morning – The children got a lot from it. A safe, trusting environment was established and the workshop involved everyone at all times.
Alison Dineen, TeacherHareclive Academy Bristol
The Workshop was pitched at an appropriate level and children were able to engage. Today has made staff and children aware of young carers and the issues they face. This will enable us to support and identify young carers in the long run.
Vicky Wells, TeacherHareclive Academy Bristol
Our thanks are to Unique Voice for providing such a professional drama performance and workshops. I felt the play was perfectly pitched and was very thought provoking. I will certainly highly recommend Unique Voice whenever I can.
Sally Sibley, School Community Link WorkerMangotsfield
Thank you for a brilliant morning. Keep up the fantastic work at other schools. You make a difference Unique Voice.
Badock's Wood on Unique Voice Creative Services
The play had immediate impact on the children. They were captivated and wanted to talk about it straight away. I will use this to relate situations that occur in school and talk about how the characters dealt with things.
Badock's Wood on the Anti Bullying Project
The workshop was excellent and really involved all of the children. I particularly enjoyed the fact that all of the types of bullying were covered throughout the morning.
Richard Welsh, TeacherSummerhill Juniors, Triple R 2013
This is the second play I've seen by Unique Voice and it was just as powerful as the first- Amazing - and very relevant to the children's lives.
Triple R 2013Summerhill Juniors
Unique Voice are particular skilled in engaging hard to reach young people. These young people are less likely to engage in main stream education and therefore more likely to find themselves in risky situations including crime and anti-social behaviour.
Kelly ParsonsPCSO 7106/Orchard School Liaison Officer, Bristol
I thought the play was brilliant! It engaged all the pupils and made them think about other peoples personal problems and why bullying behaviour may occur.
Geraldine Mikey, TeacherBridge Learning Campus
Unique voice does exactly what it says on the tin! Children are given an opportunity to express themselves…. to find their voice, in a unique way. Our school has worked closely with Unique Voice for several years now, they have come in to school providing workshops etc. I have also been given the opportunity to send some of our most vulnerable children on some holiday schemes. These have proved invaluable in boosting pupil’s confidence and in turn their self-esteem. The children have thrived during their experience, an experience they would otherwise never have had. The whole family benefits as it has a knock on effect on their behaviour and demeanour at home.
Jane AllenParson Street
A great experience for the girls. Last years workshop was talked about all year and I used it as a tool when dealing with issues with the previous year 7s.
Kirsty LawrenceColstons Girls School
Facilitators were excellent at including everyone in a friendly open way. They were able to recognise individuals who were shy and were careful not to push them into their ‘panic zone’.
