Staying Safe and Healthy
Family Agreement materials to stay Healthy, Happy, Safe when using technology
Letter sent out to remind families about ways to keep their children safe when enjoying the use of technology. This has been shared by St Bartholomews First School who are happy for any other schools to make use of it.
Our 'Healthy Me Diary', developed with
SASP, aims to support families to build healthy habits (both physical and mental, with and without technology) by regularly recording positive, healthy behaviours. It is an opportunity for parents and children to work together to
recognise healthy habits, so they become a regular part of their lifestyle. Click the links below to download printable versions:

GoBubble: Digital Communities to support pupil wellbeing
GoBubble is a safer, healthier and kinder, digital community for all children, which allows them to interact with other pupils or teachers at their school and rewards kindness. GoBubble also offers the opportunity to collaborate with peers and professionals across the world. It can support any curriculum topic and seamlessly connects with other platforms.
We are currently running a GoBubble pilot in Somerset, with a number of schools trialling the platform with their pupils and being part of a project investigating its impact on wellbeing.

An AV1 robot can become the student’s ‘physical presence’ in the classroom when a young person is unable to attend school. This could be due to sheltering or self isolation. These are available to Somerset schools only to hire out as and when the need arrives. Information is available on the SSE website.
