Toynton Primary School is part of the Lincolnshire Children's Safeguarding Board's Junior Online Safety Officer (JOSO) programme, with many other schools in the Kyra East Alliance. Each year we select children from Year 5 and 6 to work alongside other e-safety ambassadors from our partner schools, in order to empower our children at school to be masters of technology, rather than slaves to it.
The LSCB set challenges over the course of this year; together we are spreading the word about keeping safe online to over 1,000 children in all of our schools.
