Safety & Happiness
Your safety and happiness is vital to us at Dalestorth. If there is something wrong, you are upset or worried about anything or you feel unsafe it is very important you talk to someone you trust such as a friend, an adult or a teacher.
If you feel worried about talking to someone you know, you can call ChildLine on 0800 11 11 at anytime you like or in an online chat at
You may also like to use Kooth which offers free, safe and anonymous online counselling and support.
It is really important that everyone (both children and adults) knows how to stay safe online. Using the Internet sensibly is something that we encourage all children to do during their time at Dalestorth.
Safer Internet Day - Wednesday 10th February 2021
We spent the day looking at ways to ensure that we could all safely enjoy the internet. We discussed the importance of using the internet responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.
This year, Safer Internet Day fell during lockdown. We were spending much more time on the internet and it was very important that we learnt how to do this safely.
The whole school took part in an 'Internet Safety Poster' competition. We had some fantastic entries that highlighted how much the children knew about staying safe on the internet. We also read some great books such as 'Chicken Clicking' and 'Penguinpig'.
Here are links to some useful websites where you can learn more about being safe on the Internet.
