Our Primary Internet Safety Mentor Project, PRISM, is a peer-to-peer project designed to give your pupils ownership of their e-safety curriculum and develop them as leaders in your school.
Most internet safety projects for schools are designed for pupils in upper KS2 and above and tend to be based on what adults think they need to learn.

The photos on this page show pupils at RL Hughes Primary School, Wigan, taking part in and leading on PRISM.

PRISM is different because it is aimed at all ages of primary pupils and encourages them to make decisions. They take the lead on e-safety and PRISM gives them ownership of what they think their classmates really need to learn, and how.

It is very much a two-way project and, we feel, one of the best things about it!

Ofsted recognises the value of peer led projects in the e-safety framework and withsafeguarding taking an even greater priority in the new common inspection framework, due out any time now, we are sure PRISM is going to be popular.

PRISM is an ideal way of providing pupils eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant with an e-safety enrichment curriculum.

If you have pupils who need guidance and support in using the internet safely PRISM encourages them to share sensible and appropriate key internet safety messages with their peers, at the same time modelling positive online behaviour.

Our project PRISM is delivered over the course of a year with training input from our qualified teacher and CEOP Ambassador, who has many years experience working with pupils and parents on e-safety issues.

If you would like to find out more about how you can get PRISM in your school,
