Wootton Park School’s commitment to educating children to stay safe online
Our ‘Super Learning Day’ took place earlier this week, which coincided with Safer Internet Day 2017 and focused on staying safe online.
We are very proud to be the launch school for Kayleigh’s Love Story in Northamptonshire, which was shown to our Year 7 learners as part of this day.
This powerful film recounts the tragic story of a 15-year-old girl who was raped and brutally murdered after being groomed online.
Showing Kayleigh’s final days before she was killed by Stephen Beadman in November 2015 after exchanging messages on social media sites, its main purpose is to protect children and to stop another family losing a child in this way. The film was made with the full support of Kayleigh’s parents to serve as a warning to young people and to illustrate the speed at which they can be groomed online without them or those around them realising what is happening.
In addition to viewing Kayleigh’s Love Story, our learners took part in a whole range of tasks and activities as part of this Super Learning Day to make them aware of potential dangers and equip them with the skills they need to stay safe online.

Following the launch of Kayleigh’s Love Story, we will also be offering our learners sessions on a variety of pertinent issues such as cyber bullying, sexting, image sharing and digital footprints as well looking at building skills in our learners to deal with issues they may find online.
Our school’s Crime Science specialism is an integral part of Wootton Park School’s curriculum, preparing learners for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in an increasingly technological and global society.
