  • Screen Time for Children

    Published 24/01/23, by Helen Holmes

    We know that a part of life in recent years has been an increase in the use of screens for learning and entertainment. However, it is worth considering how too much screen time can affect children (and adults as well)! Below is a summary of research that has been carried out into the effects of screen time on children.

  • Digital Leaders

    Published 16/12/22, by Peter Cresswell


    We are the year 5/6 digital leaders across the Equals Trust: Heymann, Abbey Road, Keyworth, Tollerton, Burton Joyce, Cropwell Bishop, Robert Miles Junior, Brookside, Flintham, Richard Bonnington, Willow Farm and Crossdale.

    You can easily recognise us by the blue digital leaders badges that we wear. At least one student from each school joined together in December 2022 to discuss online safety and messages we wanted pupils in our schools to have with the Christmas holidays coming up. We were then all involved in writing articles in these  issues - hopefully, making them a fun and interesting read!

    We hope the issues below, aimed at Y3/4 and Y5/6, help you and your family stay safe on the internet :-)

  • Cyber Bullying

    Published 10/07/22, by Peter Cresswell

    July 2022

    We have recently been made aware that a few children in Y6 have been part of a group on snapchat where the language used was extremely unkind and targeted one specific child in a way that could be described as bullying. Although we believe the worst messages came from a child who is not a pupil at KPNS, a small number of our pupils were part of the group.

    We will be talking to the children but wanted you to know that we have asked South Wolds school how they deal with such matters. They have told us that where the identity of a child who is using social media to bully other children can be proven, they would urge parents to pass messages onto the police and also exclude the perpetrators from school. In future, we will take the same actions at KPNS – we cannot tolerate bullying behaviour in any way, even when it takes place out of school on social media.

    Please speak to your child about this matter to ensure they understand how serious it is – we do not want any pupils from KPNS involved in such behaviour either as the victims or the perpetrators.

    We would urge all parents to: 

    • Ensure your child is not accessing social media beyond their chronological age
    • Set up appropriate parental controls on phones and all electronic devices
    • Regularly check your child's usage - read their chats
    • Put appropriate sanctions and consequences in place if your child is not using social media responsibly.
