Helping Local Children To Stay Safe Online

Together we are great!

Children in Great Chesterford will learn about internet safety thanks to a local community conscious business.

Build Momentum, based at Great Chesterford Court in Great Chesterford, has sponsored 30 educational books, enough for a whole class, for Great Chesterford C of E Primary Academy.

Children at the school will now use the books and educational resources to teach them about Internet Safety and Cyber Bullying as well as the dangers of social media, on-line gaming and the importance of keeping their personal information safe.

The book, Caught in the Web, is part of the Barney and Echo series and also comes with educational resources aimed at providing fun and interactive ways for primary school children to learn about important social issues. The series is published by the Police Community Clubs of Great Britain; an organisation set up by serving and retired police officers to help provide a safer life and inclusion to disadvantaged children.

Luke Rigby is the managing director of Build Momentum Ltd

“When we heard about this initiative we were only too happy to lend our support. We are fortunate enough to be based in a village that has such a strong community spirit and it is important that we do our bit to help maintain it”

“Momentum are proud to have been involved with this important community initiative,” he added.

“It has been great to be able to contribute and support our local childrens education by sponsoring the Caught in the Web books. We would like to wish all the children good luck as they work through the educational resources.”

Kelly Griffiths is the Barney and Echo books UK project director.

“The Police Community Clubs of Great Britain would like to thank all local community-minded businesses who have backed this school campaign- without them many children would be without this vital educational resource,” she said.
