At Huby CE Primary School your child’s safety is our main priority.

Whilst it is important that we do not obstruct children from accessing the internet, it is equally important that we teach them how to use the internet safely and appropriately.

The Band Runner game
Featuring characters and safety messages from the Thinkuknow Play Like Share films, Band Runner is a fun game that puts children’s knowledge about online safety to the test by asking them to help characters make safe choices.
Players can chose to play the game as characters Ellie or Sam who use their guitars to eliminate all obstacles in their path as they run through school in order to make it to their next gig. If players miss a jump or take a tumble they then need to help Alfie solve an online safety dilemma to be able to continue play. As players pass to the next level the running gets faster!
