Sixth form students help highlight the 'Make the Internet a Safer Place' message
Sixth Form students at Roding Valley High School, Loughton, have taken part in a special project for Safer Internet Day on the theme of 'Play your part for a better internet'.
The students and Head of Sixth Form Lee Harris ran a week of special assemblies, culminating in a Safer Internet poster involving as many students and staff as possible.
This was then turned into a video that went viral with over 50,000 hits.

Safer Internet Day is co-ordinated by the UK Safer Internet Centre.
The celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
Mr Harris said: "The Safer Internet Campaign is just one of the many exciting and innovative out-of-class activities we use within the Roding Valley Sixth Form to engage students lower down the school, and reach out with a global message.
"In this instance the message was 'Make the internet a Safer Place'."
