Solvay Halifax has sponsored a new initiative, which will enable Holywell Green Primary School, in Stainland Road, to supply 120 pupils with an informative and entertaining book on how to use the internet safely.

‘Caught in the Web’, which is part of a series of books produced by The Police Community Clubs of Great Britain, explores the issues of internet safety and cyber-bullying via Barney Eagle, Echo Squirrel and their friends.

Paul McVeigh, headteacher at Holywell Green Primary School, said: “Schools have a vital role to play in getting internet safety messages across to children. We are extremely grateful to Solvay Halifax for enabling us to provide pupils with such a fantastic learning tool.”

The book is supplemented by a variety of activities, such as word searches, a web maze, questions and colouring, to help children learn how to use the internet safely and responsibly.

Guillaume Peron, Solvay Halifax Site Director, said: “It is imperative that children learn how to use the internet safely and have a clear set of rules to follow. We are pleased to help Holywell Green Primary School further pupils’ knowledge and understanding in this area by sponsoring these valuable books.”
