Learner Journey is now over five years old. In that time, hundreds of schools around the world have promoted online collaboration, taught pupils internet etiquette and provided children with a place to display their favourite work using this versatile system.

Tuesday was Safer Internet Day - an occasion for schools to remember and remind pupils about how the Internet should be used, and warn of the dangers of going online.

As part of the EYFS, every early years teacher must evidence each child’s development in a profile. This covers areas including creative and physical development, personal and social development, and communication, language and literacy.
