Children at Portishead Primary School have been learning how to use the internet safely.

PCSOs Dawn Tremlett and Debbie Charman helped to run a workshop at the school linking in with national Safer Internet Day.

Children took part in assemblies around cyber bullying, social networking and being discreet with personal information.

Parents were also given advice on protecting their children on-line.

More than 50 children took part in a competition to design an internet superhero.

The winning entry is called Cyber Dog and will be turned into an animated character on the school's website giving out safety advice.

Its creator received an art set and will see their design printed on mouse mats for the school.

PCSO Charman said: "Internet safety is an issue that affects everyone, especially children, who increasingly spend more time on-line without fully understanding the risks.

"The number of entries to the competition to design an internet superhero shows how keen children are to learn how they can have fun on-line whilst staying safe."
