In partnership with KCOM Click Clever is an e-safety learning initiative aimed at KS2 pupils. Developed and written by Gerald Fox, Click Clever addresses key issues of cyber bullying and staying safe online in the world of social media. Click clever has been touring Hull and the East Riding for the past 3 years and has visited over 90 schools in this time.
In 2015 we updated Click Clever with two new stories covering different aspects of the internet in Click Clever 2 we deliver a workshop alongside two short plays. In Click Clever we use forum theatre to allow the audience to participate and revisit important scenes within the play. This allows the pupils to stop the action when they see the characters making a wrong decision. We then invite up members of the audience to come up to the replay the scene and correct the mistakes made.
We also had the privilege to perform Click Clever 2 on a public platform at the CBBC Digital Festival in 2015 in front of children and parents.
Click Clever has been Funded by
East Yorkshire High Sherrif Tribune Trust
Joseph and Annie Cattle Trust
Once again, this year, our 2018 tour was a great success in the schools we visited. There was fantastic participation from the pupils who enjoyed it immensely and also learnt quite a lot from the program indicated by their response and comments after the show.

Burton Agnes Primary – Jo Kemp – Class Teacher
“Clear messages about cyber-bullying and e-safety delivered in an exciting way for the kids. I liked the involvement of the children in the performance too. A lovely day. Thank you. A good balance between listening, discussion and doing, serious points covered without scaring the children.”
Griffin Primary – Zoe Mitchell – Y6 Teacher
“Some children found certain elements funny i.e. Granddad on a scooter, the bully shouting ‘chicken’. It may be worth addressing this after the performance: It was funny because adults are acting but it represents reality.”

“Very entertaining but informative. The children thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you.”
Sproatley Primary – Anna Uney – Yr ¾ Class Teacher

Thorngumbald Primary – Julie Ellis – Headteacher
I watched the 2 performances – Both were excellent in the way they engaged the children by ‘rewinding the action’ and asking individuals to take part in am alternative scenario. Workshops were very hands-on and engaged the children fully
