Our eCadets play an important role in keeping us safe online. We have two eCadets from each year group who attend regular meetings to discuss online safety issues and plan assemblies and activities for the whole school to get involved with. The eCadet programme allows us access to a flexible and engaging online safety curriculum that addresses the present online issues that our children experience. It is also invaluable that it is the children who share the information with their classes.
In January, we welcomed Henry Platten, founder of eCadets to school to work with each class on their understanding of online safety and ways to protect themselves. Henry also delivered a presentation in a family assembly and then spoke directly to parents about their concerns and informed them of things to be aware of.
To celebrate Safer Internet Day, each class from Y1 – Y6 had a workshop by One Day Creative focussed on keeping children safe online. We want good online safety and communication on the matter to become embedded into our school ethos.
We encourage children who have online safety concerns to share them with a trusted adult or an eCadet, who will then pass the concern on to a relevant teacher. We also encourage parents and carers who have concerns to get in touch with school, so we can support you with these issues.
