e-Cadets

Welcome to our web page and thank you for taking the time to look at what we are doing to improve our internet safety awareness across the school.

 

e-Cadets consists of a group of KS2 children who have a passion, desire and dedication to meet up every Friday lunchtime to discuss ways that we can help improve childrens awareness of internet safety. We also what to share with you all the ways of managing online activities safety and more importantly we are able to listen to any concerns you might have and discuss with you how those concerns can be rectified.

Every week we will post up what has been discussed and the next steps;

 

 

Term 4

Week 5

INSET Day - next meeting Friday 13 April.

Week 4

This week we have continued to focus on our e-Cadets board. We have now created a 'worry box' that we will talk about in next week's assembly. We also announced the winner of our Year 6 e-Safety poster competition. This poster has now been displayed on our e-Cadets boards for the whole school to look at and admire.

 

Week 3

This week we have been focusing on our e-Cadets display board in the Dining Hall. We want it to be an interactive board that is changing from week to week with recent news updates about e-safety. We have also been creating our e-Cadets worry box which we hope to explain about next Friday during celebration assembly.

Week 2

No e- Cadets due to snow day.

Week 1

We had some judging to do this week and have chosen our winner of the Year 6 e-safety poster competition, this will be announced in assembly next Friday along with a prize!

We have also been focusing on our e-Cadets noticeboard in the dining hall and are working on what we would like to display for the school and how we can keep it updated with recent information that concerns internet safety, as this is forever changing.

Can you spot what is new on every page of our website .....?

 

Term 3

Week 6

Our long wait was finally overand we were able to present our assemblies to the rest of the school. Thank you to all the children who were amazing audiences and took part in lots of the discussion elements of our assemblies. We hope you have all taken information away from the assemblies to help you to stay safe online and to treat others with respect that you hope to get as well. The main point to come out of the assemblies was how other members of the public can access accounts or try talking to you through various social media such as 'Roblox'. We were really pleased to hear how sensible you all were at dealing with these issues and reported them straightaway without sharing any personal information.  

Mrs Lake would like to say a special thank you to her e-Cadets who worked incredibly hard to create the assemblies for both KS1 and KS2

Week 5

Not long left now! We hope you are all ready for Internet Safety Day. We are continuing to focus on what we want to discuss and talk about during our assemblies to KS1 and KS2. We decided to tell a story during our KS1 assembly and in KS2 we will be presenting a newsround and hoping for lots of discussion from the audience. 

 

Week 4

Safer Internet Day 2018 is fast approaching and we have been preparing what we are going to do and present at our KS1 and KS2 assemblies. In class the teachers are getting ready for the day too by preparing some lessons and activities for the day.

Week 3

This week we have started to focus on;

Safer Internet Day 2018

This is happening on Tuesday 6th February and we are arranging activities and assemblies that will be held on that day to inform you all about how to keep safe and happy whilst using the internet.

Next week we are planning to finalise our assemblies

Week 2

This week our focus was on providing each class with a poster informing children on the rules we must follow to insure we are safe whilst using the internet. First we discussed what these might be and used the 'SMART internet' website to aid us with the 5 simple rules we must follow;

- keep safe by not giving out any personal information

meeting people you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous so parents or carers must be present

- only accept emails, etc from people you know

- information you find on the internet may not be reliable

tell your parent or carer if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable online 

 

We are now in the process of designing and creating a poster for this information to be displayed in the classrooms

Week 1

This week we have been discussing the importance of making sure every child is aware of what is excepted when using computers and other technologies in and outside of school. As a group we went through what we think needs to be included in KS1 and KS2's Pupils 'Acceptable Use' Policy. This has now been compiled by the e-cadets and will be sent out to the classes for the pupils to sign next week.  This will form part of the school's eSafety Policy which will also need to go to Governors for their approval.

Next week we aim to focus on producing a questionnaire for children and parents to complete about internet safety.
