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 Thurdsy 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 any next steps;
This week have been discussing some of the results from our recent school survey. If you haven't completed it, can you please visit the website below
This week we focused on producing the leaflets that we wanted to hand out to the parents/carers with the products that were going to be bought at the Summer Fayre. We decided to produce three leaflets that focus on different age groups. We would like to say a special thanks to everyone who visited our stall on Friday and purchased our key rings and bookmarks. They were a great success.
Keep posting through any concerns in our worry box as this is checked regularly.
Week 3 and 4
For the past two weeks we have been continuing to prepare our ideas to sell at the Summer Fayre.
We just want to remind everyone that if you have any concern about anything online that you can always approach one of the team and we would be happy to help. You can also use our e-Cadets Worry Box located in the Dining Room under our board.
This week we have started to prepare our bookmarks and key rings to sale at the Summer Fayre from 3.30 to 5.30 pm on Friday 6 July. We have been thinking about the messages that we want to place on the back of the bookmarks and keyrings, and also how much we would like to charge everyone for them. We have decided on 50p for the bookmark and key ring.
We would also like to remind everyone about our e-cadets box for any worries or concerns that you might have online. We check this every week so do let us know.
Mrs Lake was in Weston super Mare with the Year 1s on their educational visit. Next meeting Thursday 14 June.
This week we have been finalising our ideas and are hoping to get creating them after half term.
Can we remind everyone to keep checking our e-cadet board and to use our e-cadet worry box for any concerns you might have and we will make sure we respond as quick as possible and hope to come to some resolution for you.
Royal Wedding themed day with a special lunch- next meeting Thursday 24th May
This week we went to find out whether children would be interested in buying our key rings and book marks. So, each e-cadet had an I-pad showing ideas of what we wanted to create and during our meeting we went out on the playgrounds to discuss with the children our ideas and we had some really good feedback and comments.
This week with our ideas set on key rings and book marks we set out to research ways that we could incorporate internet safety information on these products. We have decided to leave one side blank for the children to place their own design of their favourite online game, with ideas from us of course! Then place simple words and messages to remind everyone about the importance of online safety. We have also got parents booklets that we will be handing out to parents from the stall
One of our main concerns as the e-cadet team is how to make sure everyone has the right information about how to stay safe online. We have been focusing on providing the children with this information through posters, assemblies, internet safety day etc. We are now discussing how we could inform our parents as well. We have the school summer fayre coming up in term 6 and thought this would be the perfect opportunity.
So, this week we have been discussing ideas and products that we could sell to our friends and also find a way to inform the parents and still provide information for the children to help them stay safe online.
This week we have been discussing all the needs and worries that we think the children might have. We then thought that it would be important to find out from every child what and if they had any concerns when using the internet. We then thought of 10 questions that we could ask the children. We are going to ask the children to complete this during their computing lessons and collate the results at a later date.
We are now meeting on a Thursday lunch time.
This week we finished our e-cadets board and have been using the news board to update the children on any important news or just a little reminder to everyone about how to stay safe online.
INSET Day - next meeting Friday 13 April.
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.
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.
No e- Cadets due to snow day.
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 .....?
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
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.
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. If you would like to find information and activities fro you to do at home then follow the link below.
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
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;
S - keep safe by not giving out any personal information
M - meeting people you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous so parents or carers must be present
A - only accept emails, etc from people you know
R - information you find on the internet may not be reliable
T - 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
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.
