Our e-Cadets work with Mrs Aitken and Mr Smith twice per half term, to deliver our school online safety curriculum. Our e-Cadets lead school assemblies and teach their class about each aspect of keeping safe online. They also help us to provide support and information for the whole school community.
What Ofsted Inspectors say is outstanding for online safety… eCadets provides! Including instilling Digital Citizenship
“An age-appropriate e-safety curriculum that is flexible, relevant and engages pupils’ interest; that is used to promote e-safety through teaching pupils how to stay safe, how to protect themselves from harm and how to take responsibility for their own and others’ safety. Positive rewards are used to cultivate positive and responsible use. Peer mentoring programmes.”
Ofsted Guidance on eSafety, 2015
This half term, our mini eCadets (Reception, Year 1 and 2) and eCadets (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) have been discussing the importance of ‘digital well-being’ with the children and adults in our school. Digital well-being is about making sure you are feeling happy and healthy when you are playing on a tablet, computer or phone. They are always on hand to give advice and support to their class if they have any questions or concerns about being safe and healthy online.
They are looking forward to their next challenge in the New Year 2021!
