Missions so far
To raise the profile of the e-Cadets and promote the important message around the safe use of the internet, the e-Cadets launched an e-safety poster competition. We received some fantastic entries and the e-Cadets had a difficult task deciding on the winners.
The e-Cadets introduced themselves to the parents in one of our recent assemblies. The e-Cadets had the task of promoting internet safety through the use of a parenting magazine called ‘Digital Parenting’, which each parent was given a copy of.
The e-Cadets recommended certain parts of the magazine, their recommendations included:
- Page 7 – What is digital resilience? ‘It allows someone using the internet to recognise when they are at risk.’
- Page 14 – Are you an over-sharent? ‘This explains about over sharing information about your child.’
- Page 16 – Once upon a virtual time. ‘ Tommy the tablet and Sally the smartphone. They are characters created to teach online safety.’
- Page 28 – Keep out! ‘Criminals are finding ways to get you and your family to part with your personal details. This will give you ways to stop them!’
- Page 30 – Social media, body image and the pressure to look just right! ‘ How to find the right balance.’
- Page 41 – Help at hand! ‘Find information on how to report and set privacy and parental controls.’
A parents’ guide to being Share Aware
The e-Cadets love using opportunities to share their message on e-safety with a large audience, the school Christmas productions were a perfect chance for the e-Cadets to share a useful guide on being Share Aware with the parents’ provided by the NSPCC.
Internet Safety Day 2018
To celebrate Safer Internet Day on Tuesday 6th February 2018, the e-Cadets launched their new competition. All children in school have been given the opportunity to create their own superhero, their character needs to have a special power that keeps children safe whilst using the internet. The children were also given a booklet for their parents’ and carers’ titled ‘Your child’s online world‘. The booklet is full of useful information and tips, designed to make using the internet a positive experience for all.

The e-Cadets looked for super heroes that were colourful as well as having a relevant super power. Well done to our winners, we hope you enjoy your prize!
