E-Cadets is an important part of our e-safety at Ysgol Cefn Mawr.
- E-Cadets is a national and international programme across over 2500 schools.
- Pupils are chosen to be e-cadets for having great qualities, such as, being a good listener, caring about others and being a team player.
- As an eCadet, they work as part of a team to advise fellow pupils on how to protect themselves when browsing the internet, using social media on smart phones and tablets, or playing online games.
- They are supported in school by Mr Williams and an eCadet Trainer to ensure they have plenty of support in their role.
- All eCadets complete termly challenges relating to eSafety, earning points to help the school compete in a league table against other schools across England and Wales.
- During the 2015/16 school year the E-Cadets were Ruby Evans, Aaliah Roberts, Rhys Cook and Jaydan , Mason Blake Haines, Seren Morris and Aaniah Roberts.
- They composed an e-cadet promise of acceptable ICT usage for all pupils which is displayed in every class, made posters on staying safe online, produced a video for National Internet Safety Day at Ysgol Rhiwabon and helped deliver a school assembly. The video can be viewed on our public drive.
- One E-Cadet also helped a pupil who had her home P.C. hacked by contacting Henry for advice.
- The four Year 6 children who left interviewed Year 4 children to become new E-Cadets.
Sarae Williams, Keira Rose, Alfie Parry and Charlie Gorham.
- We also welcomed Christiaan Roets, a Wales and North Wales Crusaders player as the school’s honorary e-cadet.
- They gained lots of confidence and knowledge from the experience and it is good for the children to take ownership and help their peers.
- Out of hundreds of schools, we finished 9th in the league table in July 2015, the highest place school in Wrexham.
Mr Simon Williams
March 2016 – The Cadets have just completed two more challenges and have been awarded eChief Constable status. Da iawn E- Cadets! One more for the top award of eCadet Ambassadors! The E-Cadets will soon be meeting up with the Governors to discuss E Safety and they will also be creating bubble accounts for KS2 pupils.
