SCC Internet Safety Award 2014/15 

‘eCadets’ 
Cornist Park Primary, Flint, North Wales 
Nominated by: Kellie Williams  
 
E-cadets Dominic Seton, 10, Hannah Brown, 11, Lugh Doyle, 10, and Nell Jones, 10, have led a campaign at Cornist Park Primary School with class mates to educate about internet dangers and cyber-bullying. 
 
Children at the school took part in a whole host of activities including writing and singing songs, inventing games, holding themed assemblies and producing a cyber-bullying page for the school’s website. 
 
E-cadet, Lugh explained he enjoyed being involved in the project after leading an awareness project in his home town: “I like using the e-cadet website to learn about keeping safe and sharing what I know with my friends in school, mums and dads and people in Flint,” he said. 
 
Fellow e-cadet Hannah added: “I enjoy being an e-cadet because I get to help people stay safe online.” 
Cornist Park Primary School
Teacher Kellie Williams is also the e-learning manager at the school and said she was delighted with the award. 
“The children have enjoyed the project immensely, empowering the children to learn e-safety was the key,” she said. 
 
“At the time of beginning this project we had just purchased 40 iPads for the school and we had plans to purchase more digital technology in the near future. We strongly believe that digital technology and e-safety go hand in hand. 
 
“We knew that once we had introduced devices such as iPads that children would want them at home too which made educating both pupils and parents even more important. The e-cadet project was perfect for raising awareness of how to stay safe online by educating pupils, parents and teachers. 
 
“The children have been busy doing lots of things- they’ve made songs up and games to help the other children learn the rules to keep safe on the internet. The children even went in to Barclays bank in Flint to tell people how to keep their banking safe.” 
 
She added: “I’m really proud of the children and honoured that their work has been recognised.” 
 
Kelly Griffiths organiser of the Community Education Awards also paid tribute to the children’s hard work. 
“Children spend a large amount of time on the internet in this day and age and online safety is vital,” she said. 
 
“The Children at Cornist Park Primary School have done a tremendous job in helping to educate their fellow pupils and I would like to truly congratulate all the teachers and children involved- both e-cadets and their classmates for a brilliant job well done.”
