Share Aware Campaign
Share Aware, from NSPCC and O2, gives parents all the tools they need to have regular and informed conversations with their child about staying safe online. Under 20% of parents discuss online safety regularly with their children but we want to get every family talking about their child’s life online, just as they would their day at school.
Parents can sign up to the Icebreaker email series and become an expert in their child’s online world in 6 weeks, follow our four simple steps to keeping kids safe online, watch our film ‘Safety advice from a 10 year old’ or visit Net Aware – our guide to your child’s social networks apps and games.
The internet is a great place for kids to be, being Share Aware makes it safer.

At West Cornforth Primary School, we pride ourselves on being safe when we are online and using digital devices. There is an eCadet group that regularly helps and advises children in school. This group took over the teaching of digital literacy for Safer Internet Day 2017. They planned, resourced and delivered lessons to each class in school. The group received excellent feedback from both children and teachers! Well done to Emily, Ellie, Madison, Logan, Harvey, Caitlin, Robert, Joe and Harvey.
The eCadets are a group of children who you can go to if you have any problems with the internet. We are planning to get badges so people can notice us. We have our own website which records our achievements and our aims for the future. E-safety is important to us because we want our pupils to be happy in school and online and most importantly with themselves.
Who is in the eCadets?
Emily, Logan, Joe, Robert, Caitlin, Harvey, Ellie S and Madison.
