7th February 2018 - Mark Pawsey MP visits Eastlands
As part of Internet safety week last month we were visited by Mark Pawsey. This is the press release that was sent to local media.
Eastlands Primary School leading the way in Online Safety - Rugby’s Member of Parliament, Mark Pawsey, joined students at Eastlands Primary School to support Safer Internet Day 2018.
During his visit, Mark spoke with a number of the schools eCadets, who work as part of a pupil led programme to teach children how to stay safe online. The school has been recognised for its work in the eCadet programme in the past with pupils being promoted to eChief Superintendents for the work they have done to help their classmates stay safe online. The visit tied in with Safer Internet Day, on 6th February 2018
The great work done by Eastlands eCadet’s team was also raised in the House of Commons when Mark used an opportunity during questions to the Leader of the House, the Rt. Hon. Andrea Leadsom MP, to praise the work of eCadets in schools like Eastlands. The Leader of the House responded by agreeing the importance of safer internet day and highlighting how over 700 schools around the country are taking part in Safer Internet Day this year, supported by the Government and backed by charities, football clubs and businesses.
Speaking after his visit, Mark said: "The digital world forms an increasingly large part of everyone’s life, including our children’s lives. Therefore, knowing how to remain safe online is more and more important and instilling these values at an early age is vital. That’s why I was so pleased to be able to talk to the pupils at Eastlands Primary School about the work they do to help each other stay safe online."
Mark continued: "The eCadets programme is one which enables youngsters to form their own, age appropriate, guidelines for using the internet and encouraging digital citizenship. This is especially important in the age of social media, where people are able to interact with people around the world with ease. That’s why I was very pleased to be able to support Safer Internet Day.
