Calling all primary schools!

Educate magazine is joining forces with eCadets to celebrate Safer Internet Day and offer schools a half price membership to the eSafety programme for the current academic year.

Safer Internet Day, which this year takes place on 9 February, is a celebration of the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
Empowering and supporting pupils to keep their friends safe online is the heartbeat of the award-winning eCadet programme, so Educate Magazine are delighted to join forces to celebrate Safer Internet Day, and bring the programme to more schools across the region.
Executive editor of Educate Magazine, Kim O’Brien said: “At Educate we pride ourselves on delivering amazing solutions to support schools in everything we do, which is why we’re proud to have partnered with the award-winning eCadets.
“We have a great relationship with eCadets which has enabled us to bring this fantastic offer to schools. All they need to do to is register at with the offer code ‘Educate16’.”
The eCadets was founded by former Police Sergeant Henry Platten and is run by pupils in a school, through the website There are regular curriculum linked activities which empower kids to learn to stay safe through play.
There is also the opportunity for pupils to safely connect with children the same age through the site, which is all moderated by the former police officers at eCadets.
Founder of eCadets, Henry Platten, said: “It is so rewarding to see the amazing impact the pupils have in keeping their friends safe. Children will always talk to other children and we seek to give a team of peer mentors the support, structure and training to be able to help keep the entire school community safe.
“Through our curriculum-linked activities the children take full ownership, for example, in one activity they trained parents, designing what they felt parents needed to know to stay safe.”
