Welcome to the Somerset Bridge E-Cadets page, our team of e-safety experts who will be guiding our school and helping us to learn all about how to stay safe online.
If you scroll down the page, you will find lots of facts and information about E-Safety and useful websites and documents.
We are very proud to inform you that Somerset Bridge has been awarded the 360 degree safe online mark by the South West Grid for Learning.
This achievement is a credit to the hard work of our teachers and leaders in promoting Online Safety around the school and also to our wonderful E-Cadets, who work really hard on keeping their classes safe online! Please see below our accreditation certificate and letter from Cllr Frances Nicholson.
Safeguarding Children in a Digital World
The Internet has become an integral part of all our lives. Both adults and children access the World Wide Web as part of our work and social activity. Technology developments and improvements enable us to be in constant touch every hour of the day, every day of the week and wherever we are.
The Internet has become a place where we can share our thoughts, our pictures and keep up with our friends and families. Unfortunately, as with many things, the Internet is open to misuse which can have a negative effect on anyone involved. Safe and appropriate use of digital technology is the way forward.

Key Stage 1
This is a great introduction for younger children as they help Smartie the Penguin learn how to stay safe when using his computer and playing on the internet.
These adventures are created for infant children. They are guided through many E Safety areas as they watch Hector and his friends learn how to use their computers safely!
Junior children can explore The SMART Crew Adventures which includes the real life SMART Crew of young people who guide the cartoon characters in their quest and help them make smart online decisions.
The cyber café is aimed at 8-10 year olds. It offers visitors the chance to explore the many different areas of personal computing such as emails, online chats and searching the web.
