Community Education Awards – Internet Safety Categories

Community Education AwardsThe Community Education Awards is an annual celebration of schools’ efforts to help children and young people to become positive community members.

The Police Community Clubs of Great Britain use the Awards to demonstrate the most innovative and effective approaches currently in use and encourage the development of more projects that will have a positive impact on pupils.

The awards for 2014/15 include categories spanning; Health, Safety and Lifestyle; Finance, Enterprise and Employment; Environment; Individuals and; Technology. The Technology category includes the two following awards:

SCC Internet Safety Award
The Internet can be an invaluable resource for entertainment, making new friends and helping children learn. However, the Internet poses many dangers with users potentially at risk. In the same way children should learn about safety in school, they should also be taught the importance of staying safe online. Schools should enter this Award with projects that deal with educating children on how to avoid inappropriate content, how to keep personal information safe and the best practice for downloading information.

The Cyber Bullying Project Award
With social networking, the Internet and the use of mobile technology (texting) having a bigger impact on how we all communicate on a daily basis, it is crucial that children do not become victims of cyber bullying. With pupils just as likely to experience cruelty from children in internet chatrooms as in the classrooms themselves, this award would like to hear about projects that have looked to tackle cyber bullying.

The awards are supported by a number of big names including Axa PPP Healthcare and Childline, and their Brand Ambassador is once again Esther Ranzen, who has been involved with the awards since their launch in 2011.

Awards Organiser Kelly Griffiths said: “The Community Education Awards continue to go from strength to strength with pupils and teachers gaining recognition for their work in a number of areas such as internet safety and the environment, amongst many others.

“For the 2014/15 academic year we have expanded our Awards to incorporate more topics and we are already looking forward to hearing success stories from schools and teachers up and down the country.

“We are proud to offer schools the opportunity to have a project or person rewarded for their achievements. As we open the Awards for entries, we would like to encourage schools to visit our website and enter one of the awards on offer through our online form.”
