Cyber Champions

Gateacre students have undergone training to become ‘Cyber Champions’  with Merseyside Police.

Living in the digital era it is becoming more apparent that cyber crime is a prevalent and pressing issue amongst young people. Especially with the introduction of new social media apps and the increase of cyber criminal activity targeted at young people. Working alongside Merseyside Police, Gateacre School has enlisted the help of Sixth Form students to participate in the ‘Cyber Champions’ Programme. The ‘Cyber Champions’ Programme trains students from different schools and colleges to help educate their peers on the dangers of cyber crime.

We are so proud of all of students who have completed their training. They are now equipped with the knowledge to pass onto others on how to avoid becoming a victim of cyber crime.

Our students will help-

  • To deliver the workshops to pupils in Year 7-11
  • To provide support and advice to pupils
  • To attend meetings when required
  • Share information, latest trends and emerging issues through the intelligence sharing hub

Around school we are committed to promoting online safety and encourage all students to be aware of what they upload onto the internet as part of their digital footprint. The students have already delivered their first workshop with our Year 7 students, and we be working with all year groups up to Year 11 in the coming weeks.
