It will describe the main elements of the school’s programme and explain how it was rolled out to all schools involving the training of around 400 staff. There will be opportunities for questions and discussion on how such a process might be applied in different settings.

Engaging with Parents

With the high profile press coverage of online predators, you would think that parents would be flocking to listen to those that could help youngsters stay safe online. Teachers, Police Officers and others are engaging with parents but attendance at events is often too low. How do we improve contact with parents and carers and how do we support them to keep their youngsters safer online.
