BBC News reported in November that The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) has tracked an increase of 880 additional cases of children reporting problems online over the previous year. With online safety incidents and threats on the rise it is now more critical than ever that your students not only know how to manage risk, but that school polices are in place to protect them.
Are you confident that your e-safety strategies are effectively safeguarding students?
The 5th annual Online Child Protection conference is the must-attend event of the year to gain the most up-to-date legal guidance and practical advice to ensure your students are safe online across a variety of settings. The internet is a vast landscape that provides opportunities for learning and innovation, but with those opportunities come risks ranging from bullying and grooming to identity theft. With children navigating the internet and new technologies with natural ease, you are challenged to keep one step ahead.
Experienced practitioners will provide you with proactive systems and reactive strategies to help you quickly identify threats and implement appropriate and effective solutions to protect students. Utilise your AUP and e-safety policies to provide frameworks for protection coupled with an ethos and practice of responsible use to ensure your students use the internet safely.
