Most of us think that the bad things that happen online, happen to other people. Sadly, they can and do happen to people like you, in schools like yours! But there are ways to keep yourself and your pupils safe.
One of the most effective ways to protect the school community is to raise pupil and parent awareness and to train staff. Attending the E2BN Online Safety conference on 8th March 2017 will update your online safety knowledge and enable you to update colleagues back at school.
We held a similar event in Peterborough in November (in Peterborough) and it was such as success that we are repeating it in Thurrock.
The conference will include sessions on responding to extremism and understanding digital hate. There will also be advice from Stella James on what the DfE's document 'Keeping Children Safe in Education' actually requires schools to do and Ron Richardson from SWGfL will be demonstrating how the free online tool, 360 Safe, can help schools audit, track and prove the effectiveness of their online safety.
Lorin LaFave, founder of the Breck Foundation, will share the heartbreaking story of how the online grooming of her son led to his murder. All
All delegates will receive one year's free subscription to the fantastic peer-led eCadets online safety programme.
We are able to offer places to E2BN delegates at a very reasonable £70 per person. Delegates from schools outside E2BN and those from schools that have opted out of their local authority/E2BN broadband provision are very welcome to attend the conference for £90 per person
Join us on 8th March at: Ormiston Park Academy, Belhus Park Lane, Aveley, South Ockendon RM15 4RU. Registration will be at 9am and the day will finish at 14:40pm.
