Online Safety in Schools Conference
“While social media clearly provides some great benefits to children, it is also exposing them to significant risks emotionally, particularly as they approach year.” - Anne Longfield, Children’s Commissioner for England
Online safety has been described by Ofsted as the school's ability to protect and educate pupils and staff in their use of technology and have the appropriate mechanism to intervene and support any incident where appropriate.
While the internet is a great resource, it is important that children and young people are protected from the risks they may encounter. Using the internet with children and young people can be an incredibly rewarding experience. Incorporating internet safety themes across the curriculum, and celebrating the benefits of new technologies, can enhance learning in so many ways.
Join us for the Online Safety in Schools Conference where experts from across the sector explore how educators can keep their students safe online whilst using the internet to improve teaching and learning.
