e-Safety Training, support and advice for your whole school
Consultancy, advice and training tailored to your needs
e-Safety is a hugely diverse area that is continually growing. There is no silver bullet, different schools have different needs. The word ‘e-safety’ seems to have become associated with everything that is dark about the web, and this needs to change.
e-Safety is not about scaremongering, it’s about educating and empowering all users to enjoy the wonders that the internet and technology has to offer – safely!
What can I do for you?
Schools and other establishments that work with children – Strategic approach to identify any gaps and tailored action plans; policy review to ensure governance; tailored or bespoke training for all staff and senior leaders, students, governing body and parents; up-skilling for e-safety lead or those with strategic responsibility; help you engage your school community with the appropriate use of social media.
Companies and others – software or service testing and risk assessment to identify any e-safety concerns; whitepapers; appropriate use of social media training for your staff; policy assessments; e-safety training for your staff that work with children and young people; risk assessments and mitigation.
After careful consideration we decided to use Alan’s services in school primarily because of his in-depth knowledge and experience of using ICT in schools and e-safety background. Recently Alan attended a governor’s meeting to deliver an e-safety awareness session; it was clear, informative and thought-provoking. We will continue to use Alan’s services in the future across the whole school not only for e-safety but to drive the use of technology with staff and the children.Headteacher, Swineshead and Sutterton Fourfields Federation, Lincolnshire
First of all, I wanted to say how well received your visit was. It’s rare to have such unequivocal support for any consultant to the school!… but I think your straightforward and pragmatic approach was welcomed by all those that you met.Director of ICT, Southbank International School
The e-safety/EMPOWER course proved to be very informative and valuable. I would urge anyone who is an ICT Co-ordinator or delegated Safeguarding contact in your school to sign up as the course tackled a range of issues, information and strategies designed to help your school cope with the demands of modern technology and communication. I cannot rate this course highly enough.Class Teacher, Quadring Cowley and Brown's Primary School
The training was invaluable, not only reinforcing how successful our e-safety in school is but also in providing forward-thinking ideas and having opportunities for dialogue with like-minded professionals who recognise the importance of e-safety in school. During a recent Ofsted inspection, the inspector responsible for safeguarding, identified having a designated e-safety officer as a real strength, and a contributing factor to our excellent safeguarding procedures. It is training that a member of the leadership team from every school needs to go on.Headteacher, North Cockerington Primary School
