The most common concerns I hear from schools are:

  • Cost of online safety training.
  • Online safety expertise – how do you keep up to date?
  • Getting all staff and governors together for training when time is already difficult.
  • Poor understanding of the spaces children are in: games, YouTube and social media.
  • How do you engage with children in the classroom about online safety?
  • How do you develop a whole school approach?

Online safety has evolved over the years into a huge area. 

Time, money, what do you keep up to date with, where is that advice coming from, is it based on good research and experience, how do you engage parents and what with?

Part of the problem is that online safety crosses over into many areas, e.g. PSHE (the most important area), so it can’t be treated as a bespoke subject, and neither can it be treated as a technology issue. Technology is predominantly the mode of transport, behaviour is key. But to understand behaviour you also need to understand the spaces that children are in.

Online Safety Pro will help you with all of this and much more.

Clear and pragmatic with lots of opinion backed up by experience and real examples. Totally changed the way I think about online safety and my approach to it.

Alan Mackenzie specialises in online safety and has been working in schools nationally and abroad since 2007.

Working with children, staff, parents, governors, police, charities and much more he brings a wealth of clear, pragmatic experience and advice concerning the risks and opportunities in the areas where children are most likely to be: games, YouTube and social media.
