Internet Safety Evening Thursday 10th October 2019
On Thursday 10th October 2019 we are delighted to be welcoming Sharon Girling OBE into school to lead us in a day of e-safety awareness and training for pupils, staff and parents.
The safety of our pupils is always at the forefront of our minds. In today’s day and age, teaching about e-safety and being safe when using technology, is of vital importance at both home and school. Online abuse is any type of abuse that happens on the web, whether through social networks, playing online games or using mobile devices. Children and young people may experience cyberbullying, grooming, sexual abuse, sexual exploitation or emotional abuse. They may be at risk of online abuse from people they know, as well as strangers. Below are some statistics that you may not be aware of:
Sharon Girling OBE is a former police officer who retired from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) following thirty years’ service. She was at the forefront of a national and international response to online child abuse and developed the processes and procedures that led to the creation of CEOP. She is currently conducting training programmes for schools, law enforcement and businesses both nationally and internationally. Sharon has been awarded an OBE by Her Majesty the Queen for her services to policing.
PLEASE NOTE: THE CONTENT OF THE PARENT SESSION IS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN – ONLY ADULTS MAY ATTEND.
