Experts team up for safeguarding in schools & GDPR compliance event

28th June 2017

Whether it’s Snapchat’s new ‘Snap Map’ feature (advice from the NSPCC here), which allows users to see their contacts’ geographical location, or concerns around preparing for GDPR, it’s no surprise that schools are feeling the pressure when it comes to how they keep students safe. Complying with the Department for Education’s Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSiE) guidance around ‘appropriate monitoring’, plus Ofsted requirements, are also key concerns for Network Managers and DSLs. When it comes to safeguarding in schools, staff are increasingly turning to a best practice ‘joined-up’ approach to online safety.

That’s why we’re pleased to be hosting two seminars this autumn, featuring an impressive line-up of key industry experts in the online safety and safeguarding in schools arena. Designed to bring IT teams and Designated Safeguarding Leads together, this event provides an in-depth explanation of the latest online safety trends, national guidance and legal obligations, as well as hands-on training related to your own school’s policies. The afternoon of training, developed and delivered by online safety consultant Charlotte Aynsley, has been specially crafted to help education professionals effectively implement an ‘appropriate monitoring’ system and adopt a whole school approach to online safety, in line with national guidelines.
