gang activities on school computers, and we’re really keen to extend our presence here. We
are already building new channel partnerships and we’re looking for resellers that
demonstrate commitment to and a passion for education IT and the real life benefits it can

Valentine comments: “E-safety is an ongoing problem as demonstrated by the number of
stories we see related to bullying or students accessing inappropriate images and content
online. Students’ online safety is a primary concern of ours and Education Pro enables
schools to proactively deal with e-safety on a daily basis, giving teachers control of the issue.
“We want to reach as many schools as possible to help them keep pupils safe online and
that’s why we’ve decided to extend our presence through a channel of resellers. It’s the most
effective way to reach as many schools as possible.”
