North Lincolnshire schools invited to anti-bullying and safeguarding conference
NORTH Lincolnshire schools are being invited to a conference about cyber bullying and safeguarding.
The conference, specifically targeting Yorkshire and the Humber, has invited head teachers and IT coordinators from primary schools to find out more about how to tackle cyber bullying.
The conference, at the Mercure Grange Park Hotel in Hull, will feature Sharon Girling OBE, who, during her 30 years service with the Police, specialised in addressing international internet enabled paedophilia.
She said: "Ofsted requires schools to demonstrate outstanding e-safety measures. The Tech4Schools conference presents a number of options available to ensure primary schools protect their pupils against intimidation from their peers. By looking beyond online safety to offline outcomes we can use what we know to protect children better.

"Unfortunately, blocking and filtering alone - the systems most commonly used by schools - cannot address very serious behavioural issues like bullying and grooming, issues with the potential to really impact on a child's welfare."
"In my presentation we will consider all online concerns from grooming to pro-suicide sites and together we will explore the issues: what do statistics tell us? How worried should we be? What are the solutions? Do young people prefer to get help online? and perhaps most importantly, what is the key to successful early intervention?"
