Equip your pupils to stay safe online, ensure a robust safeguarding culture and raise awareness of specific vulnerabilities.


Why is this conference relevant?

Recent statistics from the Digital Youth Index report reflect the ongoing importance of online safety education and leadership as part of our safeguarding provision in schools. 

'Around 1 in 4 young people have experienced violence, trolling or abuse, and/or sexual content online.'

'3 in 10 young people find their use of the internet and digital devices negatively affects their sleep (29%).

This number is higher among LGBTQ+ young people (44%), as well as those with a mental health condition (41%).'

This interactive, digital conference brings a practical focus to online safeguarding. Gain tools to support pupils and their families and ensure a whole school approach.
