Learn how to protect your school from Cyberbullies
Cyberbullying and child protection – what school leaders need to know.
Friday 13th July, Prospero House, London
TES is hosting an important one day conference designed specifically for Headteachers and School leaders. The law relating to safeguarding pupils and cyberbullying can take schools by suprise. The fact that cyberbullying often takes place in the home does not exonerate schools of the clear legal duty to safeguard and protect allpupils and to manage their behaviour both on and off the school premises.
The conference programme is designed to provide school leaders with a practical and useful toolkit of information and ideas covering all aspects of cyberbullying.
