Internet Safety Evening

14th May 2018
Dear Parents and Carers

E- Safety Evening

E- safety is hugely significant in today’s world, particularly where young people are involved. The internet has changed the way we live our lives, having many and varied advantages. However, it poses risk and danger for young people if it is not used responsibly, safely and sensibly. Understanding the dangers and risks are essential for us as adults if we are to protect our children in this digital age.

On Thursday 24th May, we have invited back EST, E-safety Training (http://www.esafetytraining.org/) to come into school to work with our KS2 pupils during the day and then with parents in an evening presentation.

The last time ‘The Two Johns’ were in, many parents commented upon their excellence in helping to highlight how exposed the children are to risk when using the internet, whilst also detailing what parents can do to minimise this. John and John are both ex policeman. They have an excellent reputation for being informative and knowledgeable about their subject whilst also being engaging presenters. Their messages are ‘hard- hitting’ but relevantly and appropriately adapted to suit their audience.

The talk for parents starts at 7:00pm and lasts approximately two hours. You are able to bring along friends and relatives but due to the nature of this adult presentation, children are not able to attend. However, because we want to encourage as many parents as possible to come, Mrs Newland and Mrs Colgate have kindly said they will be available to supervise Epping Upland pupils, should you be unable to sort out childcare. We will have a KS1 space and a KS2 space. This will only apply however to pupils of our school.

Should you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Yours sincerely
Sarah Hurwood
Headteacher
