Event Description

West of England ICT Conference - Online Safety Special

We are delighted to announce a special focus to our annual conference this year. We know online safety is
an area of concern for schools following the changes made to the DfE Keeping Children Safe in Education document and the Ofsted emphasis on safeguarding. Working with David Wright from Safer Internet Centre we have arranged an online safety conference. This will take place on Monday 12 June at BAWA, Bristol.

We are delighted to have the following high profile, national keynote speakers booked to speak:
  • Ken Corish - Safer Internet Centre
  • John Nixon - Ofsted 
  • Michael Bell - Head of Safeguarding at DfE – the owner of KCSiE
  • Will Gardner - Childnet

The format of the conference will be different to the ICT conferences of previous years. There
will be keynote speakers in the morning followed by workshops and an exhibition in the afternoon. There is the opportunity to attend two workshops from our selection:

1A - Online reputation
1B - Parental responsibility in online safety
1C - From knowing to doing: building an active online safety curriculum in a primary school
1D - Infectious online safety for secondary schools
1E - Live online safety radio – tips from young people at Westwood and Iford Primary School

2A - What do the 360 Degree Safe Tool and Online Safety Mark assessments tell us about good online
safety practice in schools
2B - Sexting; real life case studies, best practice response and the lessons we have learnt.
2C - Data protection in schools: Ransomware and other issues
2D - Using peer education to improve e-safety in schools
2E - What Governors need to know
The conference is a must for school Headteachers, Governors, Senior Leaders and Subject Leaders with a responsibility for Safeguarding or Computing. It is also relevant for teachers of computing who need to address their statutory responsibilities of teaching about online safety. Staff working in social care will also find this beneficial.  


Our conference has the following aims:

  • To provide up to date information from national, regional and local leaders working in the field of online safety 
  • To improve leadership and teaching in safeguarding young people online
  • To network and share ideas with other leaders
  • To support schools in ensuring that their online safety processes are as robust as possible 
  • To share research findings
  • To develop teacher knowledge about online safety
