    Ah.. this explains last week's Panaroma.

    Unless you're carrying the e-safety torch, I'd just read the key-findings...

    ...which I just skimmed coz they were too long.. but this looks like the most significant geek-needs-to-know bit: "Parents would prefer to get information on internet safety from their child’s school, so greater efforts should be undertaken by the education sector"

    Yes, I saw last week's panorama too. I'll save the environment and just read the key findings without resorting to printing it... wonder if they've turned it into an iBook yet?

    I didn't like that Panorama - seemed kinda lightweight & superficial.

    Read some a bit more seriously and this caught my eye: "Age differences are noteworthy: teachers’ engagement with children’s internet use is least among 9-10 year olds. Partly because the notorious Jessie Slaughter case suggests it might all be a bit too late if you only start on that when they're 11. In fact something like 7 is probably the latest I'd want to see some serious engaging.

    Yes, yes they do. And then they forget about it and panic (and/or ignore the refresher sessions we offer).

    "HALP, my son is being bullied on hotmail!!!oneoneone" (or insert various Internet happenings ranging from saying they smell on facebook to active stalking)
    OK, we sent out guidance in the form of X, Y and Z when your son joined the school, have you had a read?
    "HALP, my son is being bullied on hotmail!!!oneoneone, you need to fix this!!!oneoneone"
    Well, we do offer Internet Safety classes for parents on Adult Ed nights, aimed at keeping your kids safe and if you've specific concerns your sons form tutor is *checks timetable* available now to discuss specifics.
    "HALP, my son is being bullied on hotmail!!!oneoneone"
    Outside of school, because it's not available to students in school?
    HALP.....*cough*, yes outside of school!oneoneoneone
    *Meaningless platitudes that basically boil down to paraphrasing the guidance we gave them that they should have read before calling us*
    Oh, right......*wanders off happy*

    But we still keep reminding them. If it only sinks in with a few, I consider it a job well done.

    This one IS the school's responsibility... We have a Safeguarding responsibility beyond the school's boundaries. If bullying is reported involving one the school's pupils, it is the school's problem no matter where or how it occurs.

    I wasn't implying it isn't. It's a means of gauging the scale of the task (whether it's one of our kids being bullied by an outside kid/random internet person or between two our kids. If it's not two of our kids, the best I can hope for is that the offending account used for bullying is disabled and maybe (though the evidence wouldn't stand up in court) work out who could be behind it.

    *grumbles about the hours he's wasted preparing instructions for police on who to contact at $provider only for them to do nothing with the info*
