    My sincere apologies. As ever the comment was ment entirely in jest and wasn't supposed to be taken seriously. As I've side else where unless I am either a) answering a technical query or b) asking a technical query then 90% of my posts/comments should be taken for what they are - harmless fun. Yes they may be a little puerile, it doesn't bother me, if it puts a wry smile on someones face then I consider it a job well done.

    On the other hand if I cause or have caused offense then that was never the intent and all I can do is offer my apologies. Sorry (now where is that 'hang your head in shame' smilie?).

    Thanks for the apology tmcd35. Just bear in mind that some subjects are more likely to cause offence than others ... and as school staff we should all be taking 'Safeguarding Children' VERY seriously. Ofsted are certainly taking that view at the moment.

    You shouldn't have to experience something like this first hand before you take it seriously. I only did my e-Safety course 10 days ago. Thank heavens I did.

    I'm not trying to offend anyone here at all, just merely to shine a different light. You say we have to take e-safety VERY seriously. I say we have to take terrorism VERY seriously too, but sometimes you have to have a laugh in order not to cry.

    Take for example the American's - 911 was a painful time for them, but you see them joking about it now. Not because of a lack of respect, but because if they didn't then the terrorists have won.

    I'm sure no offense was meant from TMCD35 and I know you said "some posts can be more offensive than others". Some posts are bound to touch a nerve with certain members but how far do we have to cut this thing down? Can we not have a jest and play anymore?

    Maybe it's TMCD35 finds it offensive that you read into "The internet's not safe - it's got people like me terrorising it" too much and painted him with a tarred brush.

    Like I said - I'm not attempting to offend/troll. But how sensitive do we have to be?!

    I found out that one of the teachers in my old school where I was taught has recently been imprisoned for 6 months for grooming teenage girls and displaying himself to them via webcam... Seemed like a normal bloke too.

    So, it is an incredibly important topic.

    Join the club, hardly anyone here takes it seriously, I had to ram it up the proverbial of the HT just to get it squeezed into an assembly today!

    I'm in the process of trying to persuade the HT to let me become the e-safety officer so things can be done properly and people actually start to care!

    I rarely take offense at anything in these forums - lifes to short I understand were Elsiegee is coming from and I think she knows I ment no offense in the original comment.

    The problem is, different people will naturally take offense at different things depending on their own life experiences and view points. If I stop to think 'will this offend anyone' I'd never post anything. Not because everything I type is naturally controversual and designed to offend anyone who merely glimpses at the webpage - but because it's far too easy type anything that another person may take offense to for what ever reason.

    I made a comment that I thought was funny, It offended someone for an unforseen and unintentional reason, I apologised, time to move on. In fact it's time to go home, get out the office, maybe have a drink or two and generally chillax.

    (Chillax - I like that word - Chillax aahhhhhhhh.)

    Tell them if they fail safe guarding then they go into special measures as number of schools have found out.

    Absolutely. IIRC schools have to achieve at least a 'Good' in Safeguarding Children otherwise their efforts elsewhere will mean nothing.
