  • Could I just say on behalf of myself and my head teacher a huge thank you for delivering the e-safety training on Wednesday night.

    One staff member sent me an email to say: "Can I just say how much I enjoyed the training, I thought it was so engaging and relevant. That's the first time I've come out of an e safety training and actually felt directly effected."

    I feel the training was definitely relevant.
