Last Friday, The Studio played a major role in National Child Exploitation Awareness Day.
We were joined on the day by a host of local and regional press, including the Liverpool Echo, Radio City, Bay TV and Radio Merseyside.
As well as, Jane Kennedy, Police and Crime Commissioner of Merseyside, we were also joined by Detective Superintendent Dave Brunskill from the Protecting Vulnerable People Unit of the Merseyside Police.
The theme of the day was online safety, with a particular focus placed on online gaming.
A group of year ten students and two of our sixth form students were interviewed by the press, discussing their understanding of online safety and how to approach it. As users and creators of digital technology, our students explained how they recognised the importance of e-safety.
Sixth form student, Adam, spoke about a social networking site he has designed and built, called Hive. “Whilst designing and building Hive, I recognised the importance of privacy and security needed on social networking sites.”
As a digitally-focused school, we recognise the importance of ensuring all of our students understand how to protect themselves when using the internet or digital technology. We were recognised as Outstanding for our work on e-safety in a recent Ofsted Report, which you can view here – http://thestudioliverpool.uk/ofsted/
