Brett Laniosh, Catshill Learning Partnerships

Safer Internet Day is an ideal time to run activities which promote E-Safety messages in school and to your community. Online Safety Consultant Brett Laniosh,  whose work has been endorsed by Police and Crime Commissioners, will be sharing some great ideas that schools can implement on the day.

“I will be focusing on parental involvement and sharing proven strategies (including free recommended resources) to involve parents and the wider community.  I’ll explain how to

  • set up digital leaders as part of pupil voice
  • use showcase lessons involving both pupils and parents
  • include key elements in your E-safety policies
  • implement effective password strategies
  • combine computational thinking and E-Safety by using Scratch!

This will be a feature rich presentation with lots of great ideas that you can use straight away in school.”


James Dickson, Piota

Improving Parental Engagement 

“We will use examples and statistics from some of the 150 school apps Piota supplied in 2015 to demonstrate how a fully native mobile app can improve parental engagement.  Feedback from parents highlights the easy access to key information and messages, richer understanding about what their child is doing at school, the control they have over the information flow, and the positive surprise of receiving something from their schools which makes their lives simpler!”


Martin Bailey, Animate2Educate

Martin Bailey will bring you 'Success with Primary Computing'; Top tips, activities and apps for bringing the Primary Computing Curriculum to life in a fun and creative way, based on Martin’s own work in schools throughout the North of England and beyond.
