Reviews

'"If you keep doing the same things, you will get the same results." This is so apt when it comes to working with teenagers about safe online behaviours. We need to take a fresh approach to this rapidly evolving concern and this book provides just that. Bursting with useful resources and clear explanations, it is a must have.'
- Heather Jeavons, DGfL Senior Education Development Manager, Dudley Grid for Learning, Saltwells EDC, UK

'As the perfect complement to Making Your Primary School E-safe, Adrienne Katz has once again cut straight to the heart of the matter. This timely book will quickly become an indispensable and topical resource for any teacher or family member eager to keep children secure in a cyber world where it's all too easy to feel several miles behind the young people in our care. Covering all the bases, she defines just what are the comprehensive issues in lucid, readable language leaving you confident to respond appropriately to even the severest of challenges. Importantly she empowers you to put any necessary safeguards in place to make safe, whilst still great fun, all our young people's time online.'

'Adrienne has taken on the monumental task of bringing together all the strands of e-safety in a secondary setting in this book. The advice and resources she provides will help both staff and pupils in secondary schools to become responsible digital citizens and, importantly, to stay safe. In my work as anti-bullying coordinator, I am acutely aware of the need for this book and fully support the ideas that it promotes. I will certainly be recommending it to the schools I work with.'
- Lorna Naylor, Anti-bullying Coordinator, Children, Families and Cultural Services, Nottinghamshire County Council

It is full of up to date information, practical guidance and great activities for staff and students - all from a writer who is incredibly well informed by years of experience, training staff and listening to children and young people on the subject matter.'
