Anti-bullying conference

Published Thursday, 10 October 2013

Media/ Photo Opportunity 9:15 am – 12:30pm, Friday 11th October 2013 Anti- bullying conference ‘The future is ours- safe, fun and connected’ Millfield Arts Centre, Silver Street, Edmonton N18

Cyber- bullying, new technology and the risks they pose to children and young people are among the serious issues in a presentation to be made by Luke Brant-Savage from Education Child Protection at Enfield Council’s Anti- Bullying conference this year.

He will be explaining how the police’s Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) unit operates; how CEOP educates children making them aware of bullying and abuse on the internet; and how they can report anything suspicious.

Cllr Ayfer Orhan, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said, “Bullying in any form is not tolerated in our schools, colleges and work places, but children and young people are particularly exposed to risks.

“This conference deals with the current issues that get reported in the news: cyber-bullying; sexuality and homophobia; and disabilities – all targets that bullies choose. This conference demonstrates the work that is going on throughout our schools to combat bullying and provides information and advice for those attending.”

In a packed programme of presentations from experts, young people and schools performances the conference not only demonstrates the extent of bullying and those particularly targeted, but also shows how schools and families can deal with it.
