It is also designed to improve the e-safety outcomes and behaviour of pupils, whilst encouraging children to act more responsibly creating a better environment for learning. Utilising the service can also help schools attain a higher Ofsted standard based upon "Safeguarding Children", whilst also supporting a schools' legal duty of care.For more information, please visit http://www.redstor.com/esafety.html or give us a call on 0118 951 5200.
