Here’s what people are saying about CyberMentorPLUS.
“Students received a brilliant two-day training programme to become online safety ambassadors and peer-mentors at school. I really can’t recommend the training enough.”
Assistant Head at Cardinal Wisemen School
“Mubina has led CyberMentoring at Greenford High School, making a significant impact. Her work has been recognised by the DfE, local authority, John Lyons Charity, and schools across West London. The feedback we have received has been universally positive.
Headteacher at Greenford High School
“The pupils have been given a fantastic two day training course which empowered them to be supportive and proactive peer mentors. Our recent Ofsted commented on the Cyber Mentors helping pupils to stay safe online, they were very impressed. The CyberMentors fit into a whole school ethos of safeguarding and caring for each other.”
Pastoral Lead and Designated Child Protection Officer, Clifton Primary School
“The CyberMentor programme has proved invaluable at Durdan’s Park Primary. The recent OFSTED report highlighted their effectiveness and commented: 'Twenty pupils have been trained as ‘cyber mentors’ to help others keep safe online, and to solve any minor disputes. Pupils spoke highly of the role of the mentors and shared a commonly held view that mentors help them to resolve any problems. Pupils have a strong understanding of online safety, including the potential dangers of social media'”.
Deputy Head at Durdan’s Park Primary School
“The CyberMentors programme has been instrumental in providing our children the opportunity to share their fears, concerns and queries about online safety with their peers. They were trained superbly to be able to tell and adult when they knew they had to pass information on. Subsequently, during the course of last academic year, the school's Safeguarding team dealt with a number of online safety disclosures which prior to the programme, may never have come to light.”
Headteacher at St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School
“Having students now lead CyberMentorPLUS shows the understanding and importance the programme has to the younger generation and we hope the amazing work continues throughout more schools in the borough.”
Councillor Yvonne Johnson, cabinet member for schools and children’s services
“I’ve been working with the CyberMentors from the start and have seen their confidence sky rocket. I would recommend it to all primary and secondary schools.”
