We are really excited as during June we will now be running some newly written sessions for many year 8 and 9 students across the Basildon Area.
This is another project where we are working closely with the Basildon Community Safety Partnership and Essex Youth Services.
We have enjoyed many previous successful events with the Basildon Community Safety Team and it will be fantastic to work with everyone again.
We are also looking forward to running another evening for the Ten...Read Full Post »

We are putting out this post following our visit to a school yesterday. As most people know we are concerned about the popular app ROBLOX which is by far the most popular game played by children from 5 to 10 years of age.
We were talking to a very large group of year 1 students and we were shocked when over half of them said they were playing ROBLOX. When we spoke to Year 2 at least 70 percent of them were playing the game.
Most of these children then disclosed that they had onlin...Read Full Post »

We cant believe that we have already presented to over 1500 children since the return from the summer holidays!
So far the two most popular applications/games of concern are Musical.ly and Pokemon Go.
Parents need to make sure that the settings on their childs musical.ly account are set to private because strangers are saving childrens videos off line.
When playing Pokemon Go children need to be aware that strangers may use the game as an opportunity to start randomly talkin...Read Full Post »

We are very proud that following a recent inspection of Thurrock LSCB by OFSTED they singled out the EST Walk Online Roadshow as an example of outstanding practise their positive words have given us even further motivation to take the Roadshow out to a wider audience.
So far our roadshow has been seen by 11,000 children over the past two months taking in Basildon, Thurrock, Maldon and Brentwood along with many individual schools
Basildon Council have also just confirmed they want ...Read Full Post »

Thank you to everyone that has made the last two months an incredible experience for us.
We have managed to deliver our message, via the 'Walk Online Roadshow' to over 7000 children across Essex (I hate to think how many that averages a day)
The feedback we have been receiving has been amazing be it from Children or Adults.
We are now so busy that our diary stretches into the new school year so any thoughts of putting our feet up in the near future will have to wait.
