Re: Virtual School Dangers ...
Yes we have all sorts of 'safeguarding' training regarding students below 19 (mine are mostly 16 to 18 with a handful older) plus prevent nonsense - albeit this training is generally just a point and click automated set of questions online (and quite easy to cheat with a bit of jiggery pokery). It is an important part of the job, but i use my judgement and social experience first: there have been a several times where i would probably have been expected to get in touch with prevent or social services about a student on the face of it, but so far have never felt it would help with the individuals in question (doesn't mean i did nothing).
