Social Media in Schools  |  Friday 17 November 2017 at 2.00pm at the Tiverton Hotel, Tiverton

The use of social media by schools continues to be a hot topic – done well, social media can enhance the learning experience of students, improve communications with parents and serve as an effective yet inexpensive marketing tool. Despite the many benefits to using social media, in practice there are also a number of challenges and risks that your senior leadership team should be prepared for.

Aimed at headteachers and senior leaders, this seminar looked at the pros and cons of social media and focused on ways you can mitigate the risk of social media in your school. Delivered by Russell Holland – Barrister in Michelmores’ Education team.
