Feedback about NEN and our providers


I thought it was one of the best (entertaining, informative) sessions we have ever had at Senior Staff Forum. He so clearly is very knowledgeable with regards to the subject area & presented extremely well.


Brilliant talk from @simfin - thought provoking and engaging from beginning to end. Such an important topic.

Fab session today at West Park Academy! Thank you so much Simon. I've shared your FB page with parents and added a note to try and encourage people to read your page to educate themselves and their children. Thank you again :-)


One of the best (esafety) workshops I have seen at #pelc10 – jam packed full of ideas discussions and great videos.

Primary school

I'm one of the y8 pupils and I just wanted to say thank you, your slides were really good and when I got home I deleted my other facebook account and made a new one with only REAL friends, I have started to focus on people I am Really friends with, that was the best E-safety speech I've heard 

'Best thing I did, signing up to this page. Thank you for the steady stream of advice.'

I've not met anyone who speaks about online safety in a more meaningful, thoughtful and powerful way than @simfin

We had an informative, balanced, entertaining e-safety update today. Not often you can use all those words in one sentence.

6th Form Teacher

Thank you again for your brilliant presentation – I have already received some excellent feedback from staff

Special School

The feedback was excellent, our young people expressed the opinion that it was on a level that was suited to them and gave them an extra awareness of the dangers and pitfalls. Simon comes over as enthusiastic and passionate on the subject.

Nothing like I expected. I've had basic online training awareness in the past but nothing like this. Well presented, funny, thought provoking and interesting.

The level of student engagement in what could have been a boring topic spoke volumes about the level of commitment Simon has for this important element of their education.
