 'The Anti-Social Network' has received positive feedback and acknowledgements from a range of professional organisations, including:



"Thank you for sending across the film, we all really enjoyed watching it here. It is fantastic that you are giving attention to the issues of internet safety, and educating children about the dangers of the online world.

We found the film very well-conceived, written, performed and produced. The courtroom setting with the students in the different roles is brilliant – we think it will really resonate with the experience and moral reasoning ability of primary age children. Some of the ways the children get around adult control is a nice, non-patronizing touch, and should help the children connect with the messages portrayed.

It’s a fantastic film, and we’re sure it was a brilliant experience for those who took part – some budding film makers of the future no doubt!

We wish you all the best with your future projects."

Laura Murphy

Senior communications officer ChildLine/Services for children and families, NSPCC

"As you are aware we were very grateful to receive your fantastic film and have promoted it via Twitter. This is how Insafe (, the coordinators of the network of all 30 European Safer Internet Centres, came across it and really liked it too.

They have asked me to approach you to see if you may be willing to write a short article for their monthly newsletter to tell people about why and how you put the film together, to tell its story really!

The Insafe newsletter is a general interest newsletter on online safety issues. Published ten times each year, each newsletter focuses on a particular theme - such as cyberbullying, engaging youth, or Back to School - along with more general news items, resources, events, surveys and reports. 

The newsletter is published (and subsequently archived) on the Insafe website, and circulated via email to in excess of 2,500 registered subscribers. You can see an example - or indeed subscribe yourself - at This would provide avenue to promote the great work you are doing!"

Louiza Jeffcoat, Project Manager - UK Safer Internet Centre


"Thanks for your email and great to meet you last week at the CyberSmart Awards. It is fantastic to see your (and obviously the children’s) work (and energy) with online safety and something that clearly we advocate. We will certainly look through the materials, please do send over details of the next project also."


David Wright, Director UK Safer Internet Centre

"What an achievement! I chair the Safer Schools Partnership and would want to show the Year 5 film to the partnership. It is also something I would want the Children Services Headteachers Policy Group to see - even better if you could come and talk to it.

Perhaps I could come across sometime to discuss distribution

Well done to you and all of your team

Hugh Disley

Head of Early Intervention People Group, Warwickshire County Council

"This is brilliant ...........   Can I commend your positive approach to this growing issues. 

I will look to post this on our force web page with your permission - as I firmly believe in the true value of social media. 

I wonder if we could meet at your earliest convenience to discuss the usability of the existing elearning platform and if you would be interested in supporting the primary school sector on the County Safer Schools Board.  I am currently working on an on line programme linked to citizenship awards and would value your views on how best to engage with schools in the primary sector."

George Stepney, Community Protection Manager - Warwickshire Police


I just thought I would let you know that I used your school’s production of The Anti-Social Network during a number of presentations to around 500 Primary school children as well as teaching staff, during the anti-bullying week.


 The feedback I had in relation to the film was first rate, the questions I took following the screening demonstrated that the children took in the messages delivered.


Can I commend the school and its pupils for the excellent resource that is not only relevant, but enjoyable to watch time and again.


PCSO6176 David Martin


Warwickshire Police Safer Schools Officer, Warwick District 















"Thank you for sending us through this brilliant film, we really do think it’s very well done and has a real dramatic element to it. It’s evident that the pupils worked so hard in creating it and it’s great to see them engaging in what we know is a really important issue in all schools.

Let us know how you get on with the development of this project, and good luck with the travelling theatre production idea – it sounds really exciting."

Caroline Hurst
Childnet International Education Officer
