The rise of the Internet brings great benefits but, for our young people, also great risks. Enrichment activities, increasing parental knowledge and highlighting the dangers of the Internet and social media can all help, read on for more on how we help young people and parents stay safe online…

The Internet has given us the power to have information at our fingertips, at the click of a button or the tap of a screen. The benefits are huge but, much like in other areas of education, our children need relevant guidance in how to be safe and responsible to minimise the risks they face. I've developed a real passion for raising e-safety awareness and have never been more keen to spread the word to our children and parents alike.

Social media guide – for parents

The use of social media amongst younger children continues to grow and with it comes a minefield of potential issues when it’s not used responsibly. Experience has told us that often parents are unsure as to their child’s social media use and the real dangers present when left unchecked. This guide aims to highlight different platforms of social media, how to safeguard your child, from privacy settings and monitoring through to basic features of more common platforms. The guide will also highlight signs to look out for, such as typical grooming behaviours and online bullying.

Social media intensive – for students

A quick online search may return a number of workshops and activities when it comes to e-safety, though nothing quite as intense with regards to social media. This activity session, whether conducted as a mentoring/coaching session or a workshop, looks at reputation management, dangers of sharing content online, social media posts, privacy and the links between social media and mental health in young people.

E-safety workshops and enrichment sessions – for students

The importance of online safety is rapidly growing and ever changing. Using guidance developed by the NSPCC and CEOP, this service helps support students in their own safe use of the internet for any purpose, including reputation management, digital footprint, FOMO (fear of missing out), online resilience, detoxing and more. Sessions can be run on an individual, small-group or class activity basis.
