Online Safety Training for Parents & Carers

Many parents use technology widely today but still worry about what their children do online. Most children will manage their online lives well and build their own coping mechanisms just as they do with real life threats. They do however use the technology often in different ways to adults and this can bring its own problems.

This session provides parents with a window into the current popular technologies and how young people utilise them. Demonstrating the massive positives and potential pitfalls, the interactive presentation provides parents with advice, coping strategies and resources to help them understand and engage with their child’s online lives. Duration 90 mins.

  • Session Resources

    We know schools find it difficult to get parents to come along to these sessions so we have put together some tools to help you get more parents through the doors. Over the years we have gathered some useful hints and tips to help you promote your parents evening and ensure it is well attended. Here are some suggestions you might like to try:

    Letter Template

    Flyer/Poster

    SMS - Use SMS to get your message out as this can be very effective with parents.

    Raffle - We have had experience of schools gaining success from holding a raffle on the evening. Do you know of a local business that could sponsor the event and in turn offer an enticing prize?

  • Survey

    The exciting and unique element to our parent sessions is that they can be tailored completely by using a short pupil survey which will give the consultant details specific to your school and children. The results can be very interesting and enlightening. Most significantly, these provide us with an insight into the online habits and behaviour of the children in your school and the results, anonymised, are presented to the parents are specific to their children, and not generic results.

    The preference is a whole school questionnaire but the minimum we ask is at least a class size (30+). We ask that the survey be completed at least one week prior to the session (should only take 5 minutes) in order to allow assimilation of the data. The survey can be accessed at the below link. Information gained from the survey will not be used to identify any school without permission and any research will be strictly anonymised.
