E-safety & Cyberbullying – The challenge schools face everyday
15 online child sex crimes committed every day
5,363 child sex crimes had an online element
57 % of 2,200 children surveyed say they have been bullied online
Offenders are exploiting the internet to target children
Cyberbully victims can feel isolated and alone and often do not know where to seek help and support
Recent surveys shows over half of children experiencing online problems wouldn’t tell their parents
Schools face an ever increasing challenge keeping children safe both in the real and online world. In the online world dangers are much more difficult to spot and children often take risks that they would not normally take in the real world.
As professionals, we need to face the fact that children of all ages will use social media and chat rooms. It is not going to stop and by facing these facts we can, at least, prepare them for their online adventures. By giving children the knowledge to spot dangers signs along with ways to protect themselves if those dangers should ever appear.
Two events to empower your children and your school
E-safety & Cyberbullying
The aim of this event is to make sure children know about the perils of going online, how to spot the danger signs and what to do about them. Cyberbullying is also an issue and to some extent goes hand in hand with e-safety.
We look at children’s access to the internet, what they like to do, play and watch. We talk about the good side of going online, along with the many dangers of online chatrooms and social media apps.
If your school opted to have an anonymous survey about children’s internet use, we will use the results throughout the day. They can later be used by the school to tailor existing e-safety documents and lessons. This event is a full day.
Sexting, Fake News & Radicalisation
Recent surveys show that children are now the main producers of naked, semi naked and inappropriate images all of which can be easily shared on social media. The aim of this lesson is to explain to children the dangers and downside of engaging in such activities.
Fake news seems to fit in perfectly with social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook. In this lesson we look at how to check if a fake news story is real, we also look at two specially designed fake news websites and point out why one is a joke, but the other is much more dangerous.
Fake news fits in perfectly with radicalisation. We look at the link between fake news & radicalisation and the part social media has to play. This is a half day session for Year 5 & 6 only.
Both events meets the schools mandatory obligations of Keeping Children Safe in Education and evidence of this day can be used in any future Ofsted inspection. You will receive a certificate for the school reception, badge(s) for your school website and appendix for the school safeguarding, e-safety & cyberbullying policies.
This is an event for everyone and the school should encourage parents and carers to attend, further enhancing the schools partnership and meeting the concerns of e-safety and cyberbullying in the community.
Why not make each lesson a “drop in” for parents and carers. This would give the community a opportunity to see the school at work and at the same time allow them to gain some useful help and information regarding e-safety and cyberbullying.
