About The Course

Annual Level 1 Online Safety Course for Parents & Carers (2020-21)


Duration: 100 mins (approx)

Online safety in schools is of paramount importance. As the online world evolves, so do both the online risks facing our children and the relevant legislation, both statutory and non-statutory, which directs and guides how schools should meet their online safety requirements.

The role of Parents and Carers

The first line of defence in keeping children safe online are parents and carers. Online risks do not start and stop at the school gates and encouraging and supporting parents to become involved in their child’s online safety at home will ensure they are receiving the most complete protection they possibly can.

What you will learn

Delivered wholly through video, you will learn about a wide range of online dangers across three main areas:

  • Unsafe communications
    Online relationships; fake profiles; online bullying; online grooming; child sexual exploitation; sexual violence & harassment; sexting and live streaming.
  • Effects to mental health, wellbeing and lifestyle
    Online vs offline identity; social media & mental health; device addiction; online challenges; overspending; online gambling and radicalisation.
  • Managing online information
    Online reputation; age-inappropriate content; fraud (online); fake news; targeted advertising; personal data and the dark web.

You will learn about each online danger, what the risks are around each danger, potential signs and what parents, carers and trusted adults can do to help ensure their children stay safe online.

Pop ups

So, this morning, my daughter was doing a search online and a pop up came up, even though we have pop up blockers, she ran upstairs to tell me that an pop up came up and it needed immediate attention because there was time limit on it. I came down immediately and told her never to click on pop ups and I closed the window and the search she was doing. I was able to do this calmly because of the courses I watched that was offered here on online safety. Thank you!

Online Safety Course for Parents & Carers (2019-20) - Review

This course is very useful for parents to make us aware of the risks when using the internet. Some subjects could be scary so it's good to get some knowledge to be able to talk to children about those risks and get protected as much as we can and enjoy our time online.

Very informative and helpful. Having a teenager who uses social media this course has provided me with some handy information about keeping her as well as her younger siblings safe whilst they are online. Highly recommend this for anyone who has children who use any form of online tools.
