Effective Strategies for Better Parental Engagement in Online Safety

In this webinar, we take a look at reasonings why schools need to engage parents with online safety and practical methods how to achieve this effectively. We look at approaches that your school take to break down the communication barriers between schools and parents. We discuss opportunities to communicate with parents in a way that will work for your school.

Webinar outcomes

  • Understand why schools need to engage parents with the topic of online safety

  • Understand what information you should keep parents up to date with and how to deliver this effectively

  • Understand when and how often that schools should engage with parents about online safety

  • Understand how to break through the communication barriers between schools and parents

  • Gather practical steps for your school to take now

For most schools, reaching out to parents, engaging them and meeting their expectations can prove to be challenging. Keeping them regularly updated is an additional challenge that schools have to deal with. As the ever changing digital world poses many dangers to children, how do we as schools, maintain our whole school approach to protect children by engaging our parents?

To gather a deeper understanding about parental engagement in schools at the moment, we surveyed over 450 schools earlier this year. Our results showed that 63% of schools found it difficult to engage parents with the topic of online safety.

Parental attitudes and behaviours towards the online world and digital devices at home can ultimately impact a child’s overall safety online. As schools, you have a legal and moral right to protect children online, making it crucial to engage the whole school community to ensure that children are safe online.

The ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ guidance states that “An effective approach to online safety empowers a school or college to protect and educate the whole school or college community in their use of technology and establishes mechanisms to identify, intervene in, and escalate any incident where appropriate.” This includes parents.

55% of 400 parents surveyed said they had never received online safety training from their school.
