About The Lesson Plan

Updated for 2021-22, our interactive video lesson plans will bring your classroom to life!

Developed in line with and to support statutory policy and recommended guidance

Our brand-new lesson plans are directly aligned to and support the:

  • UKCIS ‘Education for a Connected World’ framework
  • DfE ‘Relationships education, relationships and sex education (RSE) and health education’ statutory curriculum
  • DfE ‘Teaching online safety in school’ guidance

What are they?
Based on the eight key topics outlined in the UKCIS ‘Education for a Connected World’ framework, our EYFS interactive video lessons talk to the children about online dangers in a fun and engaging way, providing a truly immersive experience. Each video lesson has a range of accompanying activities to support learning and helps to provide young children with the knowledge to protect themselves from online risks.

The problem: “How do we talk about online safety to children in EYFS setting? How do we capture their attention and imagination?” As we liaised with schools around the country, it quickly became apparent that teaching staff were facing an uphill struggle in trying to convey messages around online safety to younger children in a way that they felt engaged and with which they could relate. This was particularly acute in an early years setting.

The solution: Schools spoke, so we listened. We soon realised that flat lesson content alone was not the answer. We needed to be better. We needed to innovate. We needed something that children could relate to… We needed someone children could relate to. So we went out and we went big. We brought in one of the most recognised stars in children's TV and delivered her straight into the child’s classroom. The global face of ‘Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience’ and ‘Peppa Pig Live’, Emma Grace Arends helped us to create beautifully clear, fun, engaging and imaginative video lesson plans that deliver serious messages around online safety almost effortlessly to young children. For all the amazing skills that teachers possess, they are not entertainers... and children love to be entertained.

Based on the 8 topics outlined in the UKCIS “Education for a Connected World” Framework, our lesson plans cover:

  • Self Image & Identity
  • Online Relationships
  • Online Reputation
  • Online Bullying
  • Managing Online Information
  • Health, Wellbeing & Lifestyle
  • Privacy & Security
  • Copyright & Ownership

Our lesson plans also support schools to deliver their statutory requirements around online safety as part of the DfE Relationships and sex education (RSE) and health education curriculum
