About The Webinar

Cyberbullying in 2021 for Safeguarding/Child Protection Leads | Secondary

Webinar Duration: 63 minutes (approx.)

This webinar will provide headteachers, senior leaders, safeguarding leads and all teaching staff with a renewed perspective on cyberbullying, providing practical guidance and advice on what actions schools can take to support their pupils.

As the world becomes more and more digital, so do our children’s lives. More now than ever children are connected to the internet through online games, social media and messaging platforms which means cyberbullying remains an ever-present risk. Indeed, research suggests that about 37% of young people between the ages of 12 and 17 have been bullied online. 30% have had it happen more than once.

In this webinar Cayley Jorgensen, mental health practitioner and director of FaceUp South Africa, an anonymous reporting system used to fight bullying online, provides an expert insight into what cyberbullying looks like in 2021, what impact it can have on children and what mechanisms schools can put in place to prevent and respond to incidents appropriately and support those involved.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding how cyberbullying differs from other forms of bullying and defining what sexual cyberbullying involves.

  • Recognising the signs of cyberbullying and the common changes in children’s attitudes and behaviour, both as the victim and the bully.

  • Identifying how cyberbullying impacts others and appreciating the role of the bystander, including what they can do to help.

  • Gaining practical advice on how to prevent cyberbullying and respond to incidents, including the do’s and don’ts of supporting both the victim and the bully.

  • Realising the steps to take to encourage greater reporting of cyberbullying and develop a culture of safety which encourages children to become digitally resilient.
