About The Webinar

Engaging Parents and Carers in Online Safety | Early Years

This webinar will provide early years managers, leaders, teachers and practitioners with practical guidance and advice on how they can engage parents and carers in online safety to support their safeguarding and child protection requirements in line with DfE guidance and best practice.

All early years providers should be familiar with their online safety requirements as outlined in KCSIE and ‘Safeguarding children and protecting professionals in early years settings: online safety considerations’ – both documents emphasise the need for parental engagement and regular communication, providing the knowledge and support parents and carers need to help keep children safe online.

In this webinar, Beth Davies, an experienced safeguarding practitioner and trainer, will explore how early years settings can engage parents and carers in the online safety discussion, look at how to overcome common barriers and consider a number of case studies and real-world examples.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding setting’s responsibilities to engage parents and carers in online safety as outlined in key DfE guidance, legislation and policy.

  • Recognising the most common obstacles to engaging parents and carers and developing an empathetic mindset to help support ways in overcoming potential barriers.

  • Identifying practical ways to engage parents and carers using a wide range of techniques and taking into account different learning styles.

  • Deeping an understanding of why some families might be ‘harder to reach’ and developing creative ways or more tailored ideas to get them involved.

  • Through analysis of real-world examples and case studies, understand the benefit of developing a ‘drip effect’ that meets parents and carers specific needs.
