About The Webinar

Understanding KCSIE’s Four Cs of Online Risk

This webinar will provide designated safeguarding leads, senior leaders and teachers with an understanding of the four categories of online risk as defined by Keeping children safe in education, including what approaches schools and colleges can take to help safeguard children from harm.

Keeping children safe in education makes it a statutory requirement that schools safeguard children and young people from potentially harmful and inappropriate online material. The guidance states that whilst the breadth of issues classified within online safety is considerable and ever-evolving, they can be categorised into four areas of risk; content, contact, conduct and commerce.

In this webinar, Gary Henderson, a cyber security expert with over 20 years’ experience working in education, explains what the four Cs of online risk are, how schools can keep pupils safe and what advice they can provide parents and carers to help support a whole-school community approach.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding what the four main categories of online risk are, how they can overlap and the important contextual role that technology has to play in each area.

  • Recognising some of the different types of risk that can be associated with each category and exploring how these may manifest online.

  • Identifying ways to try and minimise or mitigate the levels of risk and what tools and techniques to try and keep children safe from harm.

  • Realising the positive aspects that technology and the online world can bring and ensuring there is a balance between limiting access and promoting positive digital citizenship.

  • Recognising how to overcome the challenges associated with the four Cs and technology and identifying the core elements required to help keep children safe online.
