About The Webinar

The Role of the Mental Health Lead in Online Safety and Safeguarding

Webinar Duration: 52 minutes (approx.)

This webinar will provide mental health leads, safeguarding leads and school leaders with expert guidance and support on embedding the role of the mental health lead into a whole school approach to online safety and safeguarding children online.

‘Keeping children safe in education’, makes it clear that mental health should be interwoven into safeguarding provision. This includes online safety. Children are vulnerable to a range of online risks, many of which can impact their confidence, self-esteem and wellbeing, so it’s important that mental health leads work closely with the safeguarding team to bring an additional level of support.

In this webinar Anna Bateman, mental health and wellbeing expert who works in an advisory role for the DfE, will explore the role of the mental health lead in keeping children safe online, establishing positive relationships, building empathy, developing digital resilience and why they must form part of the wider safeguarding remit.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding why mental health leads have such an important part to play in educating and supporting children who experience online harm.

  • Recognising how the online world can impact the mental health of children and young people and some of the key challenges facing schools.

  • Identifying key areas that mental health leads can support a whole school approach to online safety, including delivery of the RSHE curriculum.

  • Realising how to develop an ethos and environment in school to promote a culture of support which can help to identify concerns early and improve children’s wellbeing.

  • Recognising how mental leads can support the development of empathy in children, remove stigmas and stereotypes and promote online safety to the wider school community.
