About The Webinar

How to Develop and Implement an Online Safety Policy for Nurseries and Early Years Settings

Webinar Duration: 40 minutes (approx.)

This webinar will provide nurseries and early years settings’ managers, deputy managers and room leaders with practical guidance and advice on developing and implementing an effective online safety policy in line with statutory guidance and best practice.

All nursery and early years settings should have a clearly defined policy around safeguarding children online. The advance of the digital age means children are experiencing the online world from as young as 3 and 4, with research finding that 78% of 3–4-year-olds use a tablet to go online, 39% a smartphone and 10% a laptop. Children are increasingly being exposed to the potential of online harm which means online safety must begin as early as possible.

In this webinar, Konstantina Moustaka, professional development and EYFS coordinator with over 16 years’ experience working as a nursery and early years practitioner, will explore what settings need to know about safeguarding children online and how to develop an online safety policy that defines roles for staff and helps implement practice at home.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identifying the online safety risks for children in nurseries and recognising the different challenges faced in early years settings.

  • Understanding statutory safeguarding guidance and best practice that will dictate what needs to be included in an online safety policy for nurseries and early years settings.

  • Recognising the importance of implementing online safety practices at home from an early age, and how nurseries and early years settings can play a pivotal role in supporting this.

  • Identifying the different roles of staff members in a nursery or early years setting, and how each one has their duties and responsibilities outlined within the policy.

  • Appreciating additional sections that can strengthen the policy to ensure the highest level of online safety in the nursery or early years setting.
