Safeguarding Children in the Digital World

Date: 17 November 2020

Time: 6pm 

Venue: Virtual Event 

During the Covid-19 lockdown, there have been heightened concerns nationally about the safety and well-being of young people in the digital environment.

On the 17 November at 6pm, we will be offering an interactive online workshop for parents, looking at the theme of safeguarding children in the digital world.

The parental workshop will provide practical hints, tips and activities to help and support parents.  We will look specifically at particular trends and themes in online safety since lockdown and will be seeking to offer relevant and up to date information, advice and guidance to parents in recognising online risks and keeping children safe. We will also be offering resources to support conversations about digital safeguarding in the home.

To deliver this workshop, we have invited a Digital safeguarding specialist, Kat Howard, to offer her expertise and explore how we can keep children safe online. Kat Howard has been working in and with schools for over 17 years. During her time as a teacher she taught in primary, secondary and the independent sector. She has consulted with many schools to develop their understanding of online safety and supported school leadership teams to implement and embed policies, procedures, training and committees. She is passionate about the importance of online safety in schools and the wider community, and supports schools with advice and support on a day to day basis. During this workshop, Kat will give you lots of practical hints, tips and activities to support your children in this environment.
