Growing Up Online: E-Safety Workshop

A workshop for KS2 parents, children and families.

From 6:00 pm until 7:45 pm

Location - Lower School Hall

Following on from our successful E-Safety week and as part of our school's on-going commitment to raising awareness of E-safety, we are holding a 'Growing Up Online' e-safety workshop. The workshop will provide parents, children, siblings and wider family in Key Stage 2 with an invaluable practical session to develop awareness of how to stay safe on-line. 

Feedback from people attending a Growing Up Online workshop at other schools include:

"Very informative and a helpful reminder with lots of practical advice and links to resources – really important to keep up to date."
"Very good. I’m so glad I came. I learnt a lot I can use at home with the kids"...
"Excellent workshop – made me think about what my child actually does on the internet. Great idea to have children present so they can understand it’s not just us parents being over-protective. Looking forward to a family discussion later."
"Very interesting for both adults and children. Very informative. Quite eye opening to the range of content that’s easily accessible. Before the presentation I knew nothing of these safety websites."

The workshop is open to parents, carers, Key Stage 2 children and older siblings.
