There are also links at the bottom of the page are for parents and carers to use to keep up to date with Online Safety.
At home you could support our work in keeping the children safe online by:
Online Safety Sessions for Parents
We host 6 webinars per academic year for parents to develop understanding of the most current online safety issues. These sessions are provided by Skips Educational and Knowsley City Learning Centre. Our last session was held on Wednesday 7th February 2024.
A link to a recording of the latest session with Knowsley can be accessed here:
The sessions are extremely well received with the feedback attached below. Some of the comments included:
"I would just like you to know the Webinar session tonight was very informative and a real eyeopner to what goes on in the online world....I'm so glad I signed up to watch it. Even though I know certain things go on online, I didn't realise how much!" (2023)
“As parents we need to see this. Eye opening to what we presume our children would not do. A Very big thank you” (2022)
“It was excellent and easy to follow. The gaming shocked me and my wife. Sorry to say, we have allowed our son to play GTA and COD online with his friends. We have spoken to him and he has agreed not to play them anymore. We have actually just sold them on eBay” (2022)
“VERY uncomfortable and even more worried that our young children can easily have access to this. This training should be compulsory for all parents. Highly recommended” (2022)
“I’m so happy the school invited me. We make more time for screen free activities and found it so much easier to talk about how they can stay safe. A very big thank you" (2021)
“This is something I would never have thought about. Very important we know what our children are doing. Excellent session and so helpful” (2021)
“Me and my wife found the webinar powerful and such an eye-opener. We have reviewed all our parental settings on our devices since the session” (2021)
