New for Academic Year 2020-21

We are pleased to announce that our Education Team can now offer all standard sessions in both an online and in-person format.

Find out more about our standard sessions by clicking in the boxes below:

  • 3 – 7 year olds in Nursery, EYFS and KS1 Open or Close

    A shorter session for younger children lasting between 30 and 45 minutes. Our Education Officers tell the story of Salma the Seal and ensure key messages are embedded through a repeated short song and accompanying actions.

    This content is designed to be used alongside our popular Smartie the Penguin resources.

  • 7 - 11 year olds in KS2 Open or Close

    Scenario and discussion based assembly style workshops tailored for either the 7-9 or 9-11 year old age group.

    Both sessions include key messages around online friendships, gaming, videos, personal information, trust, bullying and grooming, and can be tailored to incorporate key issues for your setting.

  • 11- 16 year olds in KS3 and KS4 Open or Close

    Our secondary sessions are tailored for each year group and use realistic examples, video content and discussion to deliver key messages on relevant, topical and engaging issues.

    Our Education Officers are confident in speaking on a range of issues including fake news & misinformation, online relationships, sexting, and more, meaning these sessions can easily be adapted to incorporate key issues for your setting.

  • 16 – 18 year olds in Further Education Open or Close

    Designed specifically with older students in mind, these sessions look at the power of the internet and tackle some of the big issues facing us all online. From online sexual harassment to data and privacy, these ‘meatier’ topics are designed to get young people thinking, whilst delivering practical advice without being patronising.

  • Parent and Carer Sessions Open or Close

    Our informative and empowering sessions for parents and carers equip them with practical advice and resources to help support their children in a digital age. Our Education Officers offer a friendly and reassuring face to help guide parents through risks such as grooming, bullying, fake news and sexting, whilst signposting them to invaluable tools for reporting, setting up parental controls and establishing a dialogue about online safety at home.

  • Staff Training Open or Close

    As online safety experts with a background in education all our presenters are ideally placed to support you with up-to-date staff training. Highlighting key research and emerging trends, our session delves into preventative education before focussing on statutory safeguarding requirements. We know how busy all teachers are, so work hard to make our sessions practical, engaging and informative.
