Parents play a vital role in the E-Safety education of their children, through promoting safe use of technology at home. But many parents aren't sure what they should be telling their children about staying safe online. Schools can help here by providing an E-Safety session which informs parents and carers about the benefits and risks of the virtual world and shows them how they can manage those risks. E2BN has already run lots of very successful E-Safety sessions for parents at schools around the region. Sessions last an hour and cover a wide range of E-Safety information.
"May I say a very big heartfelt thank you for your talk last night! It was excellent, funny, engaging and most importantly very informative." Milton Keynes School.
Internet safety is still quite a new idea for lots of people so you may need to try lots of different ways to get parents and carers to engage. See Engaging Parents in E-Safety for some ideas.
