All about this Internet Safety in Schools course

In our Internet Safety in Schools course you will learn the importance of internet safety and that whatever activity someone is carrying out via the internet, they are consistently at risk.

You will learn the internet provides multiple opportunities for positive usage, which varies depending on the user and their motivations.

You will acknowledge with countless online resources, the internet has the potential to help teachers to improve their practices and therefore enable their learners to meet their education goals.

An e-safety policy must outline how a setting keeps everyone safe when they are using the internet.

It should demonstrate appropriate internet practice for both staff and children and should link to existing legislation and policies around behaviour, anti-bullying practices and safeguarding.

You will learn of the many dangers children may face when using the internet and the signs to look out for when a child is experiencing potential danger. You will consider the different cyber-security risks which children may face when they are using the internet in an unsafe manner.

In this course you look at the one of the biggest risks that children face when gaming, and that they should be encouraged to play online with people who they know in real life, such as their school friends or family members.

At the end of our Internet Safety in Schools course you will learn many parents may be unaware of the risks that some forms of online behaviour can have.

With this in mind, parents should be encouraged to be as involved as possible with researching and increasing their own levels of knowledge and awareness around online safety.

In order to complete the course, you must achieve 80% or more in the final multiple choice quiz.

You will earn 2 CPD points on completion of the course, this course will take around 2 hours to complete and the certificate will last for two years.
