Internet Safety and Cyberbullying Workshop for Secondary Schools

Barnardos Internet Safety and Cyberbullying workshop has been developed based on research, current thinking and best practice in relation to promoting online safety among children. The workshop for children is highly interactive.

The aim of the workshop is to promote online safety and positive behaviour online.

Children are increasingly spending large amounts of their time online. Research carried out in the UK for Ofcom’s 2016 report on Children and Parents: Media Use and Attitudes discovered that eight in 10 young people aged 12-15 now have their own smartphone and spend an average of 15 hours a week online.

Each teacher will receive a pack with activities they can do with their class promoting Internet Safety and Cyberbullying.
