To help parents who may have been worried at the increased screen-time of their children, in collaboration with Google, we developed 5 short videos that we hope will help. Many of these online safety messages are still relevant now.
Video lessons for parents
We couldn’t deliver our face to face workshops because of Covid19 restrictions and developed these videos for parents about online safety to help. Each video is under 5 minutes long and you can choose to watch them one by one, or as a mini-presentation. Please click on the title below to watch more.

Online Safety Programme - Full edition
Many of the videos signpost to Be Internet Legends, an interactive game about online safety for children aged 7-11 that allows them to explore different lands and learn about cyberbullying, scams and how not to over share personal information. There is also information about Family Link, a form of parental controls, this app allows parents to monitor how long their child is online for and keep track of what they are downloading.
