Benefits to getting parents involved with online safety
By involving and engaging parents, they can share any online safety issues that have come up at home. These can then feed into the design of your online safety programmes. This will also mean parents have a greater awareness of your curriculums and can implement the principles of online safety at home as well.
Communicate parents' responsibilities through your policies
- Include online behaviour in your behaviour and bullying policies, and clear processes for reporting in your child protection policy
- Parents should be responsible for making sure their child has engaged with your online safety policy. Our model policy includes acceptable use agreements for parents, as well as pupils
The DfE guidance on teaching online safety in school has further information.
Make sure parents know your policy and the process for reporting online safety concerns to the school. This
