E-safety Support has 8 parent resources - scroll down for details and samples

Engaging parents with e-safety issues can be one of the biggest challenges for schools. Research shows that many parents feel out of their depth with social media and new technologies, while their children are adept users. In the E-safety Support parent pack, there are a selection of resources to help boost your communications with parents. These include a comprehensive PowerPoint presentation that covers all the key issues in a straightforward way, ideal for use at a parents evening or an e-safety event. You will also find guidance and top tips on getting parents involved, a factsheet that can be distributed via the school website or at an e-safety event, and a questionnaire, which you can adapt to use as a survey to understand parental awareness of e-safety issues.
