30 Aug 2019 Becca Cawthorne

As the start of term grows ever closer, we look at some of the free resources available to help you to get back to school ready!

These resources are all free and available for use by any educator, including those involved in home schooling or running youth groups.

The internet provides educators with a fantastic tool for teaching young people, communicating with others and sharing successes with the wider community. In order to make the most out social media, technology and the internet we have put together a pack of useful resources. These include:

Stuck for ideas whilst planning your school’s online safety activities? Our updated online safety calendar could help you out! 

The calendar includes key dates such as Safer Internet Day and Anti-Bullying Week, as well as fun lesson themes and games.

The checklist outlines key points to consider when using technology in the classroom, at school and at home, to help you face any challenges you may face.

The Social Media Guidance offers advice on utilising social media safely and responsibly in both your personal and professional life.  

This online safety INSET presentation is designed to be delivered by the online safety Lead, or designated staff member, in your school, organisation or child care setting. 

The presentation is flexible and the direction of discussion can be guided by the staff members present and pertinent current issues.
