Guides and resources
Teachers and school staff
Educators, social workers and other professionals working with children and young people play a key role in supporting children to learn about how to stay safe online.
It is our experience that this is best achieved by embedding online safety across the curriculum or the work of the organisation, through a framework of effective policies and routes for reporting concerns such as cyberbullying. As well as supporting young people to stay safe online, staff also need to protect their own online reputation, particularly when using social networking sites.
