1/15 E-Safety in Initial Teacher Training Secondary Phase
2/15 Half (49%) of young people questioned say they have given out personal information, such as their full names, ages, email addresses, phone numbers, hobbies or names of their schools, to someone they met on the internet. By contrast, only 5% of parents think their child has given out such information. (Source: UK Children Go Online.) Prior to the launch of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), there was no centralised collection of details of internet-related abuse in the UK, and not all victims reported incidents. The need for e-safety
3/15 Focussed on the school ensuring children are e-safe by “reducing availability, restricting access and increasing resilience” Building “children’s resilience to the material to which they may be exposed so that they have the confidence and skills to navigate … more safely” Ensure that new teachers entering the profession are equipped with e-safety knowledge and skills. Making explicit teaching and learning about e-safety. Identifying home-school links as a key issue. The Byron Review

6/15 You are going to watch a video that introduces different aspects of e-safety. Jenny’s Story is a short film based on the true story of Jenny, a teenager who chats to a stranger on the internet. It shows how, through chatting online, Jenny reveals personal information which results in her being contacted in real life and ultimately hurt. INSERT DVD Jenny’s Story or KIA for Trainee Teachers Introduction to Jenny’s Story
7/15 Jenny’s Story illustrates one of the dangers to children when using the internet: that of online grooming, which could lead to physical harm. Grooming is defined by the Home Office as: ‘A course of conduct enacted by a suspected paedophile, which would give a reasonable person cause for concern that any meeting with a child arising from the conduct would be for unlawful purposes.’ Online grooming is only one of a whole range of risks that you will consider today.
8/15 * Why might young people behave differently online from offline? * How might young people put each other at risk online? * Other than contact with strangers, what are the other areas of risk to young people posed by the internet? * What advice could we give young people to help them keep safe online? * What would make a young person reluctant to tell an adult about something which made them feel uncomfortable on the internet? * What can a school do to keep children safe on the internet? * Are younger children more or less vulnerable? * Discussion points:
9/15 If you suspect that a pupil is a victim of physical abuse or you have received any type of disclosure about abuse occurring either online or offline, you MUST contact the designated member of staff immediately and make it clear to the pupil that he or she will have to share the information with a colleague of yours. For your benefit, you should make and sign accurate notes of the incident immediately after the disclosure. To report suspicious behaviour online with or towards a child contact the ‘Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre’ http://www.ceop.gov.ukhttp://www.ceop.gov.uk Dealing with disclosures
