As the dangers faced online by children are increasing, Ofsted have decided to raise parents' awareness of this important issue by presenting a webinar tonight at 7:00 pm. In a letter informing educators and parents about the webinar, they write:
Grooming, radicalisation and child sexual exploitation are often perpetrated via the internet and pose a real threat to children of all ages. Given this rise in incidents, Ofsted have worked with the Breck Foundation to offer schools and parents a webinar to identify and consider dangers presented by the internet. We provide guidance for school staff to support their work and explain how Ofsted inspects this aspect of safeguarding. The webinar also offers guidance to parents about how to help their children stay safe. This webinar will be presented by Hilary Macdonald, Senior Her Majesty’s Inspector, Daniel Lambert, Her Majesty’s Inspector, and Lorin LeFave, founder of the Breck Foundation, whose son, Breck, was groomed and murdered in 2014.
We would urge all our parents and carers to access this webinar tonight. To register, please click on this link: http://bit.ly/OnlineSafetyWebinar
