About this event

Keeping Children Safe Online During Covid-19: a webinar for Bensham Manor SEN School.

Tuesday 20th April 2021 / 17:00-18:00

This webinar is aimed at parents and carers of young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND), but all parents are welcome to join.

Technology is a huge part of our young people's lives, with many positives and risks to consider. Screen time amongst young people has reportedly increased by 500% during lockdown, so keeping young people safe online has never been more important. Online issues such as bullying, hate speech, fake news, sexual harassment and exposure to upsetting content have increased at an alarming rate during the pandemic, with multiple layers of challenges (as well as opportunities) facing young people with additional needs.

Bensham Manor is excited to welcome leading online safety organisation, Digital Awareness UK, to deliver an online safety webinar to help our parents and carers feel empowered when it comes to supporting young people in their online lives.

During the 1 hour webinar, Digital Awareness UK will talk you through:

1. Popular online apps and digital wellbeing trends

2. Critical issues for you to be aware of, such as online relationships, in-app purchases and screen time.

3. The practical steps you can take to protect your young people from online risks, to set boundaries and to encourage happy and healthy tech habits

There will also be plenty of time to ask questions about any concerns you may have around online safety.

We look forward to seeing you there.


The event will be hosted on Zoom, the video communications tool. You will need to download the Zoom app onto your device prior to the event. You will not be required to turn on your camera for this event.

Please register your space here on Eventbrite and you will be sent the link to join the live Zoom webinar by email.

Please note that this webinar is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18, due to some sensitive topics that will be covered.

This event has been organised and hosted by Bensham Manor and Digital Awareness UK, supported by Vodafone UK.

We look forward to seeing you on the day. / @digitalsisters (Twitter) / @VodafoneUK (Twitter)
