Event Details

 A new session has been designed by the Peace Museum to explore the 

dangers posed by online grooming, hate crime and radicalisation.

Aimed at parents, Safe Online will encourage engagement through the delivery of an online safety session to children in school, who will then prepare a presentation for parents at an assembly.

The session for the children will enable them to:

  • Build awareness around strategies used by perpetrators
  • Understanding the techniques used online to spread hate messages
  • Reduce vulnerability to manipulative content
  • Develop critical thinking skills when engaging with online content
  • Increase confidence in understanding how to stay safe online

The session for the parents will enable them to:

  • Build awareness around strategies used by perpetrators
  • Understand the techniques used online
  • Recognise the signs of someone who may be succumbing to grooming
  • Give practical guidance on what to do if presented by malicious content
  • Signpost further support for those who may need it 

Using real life case studies, the session will inform parents of the risks posed by the internet today, and enable them to keep their children safe.

Delivered in your school or group context by an experienced facilitator, the session can be delivered to one class, and then to parents in the form of an assembly. Sessions last between 60 & 90 mins (flexible depending on timetables).

Safe Online has been developed in partnership with the Prevent Team. 

The Peace Museum has delivered Prevent work to thousands of young people, supporting schools, families and communities to work together to protect young people from harm. Their innovative Choices project has been identified as a model of Best Practice by the Prevent team at the Home Office and is now being rolled out across the UK.
