Description

STOP PRESS: Children's Commissioner report issued - come and hear all about it

With regular headlines in the press about online-safety, questions over whether settings should share photos online or by messaging services, and the many concerns about social media, it is little wonder that online-safety is a growing priority. In fact, it has become so important that Ofsted now includes it as an integral part of their judgement on safeguarding, putting it firmly on the agenda of all Early Years settings.

Combine this with an increasing number of parents and settings using tablets and mobile devices with young children (and even babies), the extensive range of smart watches and devices that have cameras attached, and we soon see that the need to have good online-safety policies in place is critical.

So, how do you enable young children to take full advantage of new technology to learn and develop, while providing a safe environment?

Where does your responsibility end and parental responsibility begin? And can you help to ensure children's online-safety beyond the front door of your nursery? Did you even know that Ofsted will ask about this? It can feel like a lot to think about and get right, but don’t worry. We are here to help.

Our training aims to provide you with some insight and advice on how to approach online-safety. We’ll give you simple ideas, practical activities, up to date research, hot off the press guidance from Ofsted, and useful hints on how to put effective online-safety provisions in place. All of this will help you to meet the needs of young children, staff, parents and Ofsted.

Using the references to "online-safety" in the updated "Inspecting Safeguarding in Early Years" Ofsted document, and the EYFS 2017 we will share with you the clear guidelines given to inspectors on the type of evidence they must gather. We will explain how inspectors begin to gather evidence in the days before the inspection, and how they gather evidence during their visit to your setting.

Book now for this 3 hour session, which will also give you a comprehensive set of activities and resources to take away and use in staff training. The perfect way to develop your whole team's understanding of online-safety.

Led by Sandra Woolley and Lucy Waterman (trained Early Years Inspectors) who have many years experience in helping settings achieve outstanding Ofsted judgements.

FAQs

LOCATION GUIDANCE:

The venue is at the offices of Randall and Payne accountants. It is located on the A46 Shurdington Road, between Cheltenham and Shurdington. Use the postcode GL51 4GA and look for the R&P (Randall and Payne) purple and grey signs. Visitors car parking is on the right as you come in the entrance.

If you are heading north up the A46 you will pass the Cricket Club on the right. Randall and Payne are on the left just after this.

If you are heading south down the A46, you will come over a roundabout at Up Hatherly Road. Go straight over towards Stroud. The offices for Randall and Payne are on the right after 500 yards. If you reach the Cricket Club you have missed it. Turn around here and come back to R&P.

Is this event suitable for childminders?

Yes - the inspection process for childminders uses the same documents and so this is very relevant.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No you do not need to print the ticket or bring it to the course.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

That's fine. Please contact the organisers with the names of the delegates so that we know who to expect.
