Parent Online Safety Workshop

We all know how hard it is to keep up to date with what our children are doing online.  If you would like practical and valuable advice on how to protect yourself and your family online, then please join our popular E-safety webinar workshop, hosted by Stella James, CEO and founder of Gooseberry Planet.  This webinar is tailored for parents and is FREE OF CHARGE!

Stella has become a well-known speaker on the subject of Online Safeguarding and regularly speaks at schools and educational events across the UK.  She is passionate about raising the profile of E-Safety in schools and about engaging and educating the whole school community.  Parents and teachers have a combined responsibility to protect and prepare children for a life online.  But are we doing enough?

“Thanks so much for the safety seminar this evening – there were many interesting points made (simple yet effective measures to make our kids safer online) but my greatest take-away from the session is awareness. That rather than to simply ban apps, games or websites, talking to your kids and walking through games and content with them is the key. Kids can then be highlighted to possible dangers which you as a parent might well not have aware of beforehand. Planning to sit down and walk through every app with my son at the weekend! Next time I would really appreciate more tips on website content and restrictions. Keep up the excellent work!”
