In this digital age, where children have devices at their fingertips from a young age and often use them unsupervised, developing the knowledge and strategies to stay safe online is an essential life skill. Education needs to start young and to be delivered regularly throughout their schooling to help them develop the digital resilience needed to cope with online risks and challenges.
Gooseberry Alerts contain practical e-safety tips and information for you to share amongst your school community. We keep on top of the latest e-safety research, trending apps and online risks to enable you to be informed and prepared.

Government funding for solutions to help prevent child abuse online, enquiry into how age ratings are determined and whether they comply with the Children’s Code and more safety features from TikTok are reported in this weeks’ newsletter.
The theme of this year’s Anti-Bullying Week is “One Kind Word”. Kindness, be it in thoughts, words or actions, is an incredibly important quality to foster in a world where we seem to be surrounded by reports of intolerance, division and lack of respect, both on and offline.
Teachers suffer online harassment and abuse on social media, child abuse images go undetected after Facebook turns off scanning software and a new campaign is launched to address the growth in online message-based scams.
