The government’s Internet Safety Strategy published on 11th October looks at how we can make Britain the safest place in the world for users to be online. We want everybody to be able to access the benefits of the internet without harm, and this means working together with a wide range of stakeholders to develop safer online communities and empowering citizens to manage risks and stay safe online.
We know that schools play a critical role supporting children when they have suffered online harms. The Strategy sets out how DCMS and DfE will work together to ensure support for schools on these issues. We recognise that companies also have a responsibility for conduct and content on their products and platforms and are therefore setting stretching objectives for industry on tackling online harms.
We'd like to get school staff (teachers, teaching assistants, wellbeing staff...) views on the full range of proposals in the Strategy and are therefore conducting focus groups both in London and regionally. Schools will be credited for their contribution to the consultation (/not referenced, as preferred).
The session will take place at the Innovation Centre in Little Germany, Bradford on Friday 26th January 13:00 – 14:30. Food and refreshments for staff attending the meeting will be available from 12:30.
