Online Safety Workshops

The message of online safety is of paramount importance with more and more children becoming active online everyday. Ensuring that children have the knowledge and power to confidently protect themselves online both in and out of the classroom is our mission, and something that needs to be supported by teachers, parents and caregivers alike.

Smoothwall’s online safety workshops are aimed at educating pupils and parents on the importance of online safety and offer practical advice on how to stay smart and be safe online in today’s society. Taking place in schools and colleges across the UK, our Online Safety Ambassadors deliver workshops suitable for audiences of all ages and can be tailored to suit individual requirements.
