esafety for schools 


Training days are interactive

Welcome to esafety for schools by Youthworks. Are you confused by all your school needs to have in place to keep children safe online?  


A refreshing new approach can help engage your pupils, staff and parents to make the most of the exciting online world. 


Cyberbullying is markedly reduced, risky behaviour is minimised and staff feel empowered with a range of tools to use. 


Our training takes place in small groups, it is interactive and informal. You take away ideas and tools to use in school.


Training covers:


  • A new way of approaching e-safety,
  • What schools need to have in place,
  • What students need to know,
  • What inspections require,
  • Exciting classroom activities,
  • How to handle real life cases,
  • Policy and procedures,
  • Handling serious incidents,
  • Engaging parents


 Devices, and youth culture are always changing and Inspection develops. We can help. We stay up to date by constantly researching young people's experiences using The Cybersurvey run by our parent company Youthworks. The training is based on practical experience, research and daily work with schools.


 ‘Brilliant course!  I have learnt lots about how to keep children safe on the internet and hot to share ideas/activities with my Year 5/6 class!’

Based on young people's views

The Youthworks Cybersurvey now has 38,000 young respondents and is in its 10th year!

This is the way to find out what young people are really experiencing online! Adjust your practice and your online safety education delivery with detailed knowledge of your local picture.

The Cybersurvey is a rigorous survey programme, developed with local authorities by Adrienne Katz of Youthworks in 2008. Carefully tested and responsive to current concerns such as CSE and Radicalisation, it explores cyberbullying, online risks, e-safety education and more. We are working with Dr Aiman El Asam, research fellow in psychology, at the University of Kingston on research papers and practice tools.

   The latest survey included:

  • Emotional health and how it is linked with online behaviour
  • Meeting up in real life with someone known only online
  • Sharing self generated intimate images
  • Manipulative or controlling relationships
  • Cyberbullying and other aggression
  • Visiting sites promoting anorexia, self-harm, suicide, racism and hatred, extremist views.
  • High risk online behaviour.
  • Teens' relationships with their mobiles


To enquire about your school, academy chain or local authority taking part, please contact us or read more on our Cybersurvey website.
