Download this pack to teach an online safety lesson to pupils about how they can spot risks online, and how they can best avoid putting themselves at risk. 

We've reviewed this briefing in light of the Online Safety Act 2023.

Pupils will get a chance to learn:

  • The kinds of risk they should look out for online
  • What they should do if they spot a dangerous situation, and who to talk to
  • What they can do to make themselves as safe as possible while they're online

This pack includes a lesson presentation, a printable activity sheet for pupils to complete during the lesson, and delivery notes to help teachers prepare for and deliver the lesson.

Please note: the activity sheet may not appear in full colour in Word, but will be in full colour when printed.
