As children grow up more internet-savvy than ever, we believe that it's vital for parents to know the signs of online grooming and keep savvy with online safety.
Our hard-hitting ‘Don’t Talk to Strangers’ workshop explores the dangers children and young people are exposed to online and how to spot the signs of online grooming.
Children are now growing up with the internet, “Don’t Talk to Strangers” helps children and young people understand online safety and spot the warning signs of online grooming.
The online world is a strange place where things might not always be what they seem, and people aren’t always who they say they are. Join Professor Check-it online and play the ’SIGN SPOT’ game, where we begin to understand what online grooming really looks like! We spot the warning signs and learn tools & techniques to take action in order to keep ourselves safe. Bringing the idea of stranger-danger into the online world, children and young people will learn what to be wary of and create strategies for dealing with strangers in the online world!
Through creative, challenging drama, pupils will explore online grooming, how to spot the signs, how to seek help and learn how to keep safe when using the internet.
This workshop works well in conjunction with our “Being well groomed? Do you know the signs?”Online Grooming workshop for parents.

"The children worked really hard and it was clearly very focused with a productive outcome used to support the whole school (and parents) on how to stay safe. The children really enjoyed the drama based warm-up activities and I will use them in my own practise. Learning about internet safety with a view to sharing it to the rest of the school gave the day a real purpose and the children were very focussed. The clear messages have stuck in the children's minds and I hope will inform their internet behaviour. The Facilitator was dynamic and fun as well as clear and confident, so it made for a really good day. All positive, fun and safe!"
