We had the pleasure of visiting thousands of of pupils throughout the start of this year with our interactive internet safety workshops.
Here are some of the lovely posts on Twitter shared by the schools that we visited:
Today C3 and C2 pupils (Years 7 and 8) were excited to participate in an excellent Anti-Bullying Internet Safety Workshop run by @openviewed. Pupils role-played different online situations and discussed how they can be anti-bullying ambassadors online. pic.twitter.com/9tqjz4mRuX

Our KS1 children attended #OnlineSafety workshops today. They came away with a much better understanding of being kind online, how to keep safe and what to do if they don’t like something they see or hear. Thank you for the highly engaging and information lessons @openviewed 😀 pic.twitter.com/Iqjl56Oego

And here is some wonderful feedback we received about our new e-safety workshops:
‘I liked that the workshop met the age of my children very well. There were lots of parts in the workshop where my children could move around and get their energy out and not have to sit down the whole time. They really enjoyed the puppet and the story and it made a good impact on the children.’
– Fairisle Infant School, Southampton
‘I would like to comment on behalf of the teaching staff – who were absolutely amazed – by all three presenters. Children came from the sessions being able to retell what they learned and tips from Phil, Callie and Millie. When checking pupil voice, children from each year group mentioned how fun it was and how they really liked do all the acting out and body movements.
Teachers raved about all three instructors, complimenting their behaviour management and their ability to engage with the children. EYFS was especially impressed with how they were able to captivate the children.
As for the parent workshop, I sat in on the session and it was very informative. Concerns that parents had were addressed, and they were ready to share with other parents who weren’t able to attend.’
– St Peter’s Eaton Square, London.
‘I want to say a big thank you too. You and your team have all been fantastic in organising and running the Internet Safety Workshop and our facilitator was absolutely amazing. I had a very busy day yesterday but when I was able to walk past the workshops taking place, the students looked like they were having a wonderful time.’
– Moor House School & College
‘The workshop was very engaging and brilliantly aimed at the children’s age. The children enjoyed being involved with the ‘acting’ aspects and meeting the puppet. You were amazing! Thank you so much for your patience and kindness towards the children and their excitement!’
– Brookfield Primary Academy, Sutton.
‘I just wanted to personally say how amazing the workshops were. I received fantastic feedback from all class teacher who said they were impressed by how engaged you kept them. It was a great success. I am sure we will be booking you guys again in the future’.
– The Mulberry Primary School, London
‘The workshops were well adapted to the children age groups. Timing was flexible to the teacher. The workshops were both interactive and educational. The children were engaged and the teachers equally enjoyed the workshops. Additionally, there is a wealth of resources online provided by OpenView to embed the learning. Thank you OpenView.’
– St Aidan’s VC Primary School, London.
We’d like to say a big thank you to all of the schools and teachers for working with OpenView Education for the start of 2023! It’s been an absolute pleasure and we look forward to working with your pupils next year.
We’re already making plans for Safer Internet Day 2024, next year sees the return of our E-Safety Theatre Show – The Ultimate E-Safety Show. Learn more about our e-safety school visits here.
