Cyberbullying and Online Safety: Guidelines for Professionals


Although the benefits of the internet far outweigh the potential dangers, professionals must be aware of the very real risks young people may be exposed to online. This leaflet aims to provide a brief education or refresher for professionals to make sure they are up to date with the most recent developments in cyberbullying and online safety.

This leaflet contains multiple sections including; what risk you people are facing online, key statistics, creating an e-safety strategy and further resources. Each of these sections contains further sub sections which aim to tackle more specific factors of cyberbullying and online safety.


This leaflet has been made available to act as a quick education or refresher for professionals as to how they should tackle cyberbullying and online safety within the environment they work in. I’ve marked this as relevant for both teachers and health and social care workers as I think it could apply to both sectors. The information is nicely broken up which means you can find exactly what you need to find and the information is presented in language that makes it accessible to everyone.
