Petition Action

Publish mandatory curriculum content on online safety for children

Petition Details

The Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education statutory guidance contains content on internet safety and harms, but it is up to schools how to deliver this. We want the Government to require schools to teach a standardised course on online safety for children.

Additional Information

I was medically discharged from the RAF Police with C-PTSD after being in a role where I had to analyse the imagery associated with child sexual offence investigations. Statutory guidance sets out what it expects students to be taught, but leaves it to individual schools to decide how to deliver this. This means children can receive wildly varying standards of education on the subject. We want the Government to commission a comprehensive learning package that all schools are mandated to teach to achieve those outcomes.
