Glossary of terms

We know that it's sometimes hard to explain certain words to children in an age appropriate way. At the Breck Foundation we believe that it is so important that children are made aware of the dangers and have an understanding of how to stay safe online. Parental controls can only do so much, education is key. We urge parents and teachers to talk about online issues so young people can understand why boundaries and safeguards are put in place.

Grooming

The best way to create a culture of awareness is through education, and that’s where the Breck Foundation and your school can work together to empower young people and keep them safe.  Our work includes educating them on the dangers of online grooming and giving them the tools to make better decisions and keep safer online.

 

We offer a variety of teaching resources for schools to use with all students in all the key stages including ‘Train the Trainer’ sessions so that you can incorporate specially designed lesson plans based around ‘Breck’s Last Game’ into PSHE lessons.

Working with schools, we deliver our presentations to staff, students and their parents. This creates an inclusive, collaborative approach to raising awareness about the dangers young people face through gaming and social media.
