These videos have been designed for sports organisations to use during group sessions or training with staff on the subject of online safety.
Each video poses a scenario, asks viewers to think about the potential responses and details the actions that could be taken to manage the concern in question and improve practice.
You can use these videos to help identify any gaps in knowledge and improve your case management processes around online safety concerns.
Scenario 1: Cyberbullying in sport
- National governing bodies usually have their own policies and procedures for dealing with online safety or bullying concerns which clubs can refer to for guidance
- it's good practice to have strong anti-bullying and online safety guidelines in place to both prevent and address concerns of this nature
- staff should be aware of online safety and anti-bullying policies. Online training may also be helpful in order to identify concerns
For further guidance on cyberbullying, visit our anti-bullying topic page.
Scenario 2: Online grooming in sport
- it's important to have strong reporting and referral procedures in place to ensure that concerns are dealt with by the appropriate agencies
- online safety policies should be reviewed regularly to keep up with young peoples' evolving use of technology
- ensure staff are clear on what kind of behaviour is acceptable when communicating with young people online. Implement codes of conduct for staff and an acceptable use statement for both staff and children
