The qualification covers the key areas of internet safety and details are in the course breakdown attached.

This one-hour introductory session will be followed by five weekly one-hour remote Keeping Up with your Child English or Keeping Up with your Child maths sessions.  These courses are non-accredited and designed for parents/carers of Year 3 primary or Year 7 secondary pupils.  An additional 5 weeks online phonics course is also available and this can be delivered after half term. 

These courses will cover aspects that children will be studying at school and provide parents/carers with the tools to support their children with schoolwork in these subjects.  The courses will be taught by English and maths specialists and details are in the attached course outlines.
