Natterhub launches new initiative to help time-strapped schools embed an online safety curriculum

Natterhub, the award-winning online safety platform, is delighted to announce its free
'Cybersmart in Seven Minutes' programme for primary schools.

Helping children thrive online, Natterhub has created a new way to support schools that are
struggling to embed an online safety curriculum. Offering a flavour of its unique approach to
online safety education, Natterhub's free 'Cybersmart in Seven Minutes' programme aims to
ease financial and time restraints that prevent schools getting started, and kick-start their
online safety teaching - in just 7 minutes a week.

'Cybersmart in Seven' gets primary schools up and running with a weekly 2-minute video and
a 5-minute activity plan for the hottest topics in online safety right now. What's more,
because the content is extracted from Natterhub's experiential learning platform, it aligns
with curricular requirements, making it easy to achieve teaching objectives.

This unique programme is completely free of charge and teachers are also encouraged to
sign up for the free version of Natterhub's platform as a way to complement the activity plan,
as pupils can use its interactive newsfeed to carry out some activities.

Natterhub Co-Founder and educator Caroline Allams said: ‘It’s critical that we are having
relevant, regular conversations with children about their online lives, but we know that
teachers are already overloaded. We created Cybersmart to enable schools to easily embed
the right conversations into their weekly timetable and create an instant, positive digital
culture into their school.

Natterhub's 'Cybersmart in Seven Minutes' programme is completely free for primary
schools. Visit the 'Cybersmart in Seven' page for information and to register your interest
