City of London Police: 'Cyber Detectives' lesson plans, KS2

The resource pack, available to download below, includes two comprehensive lesson plans for Year 5/6 pupils with supporting PowerPoints, accompanied by teacher guidance explaining how to ensure the effective delivery of the lessons. The pack also contains information and guidance for parents, to help them stay informed about how online fraud could affect their child, along with practical tips and advice on how to keep safe.

The lessons will support pupils to:

  • Explain what online fraud is and identify and analyse some examples of scams
  • Describe the importance of protecting personal information and data online
  • Explain why age restrictions for online games can help to keep people safe and prevent fraud
  • Recognise ways to stay as safe as possible online and how to report concerns about online fraud

PSHE Association Subject Specialist Lydia Stober says:
“The rise of online gaming and social media use mean that fraud prevention education has never been more important, particularly for primary aged pupils who are exploring the online world at an early age. These PSHE education lessons from the City of London Police and Lloyds Banking Group will help pupils to recognise the signs of fraudulent activity online in a variety of different contexts including emails, websites and gaming. Pupils are also given the opportunity to discuss the potential risks to themselves and ways to reduce it, and understand the importance of age ratings in keeping them safe and avoiding online fraud.”
