Curriculum Innovation (e)Safeguarding subscription package

This Curriculum Innovation Service provision is targeted at schools who have prioritised (e)Safeguarding & want to achieve the SWGfL Ofsted recognised E-safety mark within a 12 month period.

David Brown (HMI and National Lead for Computing) gave several presentations this summer about Inspecting Computing including direct references to the importance of (e)Safeguarding including the following:

  • Pupils have a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of how to stay safe when using new technologies
  • An age-appropriate e-safety curriculum that is flexible, relevant and engages pupils’ interest; that is used to promote e-safety through teaching pupils how to stay safe, how to protect themselves from harm and how to take responsibility for their own and others’ safety
  • E-safety is a priority across all areas of the school, with all teaching and non-teaching staff receiving regular and up-to-date training in e-safety
  • Rigorous e-safety policies and procedures are in place, written in plain English, contributed to by the whole school, updated regularly and ratified by governors.

All Curriculum Innovation consultants are qualified CEOP Ambassadors (Child Exploitation and Online Protection centre) and SWGfL (South West Grid for Learning) E-safety Mark Assessors and support schools and other organisations achieving their (e)Safeguarding goals.

This provision provides you with an experienced consultant who can enable you to ensure that leadership, management, policy, practice, infrastructure, data security, curriculum and CPD around (e)Safeguarding is of a sufficiently high standard to achieve the E-safety mark. The provision includes:

  • Three half day in school development sessions (one per term).
    Session one will be an initial (e)Safeguarding audit using the SWGfL online 360°safe audit tool and developing a detailed (e)Safeguarding action plan with key milestones. Further sessions will include updating the online audit, planning and evaluating identified milestones and updating the school on any changes to relevant legislation. During these sessions, the consultant can deliver to staff, pupils and parents as necessary as well as providing further strategic support.
  • Access to a personal online storage area for sharing your documents with your (e)Safeguarding consultant to update / comment on and access to exemplars and other (e)Safeguarding resources and provision to help you develop your (e)Safeguarding provision in school.
  • Mock or full E-safety Mark assessment by a qualified 360 E-safety Mark assessor at the end of the 12-month cycle (normally £550).

The cost of this provision is £1050.
