Online Safety and (e)Safeguarding

Whole school (e)Safeguarding sits firmly in the safeguarding remit of the school and Ofsted inspections are asking more questions about a school's (e)Safeguarding provision as part of the safeguarding element of school inspections.

It is therefore very important that a school has the ability to review / audit their current provision in order to action plan and develop the areas of their provision that presently do not meet inspection standards.

A free and effective tool to enable school's to do this is the award winning 360 degree safe online safety self-review tool from South West Grid for Learning (SWGfL) available here https://360safe.org.uk/ and I encourage all schools to utilise this tool.

There is also a four day course run at the National Stem centre in York that covers all the elements of the tool in detail in order to enable schools to ensure they meet the expected national standards with the opportunity to achieve the nationally recognised E-Safety Mark. This course comes with Enthuse Award funding covering the cost of the course.

The course starts on the 9th March and further information and registration is available here: https://www.stem.org.uk/cpd/75738/achieving-e-safety-mark-your-primary-school
