e-Safety/Online Safety for Schools

Since September 2012 Ofsted have been inspecting e-Safety as part of their review of a schools safeguarding arrangements.

Ofsted state: Inspectors should include e-safety in their discussions with pupils and (report) what measures the school takes to promote safe use and combat unsafe use, both proactively and reactively.

Typical questions Ofsted inspectors may ask are:

  • How do you ensure that all staff receive appropriate online safety training that is relevant and regularly up dated?
  • Does the school have e-Safety policies and acceptable use policies in place?
  • Describe how your school educates children and young people to build knowledge, skills and capability when it comes to online safety? How do you assess its effectiveness?
  • What mechanisms does the school have in place to support pupils and staff facing online safety issues?
  • How does the school educate and support parents and whole school community with online safety?

The ChildProtectionCompany.com has all the resources a school needs to enable them to fulfil their e-Safety and safeguarding requirements. Our e-Safety support package and online e-Safety training courses are straightforward and cost effective products to enable a school to meet its e-Safety obligations, helping to keep its students and staff safe, and to provide the evidence needed for Ofsted inspections.

Our online e-Safety for parents course is a great resource for schools to engage and involve parents and families in the e-Safety message, providing further compliance with Ofsted's requirements.

An annual training licence is also available, providing unlimited access to all our online training courses for schools. Please contact us with your staff and pupil numbers and we will supply a tailored quote.
