Ofsted update e-Safety guidance

An updated publication has been released by Ofsted.  The new Inspecting e-safety in Schools September 2013, briefing gives details of what Ofsted Inspectors will be looking for when they visit schools.

There is a section outlining what the key features of good and outstanding e-Safety practice are.  This includes a whole school approach to e-Safety which is stated as being:

  • All teaching and non-teaching staff can recognise and are aware of e-Safety issues.
  • High quality leadership and management make e-Safety a priority across all areas of the school.
  • A high priority given to training in e-Safety, extending expertise widely and building internal capacity.
  • The contribution of pupils, parents and the wider school community is valued and integrated.

We provide online e-Safety training courses for schools and parents, written by a leading e-Safety expert theses training courses are designed specifically to help schools meet the e-Safety requirements as specified by Ofsted.  The courses are easy to administer, provide a central training record and because they are online can be taken at any time making them convenient and flexible for schools, staff and parents.
