Ofsted and e-safety: what will they ask?

The updated Ofsted briefing Inspecting e-Safety in Schools lists the types of questions schools can be expected to be asked when Ofsted visit.  The four main questions for the school leadership team are given as:

  • How do you ensure that all staff receive appropriate online safety training that is relevant and regularly up to date?
  • 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?
  • Does the school have e-safety policies and acceptable use policies in place?
