As a result of the recommendations of the Byron Review, the UKCCIS (UK Council for Child Internet Safety) recently launched its 'Click Clever, Click Safe' Internet Safety Strategy. The strategy outlines a number of recommendations (see page 21 of the main strategy document) including the aim that 'Online safety education is a requirement from age 5 in England' from September 2011.

Colleagues at the Westfield Centre in Leyland recently posted a flyer on the Schools Portal informing schools of the availability of the eSafe Education offering in Lancashire. In order to assist schools in making an informed decision, the attached document has been compiled as a result of feedback from school-based colleagues.
Whilst the document is provided purely for guidance purposes, it is hoped to be of use to schools in raising awareness of some of the considerations and implications associated with deploying the software to support the wider eSafety agenda in schools.
The development of the LSCB eSafety Strategy is an important milestone in addressing eSafety on a strategic level across Lancashire.
The Strategy sets out the LSCB's view of eSafety in Lancashire and is underpinned with an associated Action Plan which details how the Strategy should be delivered (details of the Action Plan are in the final stages of completion and will be posted here as they become available).
