Some examples from good and outstanding practice - with examples of support

"Rigorous online safety policies and procedures are in place, written in plain English, contributed to by the whole school, updated regularly and ratified by governors.

The online safety policy should be integrated with other relevant policies such as behaviour, safeguarding and anti-bullying.

The online safety policy should incorporate an Acceptable Usage Policy that is understood and respected by pupils, staff and parents." -

Link to policy page - http://www.lancsngfl.ac.uk/esafety/index.php?category_id=13
The SWGfL have very good guidance for this linked to the 360 degree tool.
 

"High quality leadership and management make e-safety a priority across all areas of the school (the school may also have achieved a recognised standard, for example the e-Safety Mark)."

"All teaching and non-teaching staff receive regular and up-to-date training.

One or more members of staff have a higher level of expertise and clearly defined responsibilities." - Inspecting e-Safety 2014 - Ofsted

We offer whole staff training sessions and run the EPICT eSafety certification qualification for those teachers wanting a formal qualification in eSafety.

We are happy to run parent training sessions for you. Contact us on lpds@lancashire.gov.uk.

Curriculum

"An age-appropriate e-safety curriculum that is flexible, relevant and engages pupils’ interest; that is used to promote e-safety through teaching pupils how to stay safe, how to protect themselves from harm and how to take responsibility for their own and others’ safety." -  (Ofsted)

We discuss resources in the KS1 and KS2 computing courses. They are also discussed in staff training sessions. There are also good links from the 360 degree safe tool and on this website.

"Any professional communications between the setting and clients that utilise technology should:
• take place within clear and explicit professional boundaries
• be transparent and open to scrutiny
• not share any personal information with a child or young person."
 

This is discussed on staff training and also on some online safety courses

How does the school educate and support parents and whole school community with online safety?


We run parent online safety training sessions. They are usually about an hour long.
