Managing online safety needs to be approached from a whole school perspective. In this final module we will take a look at two areas: strategy and curriculum.

Strategy

Now let’s take a look at strategies for keeping children and young people safe online. Select the left and right arrows underneath the image to advance through key areas of information contained on each the slides:

There is a free self assessment tool called 360 Safe ( https://360safe.org.uk/ ). 

Developed by the South West Grid for Learning who are a charity and the lead partner in the UK Safer Internet Centre. It is an in-depth tool which allows you to judge yourself and compare where you are against an acceptable standard in multiple different aspects, giving you tips and advice for moving forward. 

On completion you can then apply for accreditation, where an assessor will visit you and assess whether you do meet all the standards through policy review and interviews with staff, parents, governors and students. 

It takes time to do it correctly and you shouldn’t try to do it all at once, but try to give people time out of their busy schedule to plan accordingly.
