e-safety: can you keep up?

17 September 2012

Ofsted's new inspection guidelines are now in force and they include an increased emphasis on e-safety in schools. As a result, we expect Ofsted to focus on how a school protects and educates staff and pupils on the use of technology as part of their inspection.

E-safety is a fast changing area and schools need to keep up with developments to ensure pupils are given the necessary skills to help them understand and avoid risks online both on and off school premises.

This new framework is long overdue and will put some pressure on schools to ensure their policies are clear and meet Ofsted's expectations. E-safety is a key element to safeguarding - not getting it right can have serious impacts on pupil’s safety. Keeping your policies and procedures up to date with new technology will be key to evidencing your approach and keeping pupils safe.
