e-safety up to scratch?

22 October 2013

A primary school survey has flagged concerning statistics regarding children’s use of the internet. With 20% of children meeting someone in person after they met online and the same figure never having received training on safe internet usage – are school’s doing enough to protect their pupils online?

Ofsted are continually pushing for e-safety to be a safeguarding priority and are inspecting schools accordingly. Dealing with such a fast-paced and topical area is often difficult for schools to manage and many feel that the Government should be providing more support and resources to assist them.

A good practical starting point for schools is to ensure that all pupils and staff receive regular training on how to stay safe online and have clear and current e-safety policies in place.
