Online Safety Training for Schools
New Online Safety for Schools
Online Safety training can be tailored to your requirements; I’m not a great believer in set training as every school is different. Training is designed for Teachers, Governors / Trustees, Parents / Carers and Pupils from years 1-13.

Inspection of and. / or creation of Robust E-Safety Polices & AUPs for Schools.
Online Safety Awareness for Governors / Trustees
Since the new Ofsted E-Safety Framework was introduced in the UK last year (recent update Sept 15), many schools are requesting training to further their Child Safeguarding portfolio and/or pending any possible inspection by Ofsted or the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI).
