Ofsted on Outstanding eSafety

David Brown, Ofsted National Advisor for ICT, talking on Safer Internet Day radio about eSafety. Some key points from the MP3 below…

  • All staff should be aware and involved
  • eSafety should be part of the whole curriculum, not just within the ICT/Computing subject area
  • Senior management responsible for training
  • Policies that students understand and have been involved in creating
  • Effective ways of reporting (examples: known members of staff, student buddies, on screen reporting buttons)
  • No one way that fits every school
  • eSafety of staff as well of students considered

Red flag? If the head says “talk to my head of department about that”.
