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”.
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
Who will watch the watchmen?

A summary of what ofsted say they want from Scenes From The Battleground.
- Planning to provide a framework for lessons.
- Reflective teachers who acknowledge that teaching is a learning process.
- Perceptive people that can adapt to optimise a learning episode (and change their carefully made plans when needed).
- Measuring your success on whether measurement shows students making (rapid) progress.
A good read. (This week I realise that I’m struggling with #5).
