E-Safety

E-safety is the process of limiting risks to children and young people when using Information and Communications Technology (ICT). E-Safety is primarily a safeguarding issue, not a technological issue, which relates to the use of all ICT.

Further advice, support and training on all matters relating to e-safety are available from

How effective is your setting in managing e-safety?

The South West Grid for Learning Trust has developed an online tool for settings to use (free following registration) to audit e-safety. The 360 degree safe online tool provides a user friendly and interactive means for schools to review their e-safety provision and to develop an action plan to bring about improvements. Online Compass is a comparative tool for other organisations working with children, e.g. youth groups, childcare providers, voluntary organisations.

Professionals Online Safety Helpline is operated by the UK Safer Internet centre funded by the European Commission to provide a helpline for professionals who work with children and young people in the UK, specifically tackling the area of e-safety. It provides support with all aspects of digital and online issues such as social networking sites, cyber-bullying, sexting, online gaming and child protection online. The helpline aims to resolve issues professionals face about themselves, such as protecting professional identity and reputation, as well as young people in relation to online safety.
