Social media - interacting with other people online to exchange comments, ideas and innovations - is becoming an increasingly prevalent part of everyone's social life. But should it extend to the workplace, and when boundaries between professional and personal blur, how should we determine what is and is not acceptable? This report provides teachers with an overview of the key issues when it comes to teaching and social media. It clarifies how social media can be a useful educational tool, some useful statistics, safe usage tips and how to avoid being a victim of online abuse. The report includes two case studies and top tips.
Following the launch of the Friendly WiFi scheme, we are delighted to provide an essential guide for teachers.

What makes a password strong? The key to creating a strong password is to understand how your password might be stolen, hacked or guessed. This guidance document gives teaching staff an overview of how this is done, and how you can protect yourself. The information can easily be edited and reproduced for the benefit of students or younger pupils. The guidance includes tips for strong passwords, what to avoid doing when you create a password, and useful links for secure password generation, remembering passwords, and creating an encrypted text file to store your passwords. Password security is a key issue in e-safety for everybody, so it is vital that teaching staff understand this and are able to prove to Ofsted that password security is taken seriously in school
Since 1st July 2015, all schools have a duty under the Counter Terrorism And Security Act to keep children safe from harm, especially from the risks of radicalisation and extremism.
This checklist will help identify the key elements your school should have in place.
The role which the school governor plays in not only developing, but also implementing an e-safety strategy in school is vital.
The Department for Education have highlighted a number of key features of effective practice in relation to online safety in schools and Ofsted have placed greater emphasis on inspecting the effectiveness of the governing body in ensuring that schools meet all of these criteria.
This checklist can be used by school governors as a starting point for assessing the provision in your school.
