Helping governors understand their digital safeguarding responsibilities
"In judging the effectiveness of leadership and management, inspectors must also judge whether the school’s arrangements for safeguarding pupils are effective, and whether those responsible for governance ensure that these arrangements are effective."
- Ofsted School Inspection Handbook.
The role which the school governor plays in not only developing, but also implementing an e-safety strategy 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. Governors also need to challenge and support their SLT if they are falling short.
To help your school governors learn more about their e-safety responsibilities, they can complete this bespoke online training course, written by e-safety consultant, Tim Pinto who has a vast experience of working in education and digital safeguarding. He is also a member of the CEOP Education Advisory Board.
