Online E-safety Checklist for Schools

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility and e-safety is no exception. E-safety is a significant part of the overall safeguarding picture as set out in the DfE Keeping Children Safe in Education, Guidance for Schools and Colleges.

Online E-safety Checklist

To help schools identify key e-safety requirements from the guidance, we have compiled an online checklist for schools. This can be used as a starting point or an aid to reviewing your current e-safety policy and practice.

The 9-point checklist gives you an outline of the necessary action or procedure that needs to take place in your school, with references to additional information and support if you need them.

The E-safety Online Checklist is available to All members - Join FREE Now!

How does it work?

New and existing members can access the checklist from your Dashboard, where you can see your overall progress so far. Click on each category see more information.

Each category gives you an overview of the e-safety/safeguarding requirement in school, with a clear action for you to carry out. There is also an indication of where you can access further advice or information if required.

When you are happy that your school has completed each category, you can record this on the online checklist by placing a tick in the box and adding any supporting notes and evidence if required. Once you confirm that the action has been completed, this is locked and recorded for the current academic year making the checklist an auditable record of your e-safety strategy.

Each academic year beginning 1st September, we will save refresh your checklist and save the previous year as a permanent record of your activity - you can review your annual records and evidence year-on-year performance.

The E-safety Online Checklist is available to FREE members.
Existing members will find the checklist in their Dashboard.
