Advice from Naace about the Ofsted e-safety briefing

In the latest news from Naace, their CEO, Mark Chambers has stated that "The whole issue of use of technology in a school is rightly a matter on which the Head and Governors must exercise leadership. This is not only a matter of helping children stay safe. We can see from schools gaining the ICT Mark and 3rd Millennium Learning Award just how much a school's educational offering to its pupils is improved when the school takes full advantage of what technology offers. It is great to see Ofsted acknowledging the 'unimaginable opportunities' for learning now available to learners in schools who embrace technology enhanced learning.”

Naace also comment that some schools are dealing with e-safety successfully by engaging their young people in the e-safety process and they ensure school systems are not 'locked down', so that pupils can gain experience of how to stay safe online when not in school.

This highlights the Ofsted e-safety recommendation to "manage the transition from locked down systems to more managed systems to help pupils understand how to manage risk; to provide them with richer learning experiences; and to bridge the gap between systems at school and the more open systems outside school."

At E-safety Support we are committed to helping schools to create a comprehensive school policy on e-safety, which will help to keep pupils and staff safe online. Find out more about the E-safety Support school resources available now.
