04/21/10 Training For E-Safety Are all your support staff, as well as your teaching staff trained and confident Using Technology safely Are governors trained and Instrumental in the design and implementation of E-Safety measures And policy Your children are E-Safe savvy When questioned, they know; Policy, procedure, and what to Do when they are worried You use the students as mentors for beginners, Whether that is staff or New students. Parents and Carers are also Confident in their use of Technology With a view to E-Safety And supporting their children Training has taken place However, staff have not cascaded Essential information. There is little impact on what the children know or understand Children have some or Little understanding Of dangers posed by the use of technology
04/21/10 Acceptable/Responsible use Policy is completed for ALL staff, Students and visitors to the school Assessment & Standards For E-Safety Your children respect their Technological environment Your children feel safe online and are Clearly aware of how to stay safe There is clear and rigorous Guidance and understanding of How to deal with cyber-bullying However, the latter rarely happens Children quickly and confidently engage and experiment With new and emerging technologies Children lack Awareness of how to stay safe online Children get most Of their E-Safety ‘Savvy’ Off their own backs There is a log of Regular cyber-bullying incidents
04/21/10 The curriculum & E-Safety E-Safety is delivered implicitly And explicitly throughout The curriculum, it DOES NOT sit In the domain of ICT lessons We have outside trainers And speakers come in and Update staff and students Monitoring and revision of the Curriculum's Interaction with Technology is rigorous and frequent We avoid ‘reactive’ situations and Incidents through a policy and ethos of Responsible use for ALL users We rely on the LA’s Filtering policy to make Sure our children are safe The ICT department Sort out AUP’s and E-Safety policy... We go and see the Head of ICT when there is an issue We change our E-Safety Policy following an incident e.g. Breaches of security, cyber-bullying E-Safety incidents have A swift and positive outcome
04/21/10 Leadership & Management for E-Safety Staff and students are ALL aware of procedure When there is an E-Safety incident Our AUP/RUP is devised and Agreed upon by ALL stakeholders; from Students to parents to governors We have evaluative comments Regarding E-Safety in our SEF ALL actions taken are based On rigorous self assessment, including, E-Safety...This has an OUTSTANDING Impact on E-Safety in our School community We still have regular Difficulties/E-Safety incidents in and out of school And when educated off site Incidents are put into a log book In the schools Network room or teachers inform the Network manager....it is unlikely that changes to policy are heavily influenced by these logs, there would be little evidence to support this. We have an Acceptable Use Policy that students and parents sign At the beginning of the year Staff and Students are aware Of the LEVELS/CLASSIFICATIONS Of incidents and how to proceed
Safeguarding issues are a limiting judgement
E-Safety is inadequate in your school if:
Your school relies on outside agencies (e.g. LA filtering) to keep children safe
E-Safety is considered an ICT issue in your school and not embedded in the safeguarding children arena
Your children do not feel safe
Even if there is general understanding of e-safety and children feel safe. there is still the tendency to ‘lock down and ban’ rather than deliver a responsible use policy
