What a great way to start a new school year

It's always nice to start a new school year on a positive note and that is exactly what 19 schools are doing after receiving the 'E-Safety Mark' award for excellence in online safety practice.

The award is the culmination of some amazing work by the schools in online safety using the SWGfL 360 degree safe tool. We wanted to say a huge congratulation to them all on their outstanding achievement.

The 360safe tool is now used by over 10,000 schools in the UK. We have also introduced another tool to the 360 family 360 data. Helping schools and businesses look after their personal data. If you would like to know more about wither platform then please have a look a 360safe.org.uk or 360data.org.uk or speak to a member of our team who would be happy to help.
