"We felt it was a very useful experience as it enabled us to stand back from the day to day e-safety events / routines to look at what we did well and what we needed to work on."

"I found the tool very useful. It does not have the repetition that I have found with other online assessment tools and includes a number of very useful links that helped with the process. The tool allowed us to recognise areas that we need to improve and offered advice on how to do this. The only improvement that I would suggest is that it might include links to more technical aspects and provide information/ links to software that could be used in ensuring systems are safe. The feedback given during the school visit was extremely helpful."

"A very good assessment morning that was very rigid and provided us with a chance to see exactly where our gaps are that could be fixed."

"We found the process to be very valuable and practical in terms of enabling us to set a clear action plan and involve all staff in the process."
