Empowering Schools to Improve Online Safety
Schools need to keep children safe, but it can be difficult to know where your strengths and weaknesses are. The DfE's Keeping Children Safe in Education guidance sets out a number of online safety steps schools need to take in Annex C.
Schools can pay for online safety reviews to be performed by other organisations, but many lack the expertise to really help schools improve.
Our Self-Review approach is also more empowering, helping schools to own their improvements themselves.
360 degree safe provides schools with free access to our online safety expertise, and helps school to both identify and demonstrate improvement in online safety provision.
In partnership with Scottish Government, we have created a version of the tool for schools in Scotland and in partnership with Welsh Government, a dedicated tool for schools in Wales, 360 safe Cymru, is available.
360 degree safe is a well-designed, user friendly, online tool for schools to review their online safety provision. It helps them identify strengths / weaknesses & develop an improvement action plan
