360 degree safe recognises that all schools and academies have differing pressures, characteristics and attributes but all commonly wanting to assess and improve their wider online safety provision. Whilst 360 is available and free for all schools and academies to use, 360 for Academy Groups has been created to enhance a leadership team’s ability to build a global active picture of online safety provision and compliance across the whole group.
Often sending out instructions or websites links is not enough - it is easy, for example, to signpost your academies to 360 degree safe, however how do you know if they are using it? how do you know if they have major weaknesses?
Applying the Power of Intelligent Data
360 for Academy Groups presents you with a data dashboard, clearly and easily highlighting the aggregated performance of both your entire group and individual academies. Strengths and weaknesses standout, making it obvious where to target provision and support intelligently and accurately. This enhanced access clearly enables Academy Group leaders to monitor the performance and progress of their own Academies; detailing who’s active, areas of best practice and area where attention and intervention are needed.
360 for Academy Groups, offers the ability to successfully and effectively drive your wider online safety improvement strategy. The most recent analysis of the 360 data by Plymouth University clearly evidences this. The report compares the aggregated ratings data from two neighbouring areas, concluding that there is a clear difference between the two data sets.
Due to our work in these regions, we know there is far more strategic activity in the strongest region around online safety policy and practice and schools engaged across the region in school improvement. With such geographical proximity and similar demography, we can show from the database that engagement with the topic does have an impact on practice and policy overall
