Schools need to keep children safe, but it can be difficult to know where strengths and weaknesses are. Schools want internet safety advice that is tailored to school issues, and provided by genuine experts.

Schools can pay for e-safety reviews to be performed by organisations, but many are expensive and lack the expertise to really help schools improve.

Our Online Safety Audit / Review is designed specifically for schools,  and is based on many years of working closely with schools and the knowledge of how schools work.

Online Safety and School Improvement

An Online Safety Review takes approximately three hours with a SWGfL Online Safety Consultant with extensive experience of school improvement and provides an objective assessment of the school’s overall level of online safeguarding maturity.
