‘The use of technology has become a significant component of many safeguarding issues. Child sexual exploitation, radicalisation, sexual predation, technology often provides the platform that facilitates harm. An effective approach to online safety empowers a school or college to protect and educate the whole school or college community in their use of technology and establishes mechanisms to identify, intervene in and escalate any incident where appropriate.’
This document has been created as a guideline for good practice from the point of view of Unique Voice. The ideas within this document are grounded in information from the Department of Education, the Safer Internet Centre and the company’s own experience and practice.
From our experiences working with young people, we have gained an in-depth understanding of online safety & its surrounding issues.
Our suggestions and advice are based on our own good practice and from research on schools’ current policies. The skills learnt cover online safety for key stages KS1, KS2 and KS3.
