Your legal obligations

With effect from the 5th September 2016 all schools are legally required to put in place strengthened measures to protect children from harm online. The DfE’s statutory guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (September 2016) includes specific reference to Online Safety in annex C. By law, schools are required to have in place appropriate filters and monitoring systems, so that no child can access harmful content via the school’s IT systems and concerns can be spotted quickly.

The use of technology is now a significant component of many safeguarding issues including:

  • Radicalisation
  • Child sexual exploitation
  • Cyberbullying

The guidance calls for all schools to employ effective online safeguarding mechanisms in order to empower children and safeguard them against online danger.

Fourlanesend CP School

We find the newsletters very useful. They are posted in our staff room and go out with our newsletter. They help us as a school keep our parents and community up to date and informed with current issues regarding online safety. We have also asked advice from Jane McFall. Not only has she responded quickly by email giving us relevant links that we can use for training she has also called us to discuss the issue. To have a specialist in online safety who can advise you is imperative and we can't get it anywhere else.
