e-safety podcast: a whole school approach to e-safety
During the podcast Alan identifies that in some schools e-safety is still seen as an ICT issue, rather than a safeguarding concern.
Any safeguarding concern needs to be taken seriously and the staff member responsible must have adequate training.
Your school's e-safety policy can create a standardised approach to how e-safety concerns are handled and all key roles in this area should work together to achieve this.
Alan lists the key roles as:
- the governing body
- the senior leadership team
- the ICT coordinator
- the pastoral team.
