Framework Summary Description
Whole school consistent approach a
School leadership and management make e-safety a priority across all areas of the school.

All teaching and non-teaching staff can recognise and are aware of e-safety issues. Every member of staff needs to be aware of the risks posed by the online activity of extremist and terrorist groups.

High priority is given to training in e-safety, extending expertise widely and building internal capacity. The Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher and Head of Care have attended WRAP training.

The contribution of pupils, parents, carers and the wider school community is valued and integrated.

Robust and integrated reporting routines a There are school-based reporting routes which are clearly understood.

Staff and students are aware of the CEOP buttons via school assemblies and e-safety workshops. There are clear and respected routes to key members of staff.

Staff are aware of the steps that will be taken if they report suspicions about a child demonstrating extremist behaviour.

Staff a Regular and up-to-date e-safety training is supplied through the annual CPD schedule.

There is one member of staff with a higher level of awareness.

Staff are aware how e-safety training ties in with Prevent training.

Policies a E-safety policies and procedures are in place, contributed to the whole school, updated regularly and ratified by Governors.

Education a There is an age-appropriate curriculum that is flexible, relevant and engages pupils’ interest; it is used to promote e-safety.

Monitoring & Evaluation a Risk assessment is taken seriously and used to good effect in promoting e-safety.

Local authority and police provide contextual information to help the school understand the risk in our area.

Data is used effectively to assess the impact of e-safety practice and how this informs whole school strategy
