About The Webinar

Adapting your Online Safety Policy for 2020 + Free Online Safety Template

Webinar Runtime: 59 Minutes

This webinar will provide senior leaders, headteachers, DSLs and online safety leads with practical advice and guidance on how to develop and adapt their online safety policy for 2020. In addition, to accompany the webinar, you will receive a free template online safety policy for schools.

The advent of remote learning over the last three months has meant that children are increasingly spending more time online. While the DfE have issued interim guidance, it is essential that children continue to be kept safe online and that all schools have an online safety policy that is reflective of their current statutory requirements, engages the whole school community and can easily be shaped to prepare for future policy developments.

In this webinar, Christina Leath, experienced safeguarding expert and author of the NOS Online Safety Policy template, discusses how schools should look to adapt their online safety policy in line with recent government guidance and legislation. She will explore the key areas around policy development, staff responsibilities and online safeguarding for remote learners.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding your statutory duties in response to remote learning and adapting your online safety policy in line with DfE guidance.

  • Recognising the importance of engaging the whole school community and developing a policy that involves all key stakeholders.

  • Identifying how policies may differ for primary and secondary settings and considering what constitutes a strong/weak policy.

  • Building and writing a policy, exploring the key parts and understanding when and how it should be updated.

  • Recognising where and how to access the policy when needed, who requires access and ensuring it is fit for purpose in 2020 and for the future.
