About The Webinar

How Ofsted will Inspect Online Safety: What Schools Need to Know

This webinar will help school leaders and school staff to understand exactly how and what Ofsted will inspect in relation to e-safety. It will cover key Ofsted criteria as well as outlining best practice models for schools to consider.

The Ofsted Education Inspection Framework (EIF) makes it clear that schools should develop a culture of e-safety. Inspectors will aim to gather first-hand information that students are protected from online harm and know how to keep themselves safe online.

They will speak to the whole school community. This webinar will provide schools with an invaluable insight into the Ofsted standards that they need to meet around online safety.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding the three categories of online risk and developing a culture of e-safety

  • Recognising how Ofsted will gather evidence on e-safety using deep dive methodology

  • Exploring key Ofsted inspection criteria and identifying who an inspection will apply to

  • Identifying e-safety provision around policy, practice, infrastructure, education and training

  • Highlighting good and poor practice and exploring sample inspection questions

Online Safety

The webinar was very informative. It allowed me to think about what our school is doing and to question what needs to be improved. I thought it was interesting and it gave me understanding of why we should not block/lock systems down but instead to educate our pupils further. And also that we are living in an ever changing technological world and we as educators have a duty to keep up with it.

It has been a good experience as it was quite informative and we could do this in our own pace.

Key Webinar for all Schools

This webinar gives not only key information about being ready for Ofsted but also what you should be doing as a school to keep students and staff safe online. I feel I have a plan going forward to ensure the students are safe and that we can be outstanding at our next inspection.
Carolyne Le Mare, Computing Lead/Teacher - Carwarden House Community School

Do I Know enough about what pupils are watching?

I am very aware that my use and knowledge of current apps and sites is quite different to those popular with pupils. Good online safety education focused on realistic use and practice ensures access to help and safeguarding when its needed.. This will help pupils use the technology assured that there is defined acceptable practice and behaviour.
