About The Webinar

Online Safety for Governors: Meeting Statutory Online Safety Requirements in Line with DfE Guidance | Primary

Webinar Duration: 47 minutes (approx.)

This webinar will provide governors with an understanding of their role and responsibilities with respect to meeting their DfE statutory online safeguarding requirements and working with their school to implement effective measures to keep children safe online.

The draft Keeping children safe in education guidance 2022 states that “governing bodies and proprietors should ensure online safety is a running and interrelated theme whilst devising and implementing their whole school or college approach to safeguarding and related policies and procedures”. This reflects a subtle change in wording from the current guidance, placing a more direct responsibility on govenors to take ownership of safeguarding children online.

In this webinar, Ella Savell-Boss, international safeguarding trainer and former safeguarding leader with extensive experience of working with schools, discusses the role of the governing body in online safety, how governors can meet DfE expectations and where to look for guidance and support.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding the importance of online safety and DfE statutory expectations with respect to the role of the governor and keeping children safe online.

  • Recognising the necessary measures governing bodies should implement and ensure are in place in line with DfE requirements.

  • Identifying the different types of online risk and how to develop a policies and procedures in line with DfE expectations and best practice.

  • Realising the key points to remember when teaching online safety in the classroom and embedding online safety into all parts of the curriculum.

  • Understanding what to expect from designated safeguarding leads and how to ensure there are relevant filtering systems and the right IT infrastructure in place.
