Ofsted

Is your school ready for inspection?

E-Safety is now an important part of an Ofsted inspection following the release in June 2012 of the Ofsted school inspection handbook. This included a number of indicators against which a school could evaluate the breadth of its approach to safeguarding.

Ofsted published additional (Section 5) briefing information in September 2013 and this included information on inspecting e-Safety highlighting some key points which schools will need to consider when extending their safeguarding obligations to the online world.

When conducting inspections, from September 2012, Ofsted will be identifying a number of aspects as key features of good and outstanding e-Safety practice.
