123Safe Online Safety Training and Workshops
Online safety is a vital part of safeguarding in schools and academies. The demand for online safety related CPD has increased significantly since OFSTED included “behaviour and safety” as a criteria for their inspections. In order to comply, schools should have systems for preventing inappropriate internet use and cyberbullying. It also plays a major part of the computing curriculum and our team of online safety experts and CEOP ambassadors are ideally placed to support teachers with advice and resources.
