E-safety: the experience in English educational establishments

An audit of e-Safety practices: 2005

Becta have published a very interesting report detailing an audit of e-Safety practices in Schools in England.

The report presents the findings of research examining e-safety – the risks associated with the use of new technologies – in English schools and colleges in 2005. It is based on a survey of 444 schools, in-depth interviews with 61 teachers, a survey of 25 English Local Education Authorities (LEAs) and five Regional Broadband Consortia (RBCs). It examines:

  • the technical safety measures being used in schools and colleges to reduce the risks to children
  • policies and procedures that are currently in place to manage e-safety in educational environments
  • programmes of e-safety education aimed at pupils, parents and teachers
  • how schools and colleges access and use the support that is available to them
  • models of good practice that reduce risk and could be shared with others.
