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 â 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.
