Creating an E-Safety Policy? Where do you start?
The SWGfL Template E-Safety Policies have been adopted by local authorities, schools and academies across the UK, and are acknowledged as good practice documents.

The latest versions have been updated following review and support by a Local Authority Audit Team. The templates provide guidance, an indication of what should be included and a flexible approach allowing each school or organisation to challenge, consider and debate. The result will be your very own E-Safety Policy that whilst built on foundation blocks, includes content that makes it unique and relevant for your school or organisation.

The SWGfL Template Policies consist of an overall E-Safety Policy and a series of appendices with more detailed template policies and forms. They can also be found embedded in the links and resources section of the 360 degree safe e-safety self-review tool.
