E-safety for Teaching and Learning

Teaching and Learning is at the core of e-safety provision in school.  A range of age appropriate resources and activities that offer breadth and progression across all areas of e-safety are essential to ensure all learners have access to a curriculum that meets their needs.  Mapping lessons within the school’s own planning structures provides a good framework for delivering e-safety education at the same time as offering flexibility to adapt activities when considering the school’s own agenda.

The Learning Exchange can provide consultancy, training and resources to embed e-safety across school.
