Online Safety

North Yorkshire County Council has worked in partnership with a range of agencies to develop the ‘Online safety guidance for schools and settings in North Yorkshire’ with the overall aim of the document to support schools implement an effective online safety policy and curriculum that meets the requirements for their school community.

Education and Skills also offer a range of training opportunities for schools in relation to online safety for more information please contact North Yorkshire Education Services or contact Clare Barrowman, Health and Wellbeing Adviser at clare.barrowman@northyorks.gov.uk , Tel: 01609 536808

Parents and Carers also have a crucial role in safeguarding children against some of potential risks online. To support parents and carers talk to their children about these important aspects of safety the following websites may be useful.
