Moorpark receives 360 Online Accreditation

Moorpark Junior School receives award for Online Safety

                     

An Assessor from the South West Grid for Learning recently visited Moorpark Junior School to review the school’s online safety provision. The Assessor met school staff, parents and carers, Governors and pupils / students and were pleased to find that the school provides a high level of protection for users of digital technologies.

 

The South West Grid for Learning Trust provides the internet connection and a range of other services to schools across the SW region and, as the lead partner in the UK Safer Internet Centre, is in the forefront of national and international developments in online safety.  To enhance these services, they have developed a tool to help schools address online safety issues, not least the changes to Ofsted inspections, which include a stronger focus on safeguarding. The online tool allows schools to evaluate their online safety policy and practice and then suggests how the school might do more to protect young people and staff.

 

To apply for the 360 degree safe Online Safety Mark, schools have to reach a series of benchmark levels when they complete the online self-review. The evidence is then verified by a visit from experienced Assessors.

 

The prime benefit of using the review and applying for the Online Safety Mark is that it does not focus on the individual aspects of online safety such as technological solutions, but instead it integrates online safety into school policy and the curriculum, challenging teachers and leaders in the school to think about their provision and its continual evolution.

 

Schools are expected to show that they have provided a high standard of online safety education and awareness for all staff , students / pupils and also for parents and carers, to ensure that these users of digital technologies can be safe online – whether they are in school, in their homes or out and about using mobile devices.  

 

Following their visit the Assessor reported that:-

 

  • The quality of leadership is extremely high and is a key component of the success that the school has had with both the quality of their online safety provision and the award of the Online Safety Mark.

 

  • The culture of trust and openness has meant that everyone feels empowered to contribute to the school’s developments in online safety. This has led to a high level of passion and involvement with this.

 

  • The school demonstrates a strong ethos of continual improvement.

 

 

Ron Richards, Lead Assessor for the 360 degree safe Online Safety Mark congratulated the school on its success and commented that it was re-assuring to know that the school had put a lot of thought and effort into improving the online  safety of the staff and young people, by addressing these important safeguarding issues.

 

Moorpark would also like to thank EVOLVE I.T for all their support during this process and for providing the school with excellent technical support.
