Ofsted released the latest version of their school inspection handbook on June 22 which now features e safety.  With the inclusion of e Safety, Ofsted (from September) have a range of indicators that evaluate the breadth of a schools safeguarding strategy to include the virtual spaces in which staff, pupils and their families work and socialise. 

A great place to begin to review and map your readiness for this may be to use 360 degree safe (www.360safe.org.uk), the free online self review tool for schools from SWGfL.
