Safeguarding children online in early years settings

The UK Council for Internet Safety has published guidance to help those working in early years settings consider their practice and take steps to safeguard both children and adults online. There are two guides: ‘Online Safety Considerations for Managers’ and ‘Online Safety Guidance for Practitioners’.

The first is aimed at managers of early years settings and features a checklist with key questions to help managers reflect and evidence their existing practice, and a range of resources that can help develop an approach to online safety that meets statutory guidance. The second guide is to help staff understand their role in promoting online safety and wellbeing of children in their care. It includes a list of resources that can be used to safeguard children, parents and themselves online.
