Chris Skinner, our Senior Online Safety Consultant, presents his monthly roundup of news and analysis from the digital world – a highly informative selection of updates which can help to keeping all staff compliant with the latest statutory guidance.

The DfE guidance ‘Keeping children safe in education’ recommends that all staff stay up to date with recent developments and emerging risks in the digital world to ensure compliance with statutory government guidance relating to online safety in schools. 

Our dedicated team are constantly monitoring a wide range of sources to ensure that we keep you informed. This video update is designed to give you an overview of the most relevant online safety news stories from the past month. 

Please note: the stories in this newsletter have largely been compiled using UK media sources and (while many of them are globally relevant) therefore tend to focus on the online safety issues and concerns of British users. Any advice given or implied is aligned to online safeguarding guidance issued by the UK Government. We advise overseas users to check the exact legislation and the guidance of governing bodies in their local territory with respect to the use of apps, games and devices.
