What's included in this bundle?

Note: This resource was updated in May 2024 in line with updates to the cyber security standards.

A 15-page fully editable audit document and accompanying action plan that's compliant with the latest safeguarding requirements around filtering and monitoring in KCSIE 2024. The resource guides you through key questions based on the following safeguarding themes:

  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • Reviewing Filtering and Monitoring Provision
  • Harmful and Inappropriate Content
  • Monitoring Safeguarding Needs
  • Cybersecurity

This allows you to identify the strengths and weaknesses around filtering and monitoring with your current IT and school systems, and make a plan to address any areas to improve. 

Who will find this resource useful?

This resource is perfect for designated safeguarding leads (DSLs), senior leaders, headteachers or any senior staff with responsibility for safeguarding. Your IT staff/technicians can also support you with this audit, allowing for open dialogue around how the school's filtering and monitoring systems work (and hopefully without too much difficult-to-understand technical jargon).

What questions does this pack have the answers to?

Keeping Children Safe in Education (2024) states that schools should “ensure appropriate filters and appropriate monitoring systems are in place and regularly review their effectiveness” and they “should be doing all that they reasonably can to limit children’s exposure to the above risks from the school’s or college’s IT system.”

This audit tool allows you to understand where your school currently sits against these requirements and create a plan for improvement, if needed.
