Online Safety Model Policy 2020 updated

This model online safety policy has been updated by Herts For Learning. Schools are recommended to personalise this policy and ensure it meets the needs of the school. Schools may wish to adopt all or parts of this policy and in both of these instances, a  school level risk assessment should be carried out. The green font in the document is just to help identify the changes/ additions to this version .  An appendix of resource documents has been added for guidance to help schools develop a remote education section to their policy if this is applicable to their practice and setting.
