Last updated on 02 October 2020

Herts for Learning has provided a Model Online Safety Policy, including a range of Acceptable Use Agreements and additional guidance that you may wish to use in your school or setting. Please note that this is a ‘model’ policy and can be adapted to meet the needs of your school/ setting. All adaptations should be risk assessed.

Please insert your school name, logo and policy title to the front page.

If you have any queries please contact

Model online safety policy 2020 (including online safety acceptable use agreements)

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.
