Sefton Safeguarding Children Partnership

Online Safety Strategy

"Children and young people need to be empowered to keep themselves safe. At a public swimming pool, we have gates, put up signs, have lifeguards and shallow ends, but we also teach children how to swim."                                      (Dr Tanya Byron, Safer Children in a Digital World (2008))

As part of safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people in accordance with the Children Act  and Working Together to Safeguard Children, Sefton Safeguarding Children’s Partnership have developed this online safety strategy built on four key areas:

  • Policies, practices, and procedures.
  • Education and training.
  • Infrastructure and technology.
  • Standards and inspection.

As a partnership we are committed to raising awareness of online safety issues to all partner organisations and promoting good practice to reduce risks to children and young people when they are online or when using digital electronic technologies.
