Example online safety policy statement and agreement

Last updated: 28 Feb 2022 Topics: Online safety

Every organisation that works with children needs to have an online safety policy statement, which sets out your commitment to keeping children and young people (as well as staff and volunteers) safe online. You should also set out your expectations about how children and young people should use the internet safely within your organisation.

We've created an example online safety policy statement and an example online safety agreement, which you should tailor according to the context of your organisation.

These should form part of your overall child protection and safeguarding measures and be used alongside a set of more detailed procedures and an overarching code of conduct for keeping children safe online.
