DSLs in Independent Schools
face key concerns when it comes to digital safety:

Privacy, parental expectations, reputation, loco parentis and out of hours, bring your own device and peer pressure, all make digital safeguarding a complex matter in an independent school.

Online dangers are not going away. In fact the number of high profile cases of cyberbullying and drugs involving independent schools are on the rise.

By adopting a child centred approach to safeguarding DSLs can make great strides in ensuring students and staff are protected at every digital touch-point.
