'The Department for Education published their revised ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ statutory guidance on May 26th ahead of its activation on 5th September 2016. This is relevant to schools and colleges across England and introduces a number of notable changes and updates with regards online safety.

Given the guidance is 75 pages in length, SWGfL, as part of UK Safer Internet Centre, has helpfully highlighted the revised changes, together with what this may mean. Alongside most references, we have also signposted resources and services that may help. Simply skip through the Prezi to highlight the references, interpretation and associated resources.'
