E-Safety for Professionals



Manchester Safeguarding Children Board has an active E-safety Subgroup that meets on a quarterly basis. The work of the sub-group is directed by the MSCB E-safety Strategy.

In February 2011, MSCB revised the Minimum Standards Document for E-safety which offers clear guidance and support for agencies in developing appropriate practice and policies for safeguarding children when using information and communication technology.

In addition MSCB offers two training programmes for e-safety:

  1. E-safety Awareness
    A half day briefing for anyone working with children and young people.
  2. Safeguarding Children Online - E-safety Leads Training
    Training specifically for those in schools and other agencies carrying out the role of E-safety Lead or Officer.

For more information on the work of the subgroup or training, please contact Sue Hargreaves
