Advice for bullying outside of school: 

Best practice

Schools should have policies in place to encourage:

  • good behaviour towards others
  • the prevention of all forms of bullying

Find out more about writing your own e-safety policy on the SWGfL website (opens in a new window).


If you loan or buy equipment for children and young people to use at home, you should:

  • provide e-safety training
  • check the kit for sensitive/illegal material once it is returned

E-safety tools

For schools, SWGfL offer 360 degree safe (opens in a new window), an e-safety self review tool. It aims to help:

  • make good e-safety policies and aim for best practice
  • find strengths and sort weaknesses
  • get the whole school engaged
  • move the school from a basic offering to a best practice way of working

Online Compass (opens in a new window) is for any other group that works with young people, such as:

  • a nursery
  • a library
  • a youth group
  • a sports club

It helps you:

  • review the safety of your group
  • improve your safety using expert advice
  • celebrate progress with a series of awards
