Schools may wish to review the existing arrangements to ensure they are appropriate during school closures, or if additional or alternative arrangements need to be put in place.

Schools should consider signposting to the practical support that’s available for reporting harmful or upsetting content as well as bullying and online abuse.

Harmful or upsetting content
