We work closely with schools throughout the UK to deliver and support their ICT and Secure Internet Services and are regularly asked questions about how to keep children safe through their use of digital technologies and the development of e-safety policies and teaching practices.
We have therefore created a list of the Frequently Asked Questions which we hope you will find useful. Please read through the list and if you need further information, urgent advice or to report abuse please visit our section on Links and Important Contacts.

"I often get requests to help schools with their E-Safety provision. NCI's E-Safety resources are valuable, comprehensive and easy to access. I will certainly recommend that the professionals I advise look carefully at them in future and I have already included a link to them on the E-Safety area of my school's website."
