UKCCIS has launched universal guidelines for providers so that they can provide consistent internet safety messages for parents and children on their services. The work to produce the guidelines was led by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) and the advice was launched on Safer Internet Day February 2012.
Board champion: Peter Davies, Chief Executive Officer, Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP)
Project lead: Jonathan Baggaley, Head of Education, Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP)
Project representatives include:
CEOP will continue to lead this work and the group will now drive up use of the advice, by using UKCCIS networks to encourage providers to use it. The group will also look at how parent and child reports can be handled more effectively by providers. In addition, the group will improve the market for internet safety resources in schools. It will do this by creating a set of principles by which educational publishers can consider entering the market, and by which schools can know that the resources will be high quality.
