Creating an E-Safety Policy The SWGfL Template E-Safety Policies have been adopted by local authorities, schools and academies across the UK, and are acknowledged as good practice documents. The latest versions have been updated following review and support by a Local Authority Audit Team. The templates provide guidance, an indication of what should be included and a flexible approach allowing each school or organisation to challenge, consider and debate.
