SWGfL - E-Safety Wales Project South West Grid for Learning (SWGfL) together with the Welsh Government are launching a project that will consolidate and enhance an esafety strategy for Wales and develop a variety of revolutionary online safety resources specifically adapted for Wales. Focusing on schools, these will include adapting the multi award winning 360 degree safe online safety self review tool that guides schools through better protecting their staff, and children when online.
