the tool

Self-evaluate your school’s level of cybersafety against best practice.

By completing a short online survey you can get a clear snapshot of where your school stands on its online safety journey, measured against standards of best practice.

Register by email on, and you’re good to go! Relative to your school size your dashboard will give you a specific number of leaders, teachers and pupils who must complete the short online survey, which takes approximately 10 minutes. Once the surveys are complete you can submit the results and we do the rest.
