Toolkit for Schools

The eSafety Toolkit for Schools is designed to support schools to create safer online environments.

The resources are backed by evidence and support a nationally consistent approach to preventing and responding to online safety issues.  

The resources are categorised into four elements: Prepare, Engage, Educate and Respond. Whether the resources from each element are used on their own or collectively, each contributes to creating safer online environments for school communities.

The Toolkit is flexible in its design so that schools can tailor how they use it, based on the needs of their community. This means that no matter which school a student attends, or what stage the school is at in its online safety journey, they will have the tools to help keep safe online. 

eSafety developed the Toolkit in consultation with government and non-government education sector representatives across every state and territory. It was developed in response to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and the Education Council’s work program to address bullying and cyberbullying.
