We used to have a lot of one off activities: campaigns on this or that topic or threat; a lesson plan here and a toolbox there. What was lacking, however, was a sustainable framework where schools could actually develop a comprehensive policy on all the issues concerned. The eSafetyLabel offers precisely this and helps schools to pay attention to different aspects of online safety.

To me, eSafety Label is a valuable tool to primarily prevent harmful activities on the internet and being an eSafety Label+ Ambassador gives me and my team a chance to promote this fantastic project together with the principles of security in its deeper aspects.

After all the hard work and my commitment to improving online safety in my school since 2014, becoming an eSafety Label+ Ambassador has so far been incredibly gratifying. What is more, I have access to a European team with whom I can share information, experiences and best practices.

With online threats becoming an ever increasing part of our lives, the eSafety Label and the protection it offers in terms of guidance, protocols, etc. has never been more relevant for today’s school ecosystems.

Nowadays we need to prepare teens to perform in jobs which still don’t exist today, which means we also need to address issues which are still not tackled in the curriculum. I think this is where the eSafety Label comes and plays a crucial role in sharing best practices across Europe!
The best part of eSafety Label is that it can be a vehicle for children, to take their newly acquired skills and knowledge on online safety at home - therefore not only taking advantage of ICT tools to the fullest in perfect safety but perhaps even sharing these skills with their parents!
The most inspiring aspect of my work with eSafety Label + Ambassadors was to see the teachers’ commitment to the eSafety Label concept and the kind of motivation I saw in their efforts to become involved even further by promoting it and actively contributing to it.

eSafety Label+ is more than just a project about online safety for teachers, schools and pupils, it ultimately concerns parents as well!!

Online safety plays an important role in today’s digital society, but with trends and issues changing as fast as they appear it is hard to keep up. The eSafety Label provides practical solutions to this challenge and helps schools to build their own eSafety eco-system.

The eSafety Label filled the gap in a largely nonexistent pan-European system of support for school staff to ensure that their pupils’ safety online. Today, thanks to our Community, teachers from across Europe and beyond can consult and share best practices with their peers, while at the same time receiving expert advice and guidance in terms of how their online safety policies, infrastructure and practice can be improved.
