The Stockport Safeguarding Children Board E-safety sub-group has produced some generic guidance (PDF 434kb) for individual workers guidance on safer working practice to support staff as they work with children & young people and their families.

You may be required to accept this as an online document or physically sign it as a paper document. The Stockport Safeguarding Children Board e-safety sub group has produced RUP exemplars (Word 609kb).
