EduSafe - a bank of free online resources for the school community

In response to customer requests for reliable information that they can signpost to for parents/carers and young people, EduCare has created EduSafe.

Parental engagement and supporting wellbeing

Enabling schools to provide access to free, trusted, resources to parents and carers and their whole school community is an important part of our service to our customers.

EduSafe is an additional layer of support that is exclusively available to all schools who use the EduCare for Education online learning service. There is no additional charge to customers for using this service, it is just part of our commitment to keep our customers up-to-date and help keep everyone safe.

It comprises a bank of online safeguarding and wellbeing support resources that can be shared with, and have been written specifically for, both parents/carers and young people.

What topics are available?

As the focus of Ofsted’s Education Inspection Framework shifts from data and statistics to welfare and wellbeing, we have developed a broad library of resources specifically on duty of care and wellbeing topics.

Currently, the resources cover:

Children and Young People

  • Raising Awareness of Honour-Based Abuse
  • Mental Wellbeing
  • Substance Misuse
  • Bereavement and Loss
  • Food Hygiene and Safety
  • FGM Advice
  • Understanding Low Mood and Depression
  • Understanding Self-Harm
  • Understanding Anxiety
  • Changing Bodies
  • First Aid
  • Healthy Lifestyles

 

 Parents/Carers

  • Mental Wellbeing
  • Substance Misuse
  • Bereavement and Loss Awareness
  • Food Hygiene and Safety
  • Understanding Low Mood and Depression
  • Understanding Self-Harm
  • Understanding Anxiety
  • Changing Bodies
  • Healthy Lifestyles

 

How does this differ to EduCare’s online training courses?

EduCare’s portfolio of 35 online courses are written for senior leaders, teachers, support staff and others who work or volunteer with children and young people in schools and colleges. Completion of each learning course is tracked and a certificate issued once the pass mark has been achieved. This is used to evidence learning for inspection authorities and for continuing professional development.

EduSafe delivers the same level of high-quality content straight to parents or young people themselves, without any need for creating a log in or tracking those completions. Content is accessed online and link to from a customer’s own website, moodle or intranet.

High-quality content

Many customers wanted to capture the information included in EduCare’s portfolio of courses to help inform their community of parents and carers, and the children and young people in their care. EduSafe allows them to deliver consistent messaging on a range of sensitive subjects.

When working with our expert partners to produce our online training courses and where content is appropriate, we simultaneously develop content that can be hosted online and signposted to from our customer schools.

This means that our customers can provide the same, great reliable content to their own community, at no additional cost.

Speaking about the new resources, EduCare’s Pastoral Care Specialist, Dawn Jotham commented:

“Our customers have told us they want content that is written specifically for parents and the young people themselves.

“The resources will help parents/carers to understand safeguarding issues that may affect their children and the young people can also rely on quality resources to help them help themselves and the people they care about.”

Our contributing experts include The Children’s Society, Winston’s Wish, The Children’s Society and Mentor UK. The wide range of subjects embrace mental wellbeing, online safety, first aid, anxiety and healthy relationships.  Each contains ‘need to know’ information and where to go for extra support.
