A new whitepaper covering e-Safety law and Academies has been released by Smoothwall today.
Researched and written by the noted expert in the field, Dr. Brian Bandey - it covers the legal environment for Academies of both Internet and email misuse by both students and staff.
Unlike a Local authority controlled schools, Academies are employers and land-owners. As such additional areas of law which attach to e-Safety and e-Safeguarding of both staff and pupils arise. Most education management teams are usually not well-accustomed to measuring, accommodating and taking decisions on forms of exposure that are exclusively law-based and which usually arise exclusively in the corporate sector.
This new whitepaper addresses each area of applicable law individually and provides an outline on which Governors, senior management and teaching staff can start to understand this complex area of law.
