Common Sense Media in the United States has produced a programme which we believe provides a sound basis to embed E-Safety within the UK school curriculum, from Foundation Stage to Key Stage 5.

To support schools in the UK, SWGfL has produced a series of documents which will signpost schools to the relevant Common Sense Media lesson plans, resources and to additional relevant materials from the UK, Europe and elsewhere. These SWGfL documents indicate the Key Stage that are equivalent to the Common Sense Media (US) age groups.

Safe is a programme of practical activities that develop young people’s skills, self-confidence and safety awareness when using social networking sites. Designed to work on safe social networks, the free materials and teacher resources will enable a school to easily deliver engaging activities and develop digital literacy skills.
