The eSafety Label is a European-wide accreditation and support service for schools aiming to drive forward the development and maintenance of high standards of eSafety. 

It includes:
  • Accreditation
Schools can review their own eSafety practices against internationally-agreed standards. When they put forward evidence of their practice, they can be accredited as an eSafety-certified school. On completion of the self-assessment process, they will receive a personalised action plan to enable them to develop further their level of eSafety practice. They can also see where their school stands compared to other schools in their own country and abroad.
 
  • Resources
The portal provides schools with an ever-growing set of resources: eSafety advice and guidance, fact sheets, checklists and templates.
 
  • Online community
Users and experts exchange tips, resources, advice and information on eSafety issues, help each other and share examples of effective practice.
 
Participating schools in Portugal include those from inland Portugal, Azores and the Madeira islands and also the Portuguese School from Mozambique. Using this map, you can get to know the Portuguese schools that are participating in the project.
 
Until now, a total of 138 Portuguese schools have been awarded an eSafety label, from which one gold and four silver labels are highlighted in the map.
