What is SafeSkills?

SafeSkills is an interactive online safety diagnostic teaching tool for schools, enabling teachers to monitor progress throughout the year and drill down to school, class and pupil level to identify areas for development. SafeSkills is made up of 8 strands linked to statements from UKCIS Education for a Connected World framework, to help assess young people’s resilience and competency for digital life, as recommended in Keeping Children Safe in Education and RSHE guidance.

Who is it for?

Developed for pupils in transition, higher Primary years 5-6 / lower Secondary years 7-8, SafeSkills will soon have additional features that are also suitable for older pupils with SEND. The individual strands for the quiz can be completed in the classroom or remotely from home as part of a homework assignment.

How does it work?

First, register your school and once we have processed your request, you will receive a teacher admin login – this will take a few days. Then you can sign in (NB - teachers use email and password) and import classes by following the steps below (watch the animation to help you):

  • Select UsersUser Import from the menu. If you have multiple schools, select the relevant one.

  • Download the template file, paste in your pupil details and save it (N.B. to minimise data, we only store the first 2 initials of the surname, but feel free to paste the entire surname as the rest will be stripped off during import)

  • Select Choose File / Upload CSV file / Import Data

Your pupils will now be able to sign in at safeskills.lgfl.net via the Student Login tab.

You will need to give them your 4-digit School Code and their individual User Code, which you can view or export by selecting UsersUser Export

Pupil Login & Feedback

Once you have issued pupil logins (download them from the Users / User Export menu), they simply:

  • click the blue Student Login box from the SafeSkills homepage

  • use the school code and their user code to log in

  • select a quiz from one of the eight themes on the quiz tab

Upon completion of each strand, pupils can download a certificate and also view a summary of areas of achievement and for development, as well as see an overview of their overall progress by strand.

How can I track and assess pupil progress?

Select Insights from the main menu, teachers can:

· see a range of rich data to monitor progress throughout the year

· drill down to school, class and pupil level within each strand, including aggregated scores and percentages

· identify areas for development

Pupil results data can be exported to an Excel or CSV file.
