The Professionals Online Safety Helpline has seen a growth of ‘online reputation issues’ reported to us. In 2023, almost 50% of call cases handled by the helpline were related to the school or teachers’ online reputation. As a recommendation from our previous annual reports, we have created this guidance to help schools navigate these issues and better understand what resources they have to manage issues of online reputation.
