Compliance with KCSiE and the Prevent Duty is now routinely inspected as part of Ofsted's Common Inspection Framework. In fact online safety has become a key area of focus within inspections for both Ofsted and the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) with schools expected to demonstrate a 'culture of vigilance' in all areas.

The Independent Schools Inspectorate is an organisation responsible for the inspection of independent schools in England which are members of organisations affiliated to the Independent Schools Council.

Their vision is that all children and young people in independent education are safe, secure and well educated.
