We have successfully completed a comprehensive online safety training programme demonstrating our commitment to keeping children and young people safe online.
The online world provides a wealth of opportunities, but with that comes many risks and it’s important that, as a school, we take a proactive approach to ensure our whole community is given up-to-date information and advice to support our young people in staying safe online. This award involved staff and parents working together and is a reflection of our whole school community coming together to support our young people.
We have received a National Online Safety Certified School Accreditation for our whole school community approach to protecting children in the online world.
National Online Safety is a multi-award winning digital training provider with extensive resources in online safety, developed in line with the Department of Education’s statutory requirements.
Its CPD accredited courses and educational resources support UK schools in educating the whole school community in online safety– including all senior leaders, teachers, all school staff and parents – on how to make the internet a safer place for children.
James Southworth, co-founder of National Online Safety, said: “Congratulations to everyone at Magnus Church of England Academy on becoming a National Online Safety Certified School. By completing our training programme, the school has shown its strong commitment to implementing an effective whole school approach to online safety.”
“It can be increasingly difficult for schools and parents to stay ahead of online threats and ensure both children and staff are safeguarded from potentially harmful and inappropriate online material. We arm schools with the knowledge they need to understand online dangers and react in the best way possible to any problems.”
