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 about 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, the co-founder of National Online Safety, said:
“Congratulations to everyone at Risedale School 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.”
Mr Scott, Risedale Headteacher, said:
“Our staff and parents are committed to keeping our young people safe online and this accreditation is a testament to our whole-school approach in creating a culture that incorporates the principles of online safety across all elements of school life.”
