National Online Safety
National Online Safety Overview
“At National Online Safety, it is our mission to make the internet a safer place for children. We will achieve this through equipping school staff, parents and children with the knowledge they need to understand online dangers and how best to react should an incident arise.”
At Throckley Primary School, we are proud members of the National Online Safety Hub. This is a fantastic online resource that provides guidance and advice to parents/carers, staff, governors and children. The content covers every aspect of Online Safety, with specific courses, webinars and top tips for many different situations. National Online Safety Hub is a Certified School Programme and is a complete solution for schools to implement an effective approach to online safety. It has been designed by education professionals to meet the statutory online safety safeguarding duties outlined in the Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE) September 2021 guidance.
Parents and carers
We encourage parents and carers to sign up to this resource. Please use the link below.
It is very important that, when signing up, you state that you are a parent so that you are able to view the correct content. We may direct your attention to specific parts of the hub at various points in the year linked to either national guidance or specific issues involving your child’s class or age range. There are also parent courses that you are able to complete to further develop your own understanding around Online Safety.
It would be wonderful to see as many parents/carers as possible access and engage with this resource. If you have any issues regarding the sign up process, please contact the school via email firstname.lastname@example.org and leave a message and a member of the computing team will call you back to offer assistance.
