National Online Safety

We are excited to launch parental access to our new National Online Safety platform.

The online world is posing an ever-increasing risk to children, and it is important that schools, parents and carers work together to take an active role in teaching children about online dangers. Learning how to act safely when using the internet is an incredibly important part of safeguarding our children. 

We are therefore delighted to announce that the White Rose Federation has shown our commitment to protecting our pupils online by working with National Online Safety providing resources for all parents and carers. 

The resources include Parents & Carers courses (presented by Myleene Klass), online video resources and weekly guides covering a huge range of topics, including: 

· Online Relationships · Fake Profiles & Social Bots · Online Bullying · Online Grooming · Child Sexual Exploitation · Sexual Harassment & Violence · Sexting · Live Streaming · Online Identity · Screen Addiction · Online Challenges · Overspending · Social Media Platforms · Online Gambling · Radicalisation, Terrorism & Extremism · Age Inappropriate Content · Copyright & Ownership · Hacking · Fake News · Online Fraud · Online Reputation · Personal Data · Pornography · Targeted Adverts & Pop-Ups · The Dark Web · Games & Trends

We are proud to announce that Barlow School has successfully completed a comprehensive online safety training programme demonstrating its commitment to keeping children and young people safe online.

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 Barlow C of E Primary 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.”
