The Safer Schools App helps to educate, empower and protect children and those charged with helping to keep them safe as they navigate the world of technology and social media.
Download the “Safer Schools” app from your app store. When you have downloaded the app you need a PIN number to access the resources. Parents, staff and student all have different PIN numbers. Please email Tirath Lal for the parent PIN on [email protected] Student codes are advertised on the We CARE boards around the academy.
Parents and carers have access to information on the popular social media platforms used by their children and their friends. You are also provided with an insight on critical issues such as bullying, sexting and gaming and are given easy to follow advice on how they can make their homes and the devices they give their children safer. Parents can build their level of confidence by completing Parental Digital Proficiency tests in the App
Important Note – When you set up the app, it is really useful to enable the notifications because it lets you know when there are any changes to privacy settings on different sites and social media platforms as well as any information that you might need to know about new features of apps that your children might be using that you are not aware of yet. We are really excited about this resource that we can share with you and hope that it is as useful as we think it can and will be.
