Training provider National Online Safety uses resources developed in line with the Department of Education’s statutory requirements to educate school staff, senior leaders, teachers and parents in making the internet a safer place for children.

James Southworth, co-founder of National Online Safety, said: “Congratulations to everyone at Ashton Primary School on becoming a National Online Safety Certified School.

“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.
