A SOLIHULL Primary school has been teaching its entire school community on how to make the internet a safer place for children.

Yorkswood Primary School in Solihull has successfully completed an online safety training programme resulting in a National Online Safety Certified School Accreditation for its whole school community approach to protecting pupils – including all school staff, senior leaders, teachers and parents.

James Southworth, co-founder at National Online Safety, a multi-award-winning digital training provider with extensive resources in online safety, developed in line with the Department of Education’s statutory requirements, said:  “We’re so pleased to welcome Yorkswood Primary into our certified school community.

“By earning this certification, they’ve shown their commitment to keeping their entire school community safe online. This is a fantastic step forward for the digital safeguarding of children in and around Solihull, particularly during these turbulent times.”

Mr Tunstall, headteacher at Yorkswood, said: “This is an important aspect of the school’s work, especially at this time of increased emphasis on home learning. We have made great strides in offering devices to those who may not have them and being able to make sure that our learners are safe is at the forefront of our thoughts.”
