Ian Rose, Deputy Headteacher and Safeguarding Lead, said: “The online world is the big difference between growing up now, and growing up 20+ years ago, and we would advise all parents to sign up to this free resources and keep themselves in the loop. Online safety remains a live issue, will not be going away, changes rapidly, and knowledge is very much power – it is this series of circumstances which means the National Online Safety support is critical.”
