Oakfield has been recognised for its commitment to helping pupils stay safe online
Oakfield Primary School (Academy) has successfully completed a comprehensive online safety training programme demonstrating its commitment to keeping children and young people safe online.
The academy has received a National Online Safety Certified School Accreditation for its 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 school staff, senior leaders, teachers and parents – on how to make the internet a safer place for children.
James Southworth, co-founder at National Online Safety, said: "Congratulations to everyone at Oakfield 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 how best to react to any problems."
Haydn Mitton, Headteacher at Oakfield said: "We are incredibly proud to have been awarded this accreditation. It provides the whole community who worked hard to achieve the status with recognition for their work. Most importantly, the journey has helped us explore the concepts of staying safe online as a community, and ensures we continue to have the latest information to actively safeguard all of our children."
We launched our awards with three levels of impact.
