Organisation Description

National Online Safety has a Whole School Community approach to Online Safety training for schools. Our aim is to equip teachers, parents and children with the knowledge to achieve a safer online world for children. Our NOS Certified School Community package encompasses CPD accredited Online Safety e-learning training course for school staff, an interactive e-learning course for parents and engaging classroom resources to educate children about the dangers of the internet. As Ofsted now place a greater emphasis in Online Safety (formerly e-safety) as part of their safeguarding criteria for inspection, National Online Safety help schools demonstrate outstanding provisions for internet safety.

All school staff who complete the Online Safety for School Staff training course are awarded a CPD accredited certificate to demonstrate as evidence of their training for an Ofsted inspection.

Schools that meet the criteria of implementing a Whole School Community approach to Online Safety are awarded the NOS Certified School Community accreditation and can display a certificate and plaque in their school to evidence their outstanding online safety provisions.
