James Southworth, co-founder at National Online Safety, said: “Congratulations to everyone at Great Waltham Primary school 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.”
Mr Burden, Headteacher at Great Waltham C of E Primary said: We are very proud to receive this accreditation. The online world is here to stay and the young children we educate are not really aware of how quickly the electronic age has arrived. In schools, it provides tremendous learning tools and pathways to communication and knowledge. But, we are acutely aware of the dangers that exist in the online world. The challenges of 2020 have seen children and adults alike use online technology on a very regular basis so this must remain an absolute priority in schools. Only constant CPD, monitoring and education is going to keep us all safe. I would like to say thank-you to NOS to providing such clear and robust resources and to our stakeholders for embracing the training for us to receive the accreditation. ”
