“As our children and young people have more free time it is only natural they will spend more time online. We want to make sure that teachers, parents and carers have all the knowledge they need to keep children safe online. I want to encourage all schools – parents and carers – to use this app. Keeping our children safe and ensuring their mental health and well-being is looked after has never been more important.” (Peter Weir, MLA, Education Minister, Northern Ireland Executive)
The Department of Education Northern Ireland has partnered with INEQE Safeguarding Group to provide the Safer Schools App to support all school staff, parents and carers to keep children in their care safer online.
Stay safe online!
