Newcomen Primary School

National Online Safety Centre

We are delighted to announce that Newcomen Primary School has been recognised for its commitment to helping pupils stay safe online. 

Newcomen Primary School is now a National Online Safety Certified School!

We have successfully completed a comprehensive online safety training programme demonstrating our commitment to keeping children and young people safe online. We have received a National Online Safety Certified School Accreditation for our 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 accredited courses and educational resources support UK schools in educating the whole school community in online safety– including all senior leaders, teachers, all school staff and parents on how to make the internet a safer place for children.  

“Congratulations to everyone at Newcomen 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 react in the best way possible to any problems.”  James Southworth, co-founder of National Online Safety. 

Online Safety is a whole school priority and I would like to thank all of our stakeholders in enabling us to achieve this award. We would especially like to thank our families for your support and commitment. Without you, this award would not be achievable.
