We are proud to announce that our Arc Oakbridge School has been accredited as a ‘National Online Safety Certified School Community’ for a second consecutive year!
The team at Oakbridge have successfully completed a comprehensive online safety training programme demonstrating its commitment to keeping children and young people safe online.
The school has received a National Online Safety Certified School Accreditation and a Safe Remote Education Accreditation for its 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 senior leaders, teachers, all school staff and parents – on how to make the internet a safer place for children.
James Southworth, co-founder of National Online Safety, said: “Congratulations to everyone at Arc Oakbridge 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.”
Arc Oakbridge School offers a calm, low arousal, safe, positive and nurturing place where young people with a primary need of autism (ASC) and associated complex needs can learn and grow. They focus on maximising every individuals’ potential to develop into a confident, secure, well-adjusted and skilled young person who will make a positive contribution to society and live as independent a life as possible.
Congratulations to Arc Oakbridge School on your commitment to Online Safety and safeguarding the children!
