The School has received a National Online Safety Certified School Accreditation for its whole school community approach to protecting children in the online world, after completing a comprehensive online safety training programme.
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 school staff, senior leaders, teachers and parents – on how to make the internet a safer place for children.
James Southworth, co-founder at National Online Safety, said:
“We’re really pleased that Haileybury has earned a place in our Certified School community for 2020/2021.
“As a school with boarders, Haileybury has the additional responsibility of keeping their students safe from online risks around the clock. By achieving this certification, they have effectively proved that online safety is a top priority for their school.
“We hope the school will continue to use and share our resources with their students, teachers and parents.”
Craig O’Brien, Assistant Head (Digital Learning) at Haileybury, said:
“National Online Safety provides our entire school community with a plethora of resources and knowledge to keep us informed.
“Knowing that we have an external body of the quality of NOS supplementing our comprehensive internal digital safety programme ensures that we keep abreast of what is a continually changing digital landscape.
