SAFER SCHOOLS APP
The Department of Education currently has an app on the Safer Schools platform which has been provided by iNEQE Safeguarding Group.
The app gives parents/carers information and support on keeping children and young people safe online and includes tips on scams, privacy and reporting issues and the use of social media platforms, as well as resources linked to COVID-19.
The app can be downloaded from either the App Store or Google Play Store. The relevant QR code to gain access to the app, after download, is contained in the Safer Schools image. Alternatively, parents may use the access code: 7440.
