Safer Schools App
Created by the Department of Education for Northern Ireland, the Safer Schools App is designed to support parents and carers, as you keep the children and young people in your care safer online. The App will provide you with information on how you can make your home and devices safer. It gives you an in-depth understanding of Social Media and the benefits and risks of apps such as Snapchat, Instagram and Houseparty to name but a few.
The App will also provide you with more information on inspiring healthy media habits and screen time, as well as making you aware of scams and keeping personal information safer online. The in-app Safety Centre also provides you with up-to-date information on how to block, mute and report anything you or your child may find worrying or upsetting online, from images to comments from online bullies.
Simply download the PDF document above and follow the instructions to register as a parent within the app to stay up to date with important information regarding online safety.
