Online Safety

Online Safety

At Gosforth Park First School, online safety lessons are taught throughout the year and are regularly revisited to explain how to stay safe online to children from Reception to Year 4.

In February each year we take part in ‘Safer Internet Day’ to reinforce our online safety lessons and raise awareness of a safer and better internet for al.

We are aware children will come in to contact with additional technologies outside of school and therefore we have provided the links below to support parents/carers to keep their children safe online and offer additional support.

In September, the NSPCC delivered a webinar on 'Keeping children safe online' for parents/carers.

A recording of this webinar can be found below:

The National College

We’re delighted to let you know that we have become a member of The National College – a multi-award-winning online training provider for staff and parents.

What does this mean for you?

As part of our membership, The National College provides dedicated training and resources for parents and carers – particularly, around online safety and keeping children safe online.

Online safety advice on any topic

Of course, staff will continue to teach children about the risks online. But with the internet so readily accessible, the most effective approach to online safety needs everyone involved, including parents and carers.

That’s why you’ve now got access to hundreds of courses, explainer videos and online safety guides to support your awareness of the online world. Topics range from understanding apps like TikTok and Instagram to recognising the signs of online harm and what you can do to help.

Sign up is easy

Signing up to the platform is simple. Ask at the office for an enrolment link and complete your details. Once you’re set up, you’ll be able to choose ‘Parent/Carer’ as your user type and get instant access to all training and resources.

Download the app for free

Another fantastic benefit of The National College is its National Online Safety app, which you can download for free. It gives you access to all their parent and carer resources on the go, whenever you want.

They’re always here to help

The National College has a brilliant support team if you have any questions. Their help centre provides a comprehensive bank of answers to most FAQs, but if you still can’t find the answer you’re looking for, you can always get in contact with them.

We hope you’ll sign-up and make the most of their resources.
