National Online Safety Certified School

Callands CP School has successfully completed a comprehensive online safety training programme demonstrating its commitment to keeping children and young people safe online.

Callands CP School has received a National Online Safety Certified School Accreditation for its whole school 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 Callands CP School 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.”

Web filtering and parental controls

Here at Callands CP School, we have appropriate filters in place through Smoothwall filtering and monitoring to ensure that our children are kept safe online whilst they learn. We feel that it is also important for us to guide parents to ensure that they have filters and have parental controls in place to protect their children when they are online at home.

Although broadband, mobile and WiFi providers offer filters to limit inappropriate content, these usually have to be set manually. The following link will take you to an informative resource which gives individual step by step videos and instructions to set up parental controls for many providers. We would encourage you to take a look at these to ensure that you have everything correctly in place in order to keep your child safe.


National Online Safety also provides parent guides to support you in setting up parental controls on specfic devices, follow the link below and search parental controls:


Help and advice for children

If you find something on the internet or someone has made you sad or scared, you should tell an adult who looks after you at home or a teacher at school. If you would like to talk to someone else, we have added some links to the Advice Help and Report Centre.
