Q3 Academy Great Barr has been recognised for its commitment to helping students stay safe online. We are now National Online Safety certified!
The Academy has successfully completed a comprehensive online safety training programme demonstrating our commitment to keeping children and young people safe online, and we have received a National Online Safety accreditation for our Academy-wide community approach to protecting children in the online world.
James Southworth, co-founder at National Online Safety, said: “Congratulations to everyone at Q3 Academy Great Barr on becoming National Online Safety certified. By completing our training programme, the Academy has shown its strong commitment to implementing an effective Academy-wide approach to online safety.”
“It can be increasingly difficult for the Academy and parents/carers to stay ahead of online threats and ensure both children and staff are safeguarded from potentially harmful and inappropriate online material. We arm everyone with the knowledge they need to understand online dangers and how best to react to any problems.”
We are really proud of this huge achievement and have worked hard to develop this area, particularly with staff and students working remotely. We will continue to deliver eSafety guidance to our students, training to support our staff, and access to a range of courses, resources, and webinars for parents/carers.
All parents/carers have been sent a link by email providing access to a platform on everything eSafety – we’ve had some great feedback so far, and lots of parents/carers have completed courses and made the most of the webinars and resources available.
