The Education Minister launched the new Safer Schools NI App across Northern Ireland in November 2021.
Already, over 55% of schools in Northern Ireland have downloaded the App and this figure is increasing.
The Safer Schools NI app is a one-stop-shop digital library of age-appropriate safeguarding resources for teachers, parents/carers and children & young people.
In today’s society, children and young people are spending more time using digital devices. As the lines between their lives offline and online become more blurred, it is important for all of us in education to make online safeguarding a priority.
With that in mind, we would encourage all schools to access the Schools Registration link and download the link to the Apple and Google Play stores now. These can be accessed here.
For more information on the app please see the video from the Education Minister Michelle McIlveen: - Safer Schools NI
Thanks to everyone who has already downloaded the app. If you have any queries or comments, please email PSU.Mail@education-ni.gov.uk
