∼ Highland Council

I would absolutely recommend Safer Schools, and not only would I, we already do in the highlands. When I do my online safety training to parents and to schools I actually include 3 or 4 slides which talk directly about safer schools and the benefits to the highland schools

Apps like Safer Schools has really helped because it gives a one stop shop that they can go to get all the information that they need around a variety of subjects by keeping themselves safe online.

From a Staff point of view, the ecosystem allows them to be up skilled and to become more confident to deal with issues that arise through online activity, and it also helps with their professional learning as well
