Heritage International School recognised for its commitment to helping pupils stay safe online

11 January 2023

Heritage International School has successfully completed a comprehensive online safety training programme demonstrating its commitment to keeping children and young people safe online. Heritage 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 UK Department of Education’s statutory requirements.

James Southworth, co-founder of National Online Safety: “Congratulations to everyone at Heritage International 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.”

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.

Rob Ford, Director at Heritage International School: “This is a very significant and proud moment for Heritage to be recognised internationally for its approach to online safety as we live in a sophisticated and complex digital age. Heritage is the 1st school in Moldova to achieve this accolade and we hope this is something that becomes prevalent in the wider national education community.”

 

Inga Chiosa, Academic Director at Heritage: “In an increasingly digital world online safety training is essential, empowering the school to protect and educate the students in the effective use of technology. Keeping children safe in education specifically comes to grips with online safety, the students will acquire skills and experience that will serve them throughout school and working life. Our students can successfully learn positive online behaviour when we provide the online safety training for the whole school community, including teachers, school staff and parents, empowering children, and the adults who work with them, with the knowledge to keep themselves and others safe online.”


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Certified Schools Membership responds to current UK Department of Education statutory policy around online safety, including the revised ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ guidance, which came into effect in September 2021. The benefits include award-winning online safety e-learning, resources and updates for the whole school community.

Tatiana Popa, Deputy Academic Director at Heritage International School: “In a world where everyone is connected to the internet and uses devices daily, it is extremely important that all children are informed about the risks and dangers posed by the virtual world and they are equipped with knowledge and skills to avoid them. Thus, they will know how to use the world wide web for the benefit of their learning and to navigate the 21st century successfully.”
