National Online Safety Mobile App
Children are spending more time than ever online. As adults, we need to do everything
we can to keep them safe in the digital world. But with new apps, games and platforms emerging every day, how can you stay in the know?
St Gregory's Catholic Primary School is a member of National Online Safety and they have created a new mobile app to download for free.
With all online safety knowledge available at your fingertips, the NOS app empowers parents and teachers to understand and address online safeguarding risks – any time, anywhere. The world’s most comprehensive online safety app, it’s packed with insightful courses, explainer videos, webinars and guides on topics that will help you protect the kids you care about when they’re online.

Safeguarding is our priority at St Gregory's Catholic Primary School. All school staff have Level 1 training annually, along with termly refresher training. In addition, we have a team of staff who are trained to Level 3 in Safeguarding.
Please also see our advice, policy and guidance on on-line safety, in the 'e-safety' section under the 'Children' tab.
