The Plymouth Safeguarding Children Partnership is today launching its FREE Plymouth Safer Schools APP.
INTRODUCTION TO YOUR APP
This app will support designated safeguarding leads and their staff with access to contemporary safeguarding information and a range of resources. Content addresses issues relating to safeguarding in the context of social media, including digital imagery, bullying, sexting and gaming. Amongst other information available, staff and teachers will have access to professional information, advice, CPD accredited courses on appropriate use of social media, safeguarding level 1 and managing child mental health in schools.
The Plymouth Safeguarding Children Partnership has been able to secure this opportunity to support its schools and educators during the COVID-19 period and the phased return of children into your school until the end of December 2020.
