In Toto Ed is now a National Online Safety Certified School

We’re thrilled to announce that In Toto Ed is now a National Safety Online Certified School, after successfully completed a comprehensive online safety training programme demonstrating our commitment to keeping children and young people safe online.

The alternative provision, encompassing all three school sites, 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 Department of Education’s statutory requirements. Its CPD accredited courses and educational resources support UK schools in educating the whole school community in online safety– including all senior leaders, teachers, school staff and parents – on how to make the internet a safer place for children.

“This is a really exciting new development for In Toto Ed and I am so pleased that we are able to open up many of the resources available on the National College to parents and carers,” says Emily Gunton, Director of Learning & Development. “Supporting young people to be safe online is a priority for us, and we are delighted we can support parents and carers with access to high-quality resources.”

James Southworth, co-founder of National Online Safety, said: “Congratulations to everyone at In Toto Ed 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.”

Of course, staff will continue to teach children about the risks online. But with the internet so readily accessible, the most effective approach to online safety needs everyone involved, including parents and carers. As part of our membership, The National College provides dedicated training and resources for parents and carers – particularly, around online safety and keeping children safe online. Topics range from understanding apps like TikTok and Instagram to recognising the signs of online harm and what you can do to help. If you are a parent or carer of a young person at In Toto Ed and you do not have a sign-up link, please contact your Head of School for details.

If you work for a school and would like to discuss their online safety provision, or would like access to up-to-date online safety learning resources, you are encouraged to contact National Online Safety on 0800 368 8061.
