Higher Openshaw becomes NOS Certified School
Higher Openshaw Community School, a community primary school based in Manchester with 385 students and 41 school staff, has become one of the first schools in the region to achieve National Online Safety certification. The school is currently rated as “Good” by Ofsted, but with the education standards organisation recently stating that they are placing significant emphasis on school’s online safety provisions in their inspections, this achievement could go some way towards helping them achieve “Outstanding” status.
James Southworth, co-founder at National Online Safety, said: “Congratulations to everyone at Higher Openshaw Community School on becoming a National Online Safety Certified School. The school has undergone a thorough assessment of its online safety activities, implemented recommended actions and taken in-depth training on how to protect and educate the whole school in its use of technology.”
“There is often uncertainty around what actions a school needs to take to be Ofsted-compliant in online safety. Our NOS Certified School package combines online safety audit and training with consultancy support and is the most comprehensive online safety offering for schools looking to train their staff and prepare their school for an Ofsted inspection.”
