A new app which offers vital safeguarding information for teachers, school staff and other safeguarding professionals has been launched by Hackney Council. The Hackney Safer Schools App provides support on topics including online bullying, mental health, sexting, media literacy, gaming and sexual exploitation online. It costs nothing to download and provides access to advice, guidance and CPD accredited training, with a specific focus on making children and young people safer in the online world.
