We have joined the Safer Schools Community as part of our drive to educate students to better protect themselves in the Digital World. You can now download the Safer Schools app for parents onto your smartphone or tablet and link it to Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy, where you can receive tips and advice on keeping your child safer online.
We strongly recommend that you download the app and join our Safer Schools Community so that we can alert you to any new trends or sites that may be of concern or potentially dangerous to children.
Throughout the next couple of weeks, we will be introducing the Safer Schools app to students. We will be asking them to download the app onto their smartphones during an assembly. We will ask the students to only use their phones during this time under a controlled environment and ask them to turn off their phones and put them away once the app has been downloaded and registered.
We will also be releasing social media content about the app and its features over the coming week to show examples of what it offers. If you do not already follow our social media, you can find us on:
If you would rather your child not download the app, please email us at [email protected] to let us know the reason for not wanting to be a part of the Safer Schools Community. You can also contact us with any questions you may have.
We have included the instructions on downloading the parent app below. You can find the QR code and the four-digit entry code on the display of the smartphone image on the first page of the guidance.
