The Hackney Safer Schools App


The Hackney Safer Schools App - Parents / Carers

The power of technology is of benefit to us all, but more time spent online by our children can lead to greater levels of risk. As parents and carers, it is important that you know how you can help make your children safer.

The Hackney Safer Schools App is free and includes useful advice about making your home and devices safer. It provides information about social media and how to block, mute and report anything that either you (or your child) may find worrying - from images to comments from online bullies. The App will also help you create healthy media habits, limit screen time, learn about scams and keep your personal data safe. It will complement the information your child’s school will have made available via their communications with you and your child.
