MCPA has now achieved National Online Safety Safe Remote Education Accreditation
Manchester Communication Primary Academy has successfully completed a comprehensive remote education training programme demonstrating its commitment to providing high-quality remote education, keeping children and young people safe online and supporting pupil wellbeing.
The Academy has received a National Online Safety Safe Remote Education Accreditation for its successful approach towards safeguarding children and supporting pupil wellbeing during remote teaching and learning.
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 school staff, senior leaders, teachers and parents – on how to make the internet a safer place for children.
James Southworth, co-founder at National Online Safety, said: “Congratulations to everyone at MCPA on achieving their National Online Safety Safe Remote Education Accreditation. By completing our training programme, the school has shown its strong commitment to implementing the most effective approach to delivering remote education.”
“It can be increasingly difficult for schools to keep up with DfE expectations surrounding remote education to ensure both children and staff follow the necessary safeguarding protocols and know how to spot any potential wellbeing issues. We’ve armed schools with the knowledge they need to understand their responsibilities and how best to react to any problems.”
Alex Reed, Headteacher at MCPA said: “Safeguarding and e-safety are always at the top of our priorities at MCPA. Achievement of this accreditation serves to demonstrate the commitment that we have to keeping all of our community safe, especially in light of the challenges presented by remote learning and increased technology usage.”
