This year we are introducing the Safer Schools NI App, provided by the Department of Education and INEQE Safeguarding Group. 92% of children in Northern Ireland use video sharing platforms, with 53% using social media and 65% accessing messaging apps. If your child hasn’t already been using these platforms, they soon will be! Therefore, it's more important than ever to ensure your child is aware of how to keep safe online.

The app provides you with easy-to-follow steps on how to make your home and devices safer in the ‘Need-to-Know' section while keeping you up to date with the current online trends, threats, and risks to your child. This information is sent directly to your device! The app will deliver the information you need to know on social media and gaming platforms, helping you understand the latest buzzwords and how to set privacy and parental settings on platforms like Among Us, Minecraft and TikTok. It also offers expert guidance to help you navigate important issues such as bullying, mental health and healthy relationships. This provides practical tips on how to approach these conversations with your children and is a platform to access latest school news, updated policies and calendar all within your App.
