Rebecca Goddard, deputy headteacher at the Church Green school, said: “Online safety in schools is of paramount importance.

“As the online world evolves, so do both the online risks facing our children.

“This is a real step forward for our school in this area and we have achieved this recognition as a result of our students, parents and staff all working together.”

James Southworth, co-founder of National Online Safety, said: “It’s exciting that we are able to award The Henry Box School with an online safety certification for the second year running.

“This demonstrates a unique kind of commitment to online safety, and one that we hope more schools will adapt to in the near future.

“The online world is always changing, and risks are ever evolving, so keeping up to date with training each year is the best way for schools to ensure that the whole school community is protected from online risks.”
