Safer Schools app

19th May 2020

Following the recent launch by the Department of Education of an app on the Safer Schools platform, provided by iNEQE Safeguarding Group on a trial basis during this COVID-19 crisis, the minister has now also launched the children & young people’s version of this app.

The app (Safer Schools) , can be downloaded on either the App Store or Google Play, and can be accessed by children & young people at both primary and post primary level – please note the post primary app has been split into 3 versions depending on the age of the young person to ensure the content is relevant to them. Much valuable support is provided in the app regarding online safety issues, content suitable for children, access, etc., particularly during this difficult Covid-19 period.

Please find attached instructions for accessing the app.
