School Certified Status
All staff at Aldington are 100% committed to keeping your child safe online. As part of that commitment we are always ensuring our knowledge of the risks your child faces online is as up-to-date as possible. When remote learning first began in the first lockdown of March 2020, Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Senior Leaders, Governors and Parent Volunteers all took part in comprehensive training provided by National Online Safety (NOS) to offer the safest possible remote provision. These efforts saw Aldington awarded School Certified Status by NOS in 2019-20.
Safe Remote Education Accreditation
In January 2021, the DfE published their 'Review your remote education provision' guidance to support schools to identify the strengths and areas for improvement in their remote education provision, and to signpost them to resources that can help them improve their practice. Our 'Safe Remote Education' accreditation has been directly aligned to the DfE guidance and to the approaches outlined under the 'safeguarding and wellbeing' section of the framework. This comprehensive training was undertaken by Mr Clarke in his role as Computing Lead to then enable him to advise SLT on keeping Aldington's children safe online during lockdown and provide internal training to the wider school staff.
