Hot off our digital presses, our weekly articles, videos and resources are curated by our in-house experts and will keep you up-to-date with the latest developments, risks and practical, credible advice in digital safeguarding.

Safeguarding Prompts, Alerts and Warnings:

At Safer Schools we monitor and respond to real time current trends, issues and emerging safeguarding risks to young people online. We use our PAW (Prompts, Alerts and Warnings) system to responds to concerns, threats and dangers (e.g., the latest online challenges) by pushing notifications directly to users whenever appropriate.

We ensure school communities have access to reliable, age-appropriate information on risks , partnered with practical advice on how to respond effectively. Our RAG (Red, Amber, Green) system is designed to help you understand the level of the importance attached to every message.


Green Prompts relate to awareness raising initiatives, events or general information sharing notifications.


Amber Alerts relate to important information on specific contemporary issues that users face and are constructed in a manner consistent with needs of individual groups. Bespoke alerts can be sent to different audiences including school staff, teachers, parents and, when appropriate, pupils.


Red Warnings are used to inform safeguarding professionals, teachers and parents and carers of high-risk incidents, apps and platforms or worrying online trends that may require an immediate, balanced and informed response.
