We have a number of apps available for you.
The Bromley Safer Schools App is now available free to all parents, grandparents and carers of children and young people who live in Bromley or attend school in Bromley, in addition to all professionals who work with children in Bromley.
The app is already used by over 5000 schools across the UK. It will cost you nothing to download to provide access to advice and guidance on making children and young people safer in the online world.
We know our children and young people are spending more time at home and using social media. The positive power of technology will help keep our community digitally connected but we also know that more time spent online by our children can lead to greater levels of risk.
The significance of this risk should not be underestimated and parents and carers need up-to-date, reliable information in order to protect their children. This app provides it.
