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.

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.

In these unprecedented times, we know everyone is spending more time at home and using social media to ensure that physical distancing does not become social isolation. The positive power of technology will help keep our community digitally connected but we also know that more time spent online and in isolation 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.

Downloading the app

  • Decide which version to download. If you have both primary and secondary school age children, we’d suggest you download the secondary school version.
