INEQE Safeguarding Group – Teach Hub / Home Learning Hub
As the largest independent safeguarding company in the UK and Ireland, INEQE Safeguarding Group have provided online safeguarding solutions to a wide spectrum of clients, not least to those at the front line of educating children and young people: parents, carers, teachers, and school staff.
The Teach and Home Learning Hubs are excellent safeguarding resources made by INEQE’s online safety experts.
Both Hubs are packed full of resources to support teachers, parents, and carers in helping young people stay safer online. They are part of the greater Safer Schools ecosystem and are free to access for everyone.
We believe keeping children and young people safe online requires a whole-school approach. Our Teach Hub is the virtual toolkit for teachers and school staff, providing them with the tools they need to build a school community with solid online safeguarding foundations.
To support the work of school staff and teachers, the Home Learning Hub is there for parents and carers to continue online safety lessons outside of the school gates. It contains adapted versions of the materials available to teachers and not only aims to educate pupils in safeguarding issues, but to support parents and carers too.
Internet Matters – Digital Matters
As an online safety organisation, we know how it important it is to help children develop media literacy and online safety skills, recognising the valuable role that educators play in supporting families to manage their wellbeing and safety online.
However, from speaking to teachers we heard that they needed more support to deliver this in the classroom and meet new curriculum criteria.
With the input of teachers, parents, and with support from our digital security partner ESET as part of their global CSR initiative ‘Safer Kids Online’, we launched Digital Matters – a free interactive learning platform that uses dynamic storytelling to help teachers in upper KS2 engage young people in online safety lessons.
Following UKCIS’ Education for a Connected World Framework, with modules quality assured by the PSHE Association, Digital Matters covers a range of online safety lesson topics ranging from cyberbullying to fake news to password security. Complete with lesson plans, companion guides, links to the curriculum and materials to send home, it has been designed to be inclusive in style and accessible in experience.
Teachers can use the lessons without limitation and focus on being able to support pupils in developing these increasingly important life skills.

The Natterhub team is committed to providing accessible, high quality free resources to engage children in the right conversations that nurture safe, savvy and kind digital citizens.
Oddizzi – 2041 School – Champions of Antarctica
Oddizzi, the online Primary Geography specialist, has launched a new venture: the Champions of Antarctica 2041 School Initiative. Through this Initiative, children explore one of the most extraordinary places on Earth – while participating in a global mission! In 2022, the Oddizzi team travelled to Antarctica with polar pioneer Robert Swan. In 2041 the Antarctic Treaty expires and the future of the continent will be decided. Oddizzi has developed a suite of free resources to introduce children to Antarctica and show them how they can protect it when the time comes. The resources are based on seven original films. Packed with expert-led, engaging content, they show children exactly how Antarctica looks, sounds and affects those who visit. Sequenced lessons accompany the films. Written by Geography specialists and mapped to the National Curriculum, they are full of imaginative activities, with a solid educational basis. The 2041 mission underpins the whole initiative. Oddizzi invites all schools to become 2041 Schools – and children to become ‘Champions of Antarctica’. Through these free resources, the aim is to awaken children’s wonder and creativity, and show them the practical steps they can take – to protect the last great wilderness on earth.

Technology is advancing at an extraordinary rate and its role in our lives continues to grow. To ensure all children are able to participate in the jobs of the future, it’s vital to educate and excite them about technology, and the people who develop it, from an early age. Tech We Can is a programme of free educational materials, created by the charity Tech She Can. They’re designed for use by teachers, parents and volunteers, with no specialist knowledge needed, to inspire children aged 5 – 14 about a future career in technology. All materials are available on techshecan.org with no registration or login required to access them. Rather than teaching digital skills, our resources are focused around children’s passions. We show students (and teachers) how their favourite subjects at school and their hobbies – whether that’s sport, food, art, films or toys – could lead them into a future career in technology. To bring this to life, we feature relatable, diverse role models within our materials, who talk about their roles and how their interests led them into a career in tech. The materials include animated lessons, on-demand video lessons, lesson packs and resources for volunteers.
White Rose Maths – 1-minute maths
1-minute maths helps children build greater number confidence and fluency. It’s all about targeted practice in engaging, one-minute chunks. The app is aimed at Key Stage 1 pupils. Individual one-minute tasks focus on adding and subtracting – and on ‘Subitising’, the skill of instantly recognising the number of items in a group without counting. Multiplication and division topics are also available. Children can choose any topic they want to try. They then answer a unique series of questions (so it’s a different set of questions every time). If they’re struggling with a question, a ‘Hint’ button will give a helpful clue by showing the question in a different but familiar way. When the one minute’s up, they’ll see a feedback screen telling them how they’ve done.
1-minute maths was first released in January and reached one million downloads within a week. To date, it has been downloaded 3 million times. The reviews from teachers, parents and pupils have been amazing to read. The app is really helping to make a different for pupils both in school and at home, building the confidence they need to become strong, resilient mathematicians!
