How do I turn on/off notifications from the Safer Schools NI App?

When you download the Safer Schools NI App from the Google Play Store or App Store, it will give you the option to receive push notifications.

Note: Push Notifications have the same effect as a text message. The difference is that Push Notifications are a form of one-way communication from you directly to your recipients phone/tablet. You can see previous Push Notifications in the 'Alerts' section of your Safer Schools NI App.
