e-Safety is an essential part of safeguarding. We provide e-Safety training for all students with support to manage the risks, how to take action and report any issues of concern. This is completed as part of yeargroup assemblies, work in PSHE lessons, Computing lessons, collapsed days and form time discussions.
Whilst we appreciate these are difficult and challenging issues we strongly believe education and discussion are the most valuable tools to support our students both now and in their future increasingly digital lives. At the Academy we provide rigorous support and safeguarding measures for all our students. We fully believe the crucial partnership between students, parents and staff enable us to achieve this.
The NCA’s CEOP Command is here to help children and young people. We are here to help if you are a young person and you or your friend (up to age 18) has been forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity with anyone online, or in the real world. We also have advice and links to support for other online problems young people might face, such as cyberbullying and hacking. Visit our Safety Centre for advice and to report directly to CEOP, by clicking on the Click CEOP button.
This academic year we are enhancing this work further with opportunities for Parents to meet, review our training materials and discuss any related issues. Our first meeting is on Monday 6th October.
