You can read about some of our events relating to e-safety, extremism and other safeguarding issues in the latest news section of our website.


E-safety

Although the Academy teaches students e-safety as part of the curriculum, it is vital that parents are aware of the risks too, and what they can do to develop a culture of e-safety in the home.

This page has some helpful resources for parents that will enable you to help your child stay safe online.

If you have any concerns about your child's e-safety there is always someone at the Academy who is available to talk to you. Simply call the school and ask for our Safeguarding Officer, Chris Lamb, or Police Officer PC Marcus Kudliskis, or speak to any member of staff.

The online world is a wonderful place for young people to explore, with unprecedented opportunities for learning and creativity. But just like the real world there are risks and dangers they should be aware of, and which we can act to protect them from.

As an Academy we teach students how to stay safe online. But it is also vital that parents are aware of the risks and what they can do to develop a culture of e-safety in the home. However, it can be hard to have the confidence and knowledge to know how best to support your child. That's where the resources on this page can help.

As a starting point, why not watch the video at the bottom of this page? Remember, if you have any concerns about your child's e-safety you can contact the Academy at any time.


Indecent images of children: guidance for young people

The Home Office has published guidance to help young people understand the law on making or sharing indecent images of children. The guidance includes: definitions of some of the terms used in legislation; examples of situations covered by the law; three short films highlighting the harm that viewing indecent images of children can cause. Read the guidance.


Think You Know website

The Think You Know website is created by the police for parents of children at secondary school. It contains useful information about:

  • what children are doing online
  • how to talk to children about what they are doing online
  • what risks your child might face
  • and what tools are there to help them stay safe.

Factsheets

Extremism and radicalisation workshops

We organise workshops for students in years 9, 10 and the Sixth From to explore openly a range of issues associated with fundamentalism in religion, immigration and the environment, and the radicalisation of individuals. Students learn about their rights and also their responsibilities in relation to fundamentalism and radicalisation, as members of a pluralist society.

The discussions touch on the sensitives of the philosophies of various fundamentalist groups and give young people the chance to engage in frank discussions whilst acknowledging the sensitives of all those involved. They provide students with an opportunity to examine topics that may have been more typically ‘ignored’ because of the sensitive nature of the content.

Social commentators argue that we live in a postmodern world in which the certainties of the past are eroding and being replaced by ambiguity. This seismic shift into the ‘unknown’ has left some individuals and, indeed, social groups with a sense of ‘loss’. In an attempt to assert order into what appears to them as chaos, fundamentalist movements have emerged to ‘protect’ humanity from this perceived loss, and what seems like irreversible change.

The workshops look at why in a free, democratic country we need to ensure freedom of speech and freedom of expression, but also ensure that such freedom is not compromised through violent acts perpetuated by fundamentalist groups that serve to promote only a narrow view, to the detriment of others.

Following the most recent workshops, 100% of students said they would know what to do if they were suspicious of a person who could be involved in extremism and radicalisation, with most saying they would inform the police, a teacher or an adult immediately. Download our assembly presentation Resilience against extremism.

The Educate Against Hate website has been created by the Department for Education and the Home Office to give parents, teachers and school leaders practical advice and support to help keep children safe from the dangers of extremism.
