Y6 / Y7 Transition
Students are taught how to report unpleasant Internet content e.g. using the CEOP Report Abuse icon through the curriculum time.
 
The following link www.ceop.police.uk will take you through to a website entitled ‘Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre’ (CEOP) which is monitored and run by a branch of the UK police and is dedicated to protecting children from sexual abuse wherever they may be.
The CEOP centre is a member of the Virtual Global Taskforce and is also affiliated to the Serious Organised Crime Agency.
The website will give you a number of ways to receive help and advice, as well as the option to report any instances of sexual contact or harmful material to the Child Exploitation & Protection Centre.
Please note that this facility is NOT monitored or run by the Open Academy.

Advice to Parents/Carers,
 
We have received information from the Police and senior public health officials who have warned us of the dangers students may face by taking part in the latest social media craze #neknominate.
 
The drinking game – which is trending on Facebook and Twitter – encourages participants to film themselves in bizarre situations downing an alcoholic drink before nominating friends to do the same.
 
Police are particularly conscious that young people could be more impressionable and likely to succumb to peer pressure around this trend and are asking for parents and carers to make sure their children are aware of the risks.
 
Director of Public Health, Lucy Macleod, said: “Neknominate is a highly dangerous craze, which has already led to serious illness, hospitalisation, and even death, in some parts of the country.  It increases your risk of heart attack, and can cause you to choke on your own vomit and suffocate, or slip into a life-threatening coma.”
 
We work very closely with the Police as part of our Safer Schools Partnership and we welcome your support to break this trend that is placing many students at risk.
 
Regards
 
Mrs B Fowler
Designated Safeguarding Lead
