Safeguarding

Online Safety

  • At Angel Oak Academy we embrace the use of new technologies.  We promote the use of ICT to enhance learning and thinking and teach all of the children how to keep themselves safe.  All adults in school ensure that pupils know how to report incidents and problems confidently and straight away.At home, many children use computers to play games and learn.  We want to encourage you to ensure children are supervised at all times at home, especially when accessing the internet.IT IS OF PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE THAT CHILDREN DO NOT SIGN-UP TO SOCIAL MEDIA OR OTHER SITES SITES FOR WHICH THEY ARE UNDERAGE. Whatsapp, Facebook, BBm etc. are not for children of Primary School age. To find out more about age-limits, please check https://www.net-aware.org.uk/
    • When your child is using the internet at school or at home it is very important that they stay safe. We teach children to FLAG IT, BLOCK IT & REPORT IT if they see anything on the internet they are concerned about.
    • Pupils are taught at school how to stay safe when using the internet on the computer, an Ipad or a mobile phone. It is also a good idea to talk about these safety issues at home with your child.
    • If you are worried about anything your child has seen on the internet you should report it to the police.
    • Remember, when using any computer, tablet or phone devices, children need to be SMART:

S- SAFE- Don’t give out your own information

M- MEET- Only meet people you have met online with your parents

A- ACCEPTING- Only open emails & texts from people you trust

R- RELIABLE- Some people online tell lies, only talk to real world friends and family

T- TELL- Tell a parent or adult you trust if something you see online makes you feel uncomfortable

ONLINE SAFETY CONCERNS

Southwark Police have contacted all Schools on the borough to make them aware of two current areas of concern regarding online safety and we would like to make you equally aware so that you can review your children’s online use, security settings and have an open discussion with your children around online use and any concerns they have. Please see ONLINE SAFETY CONCERNS

PREVENT Strategy

As part of Angel Oak Academy’s commitment to safeguarding and child protection we fully support the government’s Prevent StrategyAs part of our annual Safeguarding training, we ensure that members of our team are aware of governmental priorities.

What is the Prevent Strategy?

The Prevent strategy is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. As described in official documents published by Her Majesty’s Government, the Prevent Strategy:

  • responds to the ideological challenge we face from terrorism and aspects of extremism, and the threat we face from those who promote these views
  • provides practical help to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support
  • works with a wide range of sectors (including education, criminal justice, faith, charities, online and health)

If you are concerned that a member of staff, a Governor or potential Governor may have links to extremism or that child might be at risk of extremism, or if you have any other concern about extremism at Applegarth Academy, please contact the Department for Education’s helpline on counter.extremism@education.gsi.gov.uk or 020 7340 7264. Parents/carers can also find some more information on the Educate Against Hate website by the DfE
