Child Sexual Exploitation

Operation Encompass

Our school has joined up to a partnership scheme with the Metropolitan Police called Operation Encompass which allows the DSL to be notified when a child has been present at an incident of domestic abuse. This ensures that we can provide the best support and care for the pupils at Acton Gardens. Please see a link to the Operation Encompass website for more detailed information

Online Safety and Digital Parenting

Our pupils are growing up in a world of ever-changing technology. While we feel that the use of technology is a largely positive aspect of modern life, we cannot ignore the risks that can be associated

Throughout school we aim to teach children:

  • about the impact of cyberbullying and what to do if they have been affected
  • to be vigilant when communicating online recognise that people may not always be who they say they are and be sensible about what they share
  • to tell an adult they trust if something is upsetting them
  • to question the reliability of information given through a web-based source
  • to search responsibly for information while using internet browsers

We understand that much of our pupil’s use of the internet will occur at home, away from the school filters

Below is a list of useful websites, advice and resources that you may find helpful when navigating the issue of online safety with your child. At the bottom of this page are resources that your child can directly access as well to help them learn about online safety
