Another week of ‘firsts’: our first ever National offer Day, first official newsletter to our prospective parents and another site visit, which although not a ‘first’ was certainly the first time we saw skilled professionals on stilts. So impressive! https://t.co/mtACQsPMgs

First official site visit today! This is when you realise that a staircase not only leads to a phenomenal view. It is also truly symbolic of a vision coming together. https://t.co/kOV9jmN28z

Staying safe

There are many things you can do to keep yourself safe. The first is always, always talk to someone if you have any concerns or worries. At the academy all our staff are friendly and approachable – try talking to them and you will soon find this out!

Staying Safe Online
Keeping yourself safe online is a must. You will learn more about this during lessons, but we’ve also put together some resources for you to find out more.

Remember, if you need immediate help call 999

Your Digital Footprint
Everything you post online stays around for a long, long, long, long, long, long time. Before you post anything online THINK – Is it True? Is it Helpful? Is it Inspiring? Is it Necessary? Is it Kind?

If you post something unkind or cruel then will make someone else feel unsafe. Do not make posts or comments about other people on any social media.

Staying Safe:

On your journey to and from school

  • Make sure you know your address and home telephone number by heart, in case you get lost or have to navigate home from somewhere new.
  • If you have a mobile phone, fully charge it before leaving the house, and make sure you have all your contact numbers saved.
  • Follow the rules on road safety. Always look both ways before crossing the street, and never be on their phone while crossing a road.
  • Never accept a lift from someone you don’t know or let a stranger into the house. Never give personal information away – in real life or online.
  • If you feel unsafe or uncomfortable at any time, they call your mum or dad or a trusted adult
  • If you ever feel like they’re in immediate danger, they should call the police straight away on 999.

If you are getting the bus then know the times the bus is due and don’t be too early so you are not hanging around the bus stop. On the bus, keep yourself out of danger – remember everything you were taught about keeping yourself safe at primary school. In short, trust your instincts. Avoid getting into arguments with adults you do not know, for example over a spare seat on the bus.

If you are cycling, know your route, wear a helmet and practise the journey! Remember to cycle safely – do not swerve across roads!

If you need help, including with your emotional and mental wellbeing, then these organisations can help you. Never be afraid to seek help if you are feeling down, stressed or things are getting on top of you.
