Year 7 Homework - Castle Challenge

12/01/17

Our year 7 students  undertook their history homework challenge with enthusiasm this term. The challenge required students to design and create their own medieval castle. The standard of the castles we received was exceptional and most students went above and beyond the requirements of the task. We had a range of styles, layouts and materials and our department is now beautifully decorated with their hard work.  Well done year 7.

Safeguarding at the North School

 

The needs and safety of young people always comes first.  The North School is committed to safeguarding our students, staff and visitors.  WE expect all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.

The Safeguarding Agenda incorporates child protection and concentrates on the well-being of the young person.

We aim to ensure that we detect any sign that could indicate ayoung person is no thriving or is failing to meet his/her potential.  ANy concern will be acted upon.

At The North School we conduct regular risk assessments to ensure the school site is safe and secure.  Any concerns should be reported to the Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs C. Clipstone at the school on 01222 614600 or via email at clipstone.c@north.kent.sch.uk.

We see safeguarding as keeping the community safe from harm, abuse or injury.  We take our duty of care very seriously and will consistently follow up any concern.

 

STUDENT WELFARE STRUCTURE

All Staff  :  At The North School all staff are concerned with student well-being.  To ensure that the school deals effectively with welfare, guidance and discipline, a formal pastoral structure is in place.

Form Tutors  :  The form tutor is responsible for the day to day welfare, guidance and discipline of students.  The form tutor should be the first person a student will turn to for help or advice.  Form tutors will monitor and support student welfare by promoting and celebrating posotive behaviour, achievement and attendance.  Where appropriate, form tutors refer concerns to the Student Support Team.

Student Support Team  :  The role of the form tutor is supported, in the first instance, by the appropriate Pastoral Support Manager.

  CEOP - What We Do 

The NCA's CEOP Command (formerly the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) works with child protection partners across the UK and overseas to identify the main threats to children and coordinates activity against these threats to bring offenders to account. We protect children from harm online and offline, directly through NCA led operations and in partnership with local and international agencies.

We pursue those who sexually exploit and abuse children, prevent people becoming involved in child sexual exploitation, protect children from becoming victims of sexual exploitation and sexual abuse, and prepare interventions to reduce the impact of child sexual exploitation and abuse through safeguarding and child protection work.  

Our activity in each of these areas is underpinned by specialist teams in the CEOP command, and across the whole agency.

We work to track registered offenders who have a sexual interest in children and who have failed to comply with their notification requirements under the Sexual Offences Act 2003. This includes disrupting or preventing travel by offenders and disseminating intelligence to international forces and specifically targeting offenders while they remain overseas. It includes non UK nationals who travel to the UK.

We also focus on organised criminal groups profiteering from the publication or distribution of child abuse images, support local police forces with computer forensics and covert investigations and provide authoritative investigative advice and support to maximise UK law enforcement's response to crimes of child sexual abuse and exploitation.

We liaise with the online and technological industries, fine-tuning guidelines to minimise the possibility of present and future technology increasing the risk of sexual exploitation and sexual abuse to children. Our training and education specialists work together to raise the knowledge, skills and understanding of parents, carers, children and young people.

The CEOP command receives invaluable assistance from its partners and supporters in the UK and internationally, allowing us to do even more groundbreaking child protection work.
