Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Safeguarding

The Academy is committed to the vital contribution all Governors and staff can make to safeguarding children. We will strive to make sure that every student in the Academy feels secure, well cared for, and able to reach their full potential. The Academy has created a culture within which student voice is a high priority and values itself as a listening school.

We will ensure all our own staff, other professionals, parents/carers and students work together to know the rules about keeping children safe. They will understand the importance of following procedures and listening to each other, especially when there are concerns about safety.

We aim to ensure that all safeguarding and welfare concerns or referrals are handled sensitively, professionally and in ways that support the specific needs of the individual student.  Through providing a caring, safe and stimulating environment which promotes the social, physical and moral development of all our students, we aim to foster an atmosphere of trust, respect and security.

The Academy will work hard to reduce all the kinds of harm that children can suffer, including abuse, bullying, discrimination and avoidable injuries. If you have any concerns at all about the safety or welfare of a child please do not hesitate to contact us.

The Prevent Duty and "Channel"

The Academy has a Prevent Duty Lead. The Prevent duty has two specific strategic objectives to safeguard our students against radicalisation, extremism and any actions or beliefs that are contrary to British Values and our Academy ethos.

1.      Respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat we face from those who promote it.

2.      Prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure that they are given appropriate advice and support.

HGABD opposes all form of extremism. We define ‘extremism’ as vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.

The Academy will work closely with the counter-terrorism referral programme “Channel”.  Channel is a multi-agency approach to identify and provide support to individuals who are at risk of being drawn into terrorism.

The programme uses a multi-agency approach to protect vulnerable people by:

  • identifying individuals at risk
  • assessing the nature and extent of that risk                           
  • developing the most appropriate support plan for the individuals concerned.

The academy believes and actively supports the view that all students should be protected from radicalisation and extremism.

 Parent/Carer Information

The Educate Against Hate website has been created by the Department for Education and the Home Office to give parents, teachers and school leaders practical advice and support to help keep children safe from the dangers of extremism.

Exam Stress

Tests and exams can be a challenging part of school life for both student and parents. At HGBAR we will soon be teaching our students about Mindfulness. But in the meantime, there are ways to ease the stress. Guides to coping with exam stress can be found at the bottom of this page


 E-safety

The online world is becoming vaster with young people using social media sites and the internet, to explore opportunities for learning and creativity. However, while the internet is a great resource, as always, there are risks and dangers that every student should be aware of to help protect themselves and be safe online.  The Academy teaches e-safety via our PSHE curriculum, but you may also find the below resources useful.

You'll also find a wealth of additional information on the Think You Know website which was created by the police for parents of children at secondary school. It contains useful information about:

  • what children are doing online
  • how to talk to children about what they are doing online
  • what risks your child might face
  • what tools are there to help them stay safe.

Our E-Safety Policy can be accessed from the link at the bottom of this page.  Should you have any concerns about your child's e-safety, there is always someone at the Academy who is available to talk to you. Simply call the school and ask for our Safeguarding Officers, or speak to any member of staff.

Parent/Carer Information

Although the Academy teaches students e-safety as part of the PSHE curriculum, it is vital that parents are aware of the risks too, and what they can do to develop a culture of e-safety in the home.
