e-Safety for Students - A Young person's guide

If you’re aged between 11 and 18, you probably know a lot about using the internet.

We’ve created this space for you to share information on how you can make sure that you are safe when using the internet and social networking sites. We have provided links to really useful websites that can give you advice and guidance on how to protect yourself. The websites linked in this area will show you ways that you can get yourself out of bad situations online.

The websites linked here try to keep things easy, so you’ll see they’ve split the different things you might do online into different sections. You can also watch films, play games and you have the ability to report someone if you think they are being inappropriate with you online.

 Please don’t forget that the Reepham High School and College is always here to offer you support should you need it.

e-Safety for Parents - Advice and guidance for parents

The internet is such an integral part of children’s lives these days. It opens up so many educational and social opportunities, giving them access to, quite literally, a world of information and experiences.

Whether on a computer at school, a laptop at home, a games console or mobile phone, children and young people are increasingly accessing the internet whenever they can and wherever they are.

As you would protect your child in the real world, you will want to make sure that they are safe whatever they are doing. Like learning to cross the road, online safety skills are skills for life. If your child understands the risks and can make sensible and informed choices online, they can get the most from the internet and stay safe whilst doing so – particularly from those people who might seek them out to harm them.

 

 

So, how can you protect your child online?

In this section we will provide information and links to websites that will provide you with all you need to know about how to ensure your child is safe when going online.

 In Year 7 all students study E-Safety in their ICT lessons for 6 weeks in which they look at cyberbullying, online predators, inappropriate language and content as well as social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook amongst others. Students then produce a short animation to showcase what they have learnt. Throughout these lessons students look at and use the following websites;

Most of these websites have a Parent section in which they provide resources and ideas on how to approach the topics mentioned above with your child, and how you can best protect them yourself, including how to navigate parental controls. We try to emphasise to students that, in this digital world, a computer or laptop is not the only place that students are vulnerable, and they must be aware of how they conduct themselves on their phones, tablets and gaming console networks.

Norfolk County Council have produced a booklet 'Choices at 13/14' which is designed to help pupils with their Key Stage 4 subject choices, to better understand the importance of their GCSE subjects for future choices and to encourage them to start thinking about post-16 progression pathways, the need to develop employability skills and how the labour market is changing . 

 

'Choices at 13/14'  is divided into the following sections:-

  • What are my choices? - covering where to study, what to study, subjects and careers
  • Who can help me? - information on people, the internet and computer programs, support if you have additional learning needs and Help You Choose
  • Looking ahead - your choices after Year 11, qualifications and progression, skills for your future and the job market
  • What next? - a checklist for making your choices and do's and don'ts

A Level Results

Once again RHSC achieved the best A level results of all state schools in the county. 100% of all grades were at A*-E and 86% of all grades were at A*-C.

Since the opening of Reepham College in 2010 RHSC has become one of the nation's highest achieving (in terms of progress made by students) sixth forms in the nation. This September it has over 240 students from eight 11-16 schools.

 
 
GCSE Results
Our 2016 GCSE results were of the very highest order this summer. Under the new measure of Progress 8, (which measures the progress of all pupils in 8 GCSE subjects), we anticipate a score of +0.6. This means that our pupils achieved, on average, over half a grade higher in each of their GCSEs  than that of the national average pupil of similar ability. Progress 8 data will be released by the government in October so please keep your eyes on the local press.
