Broadland High School prides itself on being a caring environment. Students are welcomed and made to feel safe. All students are viewed as individuals and a culture of vigilance allows us to protect the well-being of all members of the community. The students at Broadland High School look after one another and know who to talk to if concerned.
Staff are trained to think,‘it could happen here’ and staff report all concerns, no matter how small. Guidance and education on how students can keep themselves safe is provided through Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) and the Spiritual Moral Social and Cultural agenda delivered through the wider curriculum, the form period and weekly assemblies.
Students are given guidance and support on how to stay safe using technologies in their Computing lessons. This includes being made aware of what cyberbullying is, where to go for support, and how to manage their online reputation. Students are also taught about the dangers and risks of using technologies, and how to make sure their privacy settings are enabled.
For Parents, a social media safeguarding booklet has been made by the police, to keep you informed on the latest online developments. A copy can be downloaded here. A guide on Sexting has also been created, which can be downloaded here. There is also a guide for any parents worried about gangs here.
We also have a PCSO who regularly visits the school:
Hello, I’m PCSO 8473 Alex OLDMAN, the new Safer School Partnership Officer for Broadland High School. I will be in the school on Thursdays, but am contactable to the school all week. My role involves safeguarding young people in the school, but I can also work in partnership with the school when dealing with behavioural and attendance issues. I also intend to run presentations/classes on various subjects such as ‘CEOP’ (Child Exploitation and Online Protection), Sexting, CSE (Child Sexual Exploitation), Healthy Relationships, Abuse in Teen Relationships, Knife Crime, and Anti-Social Behaviour.’ I look forward to working with the staff, children and parents, and am here to help with any enquiries or issues you may have.
