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

This page is designed to be a source of information about safeguarding for the community, parents and students alike - to help inform and educate everyone in our school community. 

On this page you'll find a list of our designated safeguarding officers as well as information about E-safety and our Safer Schools Partnership. Our Child Safeguarding Policy can be downloaded at the bottom on this page.


Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors and promoting a climate where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others.

The Academy is committed to the vital contribution of all governors, staff and support staff make to safeguarding children a priority. We aim to ensure that child protection concerns and referrals are handled sensitively, professionally and in ways that support the specific needs of the individual child.

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.


Safeguarding poster

The safeguarding poster pictured below is displayed in every classroom and key places around the Academy. This is to ensure that every stakeholder connected to the academy can approach key staff (and any member of staff) to share any safeguarding concerns. Our staff also have out of hours safeguarding cards on which are contact details of the senior safeguarding team and external agencies. This is for use if issues come to light outside of normal school hours.

Safeguarding team poster 17 18 final


Our vision

Our vision is very clear and has safeguarding at its CORE.

Everyone succeeds and achieves their potential regardless of any personal characteristics. Background does NOT determine outcomes.

We are all equal all of the time and treat people with the respect they deserve. We are not afraid to make mistakes as we see this as part of our learning journey.

We aim for our students to leave our academy with the ‘Master Key’ that will unlock any door for them in the future. This will allow them to become successful and caring citizens, whilst upholding the values that they have learnt through their educational journey with us.

 We are stronger as a team than a group of individuals and can change anything collectively that we put our mind to, whilst also being able to critically reflect on our actions

We aim to provide a rounded education that ensures our students grow holistically through developing resilience, tolerance and humanity.


The Academy philosophy, vision and expectation on safeguarding is very clear. Every person connected with the Academy has a personal responsibility for the highest standards of safeguarding of our students. It doesn’t matter how you are connected to the Academy, as part of our community we all have a responsibility for safeguarding our students. The following groups all have equal responsibility for ensuring the highest standards of safeguarding:

1.     All Academy staff

2.     All Academy students

3.     All Academy parents/carers

4.     All external agencies that engage with the academy and young people

5.     All members of our local community


Harris Boys’ Academy, East Dulwich and the Prevent Duty

The Academy has a designated, accredited 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.

HBAED 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.


Harris Boys’ Academy, East Dulwich and “Channel”

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.

Harris Boys’ Academy, East Dulwich Safeguarding Team 2016-2017

At Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich we have designated child protection/Prevent duty lead and safeguarding officers who you can contact if you have any questions or concerns relating to either child protection or safeguarding.

Visiting Speakers to the Academy

Harris Boys’ Academy, East Dulwich utilises the expertise of a wide range of guest speakers, lecturers, authors and visitors to enrich and augment the curriculum and learning opportunities of our students. 

However, the safeguarding of our students is at the forefront of everything we do.  To ensure that guests and visitors’ information is in line with our own values and ethos the Academy completes a rigorous process of checks.  By completing these checks, the Academy is confident that we are protecting our students from extremist views such as radicalisation and homophobia while enjoying the wide benefits of external speakers.

All visitors to the Academy are expected to follow the Visitors' Code of Conduct which can be accessed from the link at the bottom of this page


Radicalisation and Extremism

The academy believes and actively supports the view that all students should be protected from radicalisation and extremism. Read more about how we approach Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Education, including radicalisation and extremism. Download a parents' guide to extremism and radicalisation.


ParentInfo

ParentInfo is a regularly updated feed of expert information, advice and sources of support for parents on a whole range of parenting themes - the emphasis being on helping parents and carers develop their children's resilience to the risks and pressures they face in today's world. View the ParentInfo page.


E-safety

The online world is a wonderful place for young people to explore, with unprecedented opportunities for learning and creativity. But just like the real world there are risks and dangers they should be aware of, and which we can act to protect them from. Although the Academy teaches students e-safety as part of the 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.

This page has some helpful resources for parents that will enable you to help your child stay safe online. If 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 Officer, Richard Carey, or speak to any member of staff. Our e-safety policy can be found below.


Think You Know

The Think You Know website is 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.

Think You Know have also produced a Parents Guide to E-Safety and also the following booklets to provide parents/carers with helpful information on how to explore and monitor their children’s apps.


Sexting

The term ‘sexting’ describes the use of technology to share intimate images of yourself. It’s a word-mix of sex and texting. The content can vary, from text messages to images of partial nudity to sexual images or videos. For more information and guidance for parents and children visit the Childnet website. You might also like to watch this short film produced by the national crime agency CEOP.

What is a Money Mule?

More young people across the UK are being approached by criminals who want to use their bank accounts or pin numbers for criminal purposes. This is called being a ‘money mule’. A ‘mule account’ is used to hide money that comes from illegal activities. The young person may be asked to transfer money, allow access to their account or open up a new one. Sometimes criminals will try and force young people to become mules or they might offer financial incentives such as cash or mobile phone credit.

We need your support to help educate young people around this issue. Has your child been approached or asked for their bank account to be used? Check any bank statements. Is there money going in and out that cannot be accounted for? Ask questions if you are unsure about anything.

Bank accounts are private and must only be used by the account holder.  Any misuse could not only be criminal but could cause serious credit issues for the account holder. Police are working in partnership with many schools across London to combat this issue. If you have any concerns, speak to your Safer Schools Police Officer (see below) and/or Action Fraud (www.actionfraud.police.uk) on 0300 123 2040.


Drugs networks ('County lines')

The National Crime Agency, the UK body charged with fighting organised crime, is very concerned that crime gangs are taking over drug networks using telephone hotlines (called 'county lines) and recruiting vulnerable people, often children, to act as couriers and to sell drugs. Please see our information sheet about 'county lines' and 'cuckooing' - the practice whereby professional drug dealers take over the property of a vulnerable person and use it as a place from which to run their drugs business.


Safer Schools Partnership

PC Marcus Kudliskis is our Safer Schools Police Officer. There are now over 450 Safer School Partnerships operating throught England and Wales, with police officers and community support officers based in schools to work closely with staff and students.

PC Marcus Kudliskis has been working with us for several years and is a familiar, trusted face around the school - working closely with students on issues that affect their lives both inside and outside of the academy.

PC Kudliskis can be contacted by email at m.kudliskis@harris-net.org.uk or you can telephone him on 07917 210932 (07:00 - 17:00 Monday to Friday but please note this number does not receive text messages). Alternatively you can telephone the Academy on 020 8299 5300.
