E-Safety

The internet is a fantastic place to learn, have fun and talk to friends and family. However, there are risks and everyone must make sure they know how to stay safe and protect themselves online. Here at Liskeard School, we provide students from Year 7 - 11 with a comprehensive E-Safety programme in tutorial time focusing on issues such as:

  • The advantages and disadvantages of living in a digital world
  • The dangers of sharing personal information online and how to stay safe
  • Appropriate use of social media (Facebook; SnapChat etc)
  • Cyber bullying – how to recognise it and reporting mechanisms
  • Sexting – the consequences

 

E-Safety Update - March 2016

In addition to this, the school takes part in the annual national event ‘Safer Internet Day’ which is taking place this academic year on Tuesday 7th February 2017. All students in Year 7 also complete a unit of work on E-Safety in ICT lessons resulting in the production of an advice leaflet for peers focusing on ‘Keep Safe online.’ Other subjects also make a contribution to the E-Safety programme; for example, Year 10 Photography students study image manipulation on the internet and how businesses use this to their advantage. There are regular assemblies throughout the year on topical E-Safety issues such as this one on safeguarding your digital footprint.

During tutorials, students are signposted to various respected organisations which provide comprehensive guidance and support, such as:

We also recognise that, in an ever changing digital world, parents need a helping hand in order to keep up! As a result, each year we offer an informal workshop and hands-on training session for all parents and members of the local community involved in working with children.

We also recommend a range of excellent help guides for parents produced by OFCOM.  See below for their links.

 

It is also useful to read the Department for Education's advice on Cyberbullying for Parents and Carers.

If you have any questions or concerns about E-Safety matters, please do not hesitate to contact the school’s designated E-Safety Officer, Wendy Birkbeck, Assistant Headteacher (wbirkbeck@liskeard.cornwall.sch.uk) or telephone 01579 342344.

Academies-Logo

Our Academies exist to give our students greater opportunities to learn and explore in fields in which they have talents or interests. They work in a myriad of ways, comprising of clubs, events and trips which involve experiences in and outside the classroom, in school time and outside of normal school hours.

We currently run four Academies but these all consist of a variety of subject areas and cater for a broad variety of tastes and skills. Some of these opportunities will only be available for invited students who have demonstrated a particular aptitude or passion but many are available to all. We encourage all of our students to get involved and to make the most of these chances to gain new and exciting experiences.

The Academies are constantly reinventing themselves and increasing the number of events and opportunities that they provide but a summary is contained below. Click on the logos below for more details:

We are pleased to share with you our last OFSTED report (March 2013) which recognised the fantastic improvements seen over recent years. OFSTED-Good
 
The key findings of the inspection team are summarised below:
  • The school provides high quality teaching
  • There are strong student relationships and students behave well
  • Leadership at all levels is extremely good
  • We have excellent relationships with the local community and businesses
  • Our 6th form exam results are above the national average
  • Our GCSE results are improving each year
  • We provide a broad and varied curriculum and an extensive range of extra-curricular activities
 
The school was not judged outstanding as at the time we needed to strengthen the leadership of the maths department which we have now done. In July 2013 we appointed Mrs Hubartt, one of our best teachers and an experienced middle leader to the post. The maths team this year celebrated a phenomenal 58% A*/A at A Level and have been ranked as one of the top providers in the country (ALPS, grade 1).
 
The inspectors also believed we needed to further increase the proportion of outstanding teaching. By our reckoning this has increased over the last year however we are still ambitious to ensure all teaching is of the highest calibre every lesson.
