CEOP (Child Exploitation & Online Protection)

The CEOP (Child Exploitation & Online Protection) reporting link is easily accessible to all pupils, staff, parents and carers in order that they can easily and quickly report an online incident to the National Crime Agency, which may occur in relation to themselves or someone they know.

This link below will take users directly to the reporting page that also offers advice to parents/carers/professionals/ and children of all ages as well as young adults on how to keep safe from child sexual exploitation.

In addition contact details for Childline are on this page for children and young people who are not necessarily ready to report abuse, but can anonymously contact Childline for support.

In this climate of potentially harmful online behaviours, we must offer our children and young people, staff, parents and carers as much guidance and support in the prevention and reporting of potential harmful incidents.

MODERN LANGUAGES NEWS!

N5 French pupils will be participating in a project called Language Linking, Global Thinking and on Monday 5th June the class gave their partner student Oisin Pircher a very warm welcome. Oisin is currently studying International Business and Modern Languages at Strathclyde University . He will be spending his 3rd year at university in Grenoble. After telling the class a bit about himself the pupils got the chance to ask him questions and generally get to know him . Oisin will regularly communicate with the class during the course of the year to illustrate how enriching it is to spend a year abroad using a language other than English. It is hoped that the two-way correspondence between student and class will bring French culture and language alive for our pupils and show them the real relevance of learning a language.

For more information: http://www.scilt.org.uk/BeyondSchool/LanguageLinkingGlobalThinking/tabid/5388/Default.aspx

Well done to S3 pupils Callan Duncan, Lauren Thorburn, Paige Nelson and Laura Johnstone who assisted Mrs Smith in a transition lesson at Bellfield Primary . They gave a presentation to pupils about how much they enjoy French and also answered some questions from the Primary 7 pupils. Mrs Smith taught the class school subjects in French and our S3 pupils gave out stickers and prizes, helped with fun French games , interacted with pupils and led some of the learning. They worked well together as a team. Bravo!
