The BIG Anti Bullying Award

Dame Elizabeth Cadbury School has achieved the BIG Award for Excellence in Challenging Bullying for the second time.  This award is achieved by meeting all of our stringent criteria and demonstrating that the school has a wide range of anti-bullying strategies in place, including an excellent anti-bullying policy, a peer support scheme and staff training. 

This is the best way to reduce bullying, and ensure that students can learn and socialise in a happy and caring environment. 

Well done to all staff and students.

TikTok Updated Parental Controls

ONLINE SAFETY UPDATE – TikTok Update Parental Controls with Family Pairing Feature 

TikTok is used by many teenagers and sometimes children younger than that 13 despite its terms and conditions. Using the new Family Pairing feature can allow parents to guide their child’s TikTok experience in a safer way. Features include:

  • Search: Decide what can be searched for. This includes content, users, hashtags, or sounds
  • Screen Time Management: Sets how long your teen can spend on TikTok each day
  • Discoverability: Decide on the account being private (you decide who can see their content) or public (anyone can search and view content)

To find out more information about TikTok’s Family Pairing feature and to download a helpful poster to share with pupils and parents, go to: https://swgfl.org.uk/magazine/tiktok-update-parental-controls-with-family-pairing-feature/

Anti-bullying Week 2020

Online Security – Christmas

Online Security Black Friday Sales!

This is a reminder that the ‘Black Friday’ periods sees the highest number of emails flying across the online world than at any other time of year. The means that not only are there millions of legitimate emails, but online scammers also send out lots too.

We are all vulnerable, but children, perhaps teenagers especially might be ‘secretly’ buying presents online for the first time. Reminders about safe buying online would be very timely.

The National Cybersecurity Centre has a Suspicious Email Reporting Service (SERS) where you can send emails you are concerned about. The message might be from a company you don’t normally receive communications from, or someone you do not know. You may just have a hunch. If you are suspicious, you should report it. Your report of a phishing email will help us to act quickly, protecting many more people from being affected.

Just forward the email to: report@phishing.gov.uk

You can find more advice about online security here:
