Ian Ramsey Church of England Academy has completed a comprehensive training programme demonstrating its commitment to providing high-quality remote-education, keeping children and young people safe online and supporting pupil’s wellbeing.
Ian Ramsey Church of England Academy, which is part of the Dayspring Trust with sister academy the Venerable Bede Church of England Academy in Sunderland, has received a National Online Safety, Safe Remote Education Accreditation for its successful approach towards safeguarding children and supporting pupil wellbeing during remote teaching and learning.
Mr Brian Janes, Head Teacher at Ian Ramsey Church of England Academy, said: “We are immensely proud of the work that all of our staff, and pupils, have done to make such a success of ‘live’ remote learning during this challenging period in our lifetimes. We are committed to providing safe remote-learning for all of our children now and in the future.
“Working online has allowed us to build upon our approach to teaching and learning, build new skills and develop a new way of working that will be important for the future.”
The training programme was delivered by ‘National Online Safety’, a multi-award-winning digital training provider with extensive resources in the area of online safety, developed in line with the Department of Education’s statutory requirements.
James Southworth, the co-founder of National Online Safety, said: “Congratulations to Ian Ramsey Church of England Academy on achieving their National Online Safety Safe Remote Education Accreditation. The school has shown its strong commitment to implementing the most effective approach to delivering remote education by completing this training programme.
“It can be increasingly difficult for schools to keep up with DfE expectations surrounding remote education to ensure both children and staff follow the necessary safeguarding protocols and know-how to spot any potential wellbeing issues. We arm schools with the knowledge they need to understand their responsibilities and how best to react to any problems.”
