Advice and Support
In this day and age, our children are on a journey that at times can be amazing and at other times can be really difficult. As the teenage years creep up things can start to get hard; whether that’s at school, at home, with friends or coping with growing up. We have listened to our parents and below are some very good links if you are worried about how to support your child through difficult times. These links cover many different and sometimes complex issues ranging from mental health issues to coping with stress.
Extremism and Radicalisation
At The Eastbourne Academy, we pride ourselves on being a multi-cultural and diverse community where we celebrate how we all make contributions to British society.
You may have heard through the news about the strategy called Prevent. As part of this strategy, we teach about equality, what it means to be British and how to be a positive and active member of society. You will be able to see this in practice through initiatives such as our Student Leadership programme and the Sphere programme to name just two areas.
However, being a parent at this time can be very hard as well as confusing and you may well be concerned about your child and what they are accessing through mass media on radicalisation and extremism. Please use the link below for further information.
We hope it helps and if you have anything you would like to add to our rich curriculum on diversity and equality or if you wish to discuss a concern you can also contact us.
Educate Against Hate
We all want our children to live in a safe and loving environment so that they can grow up to become happy, confident adults. You will already know that your children can be vulnerable to risks both inside and outside the home, and will have taken steps to protect them so they can grow, learn and develop to their fullest potential.
Protecting your children from radicalisation and extremism is similar to protecting them from the other harms you may be more familiar with, such as drugs, gangs and sexual exploitation.
