2 February 2016Safer Internet Day 2016Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. Globally, Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, each February to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile devices, especially among children and young people. Celebrated on the second day of the second week of the second month, each year on Safer Internet Day thousands of people join together to participate in events and activities to raise awareness of online safety issues, right across the globe. The online safety landscape has evolved over recent years from a focus on creating a ‘safer’ internet to creating a ‘better’ internet. Whether we are children and young people, parents and carers, educators or social care workers, or indeed industry, decision makers or politicians, we all have a role to play. In championing a better internet, the theme aims to encourage people to play their part in making the most of the positive opportunities offered online, while giving them the resilience, skills, knowledge and support they need to navigate any online risks they may come across. There are ways in which we can all contribute: Children and young people can help to create a better internet by being kind and respectful to others online, by protecting their online reputations (and those of others), and by seeking out positive opportunities to create, engage and share online. They can help to respond to the negative by being ‘helpful bystanders’: supporting peers if they encounter issues online, taking a stand against cyberbullying, and reporting any inappropriate or illegal content they find. Above all, children and young people should be encouraged to take their stand as digital citizens of the future – participating in debates on the future of the internet, and making their voices heard.    Parents and carers can help to create a better internet by maintaining an open and honest dialogue with their children about their online lives, by supporting them with their personal development online and helping them to deal with any concerns or issues, seeking out positive opportunities to engage with their children online, and helping their children to find and use good quality digital resources. They can help to respond to the negative by staying engaged with their child’s online activity (as appropriate to their age), by modelling positive online behaviours themselves, and by also reporting any inappropriate or illegal content they find.    Educators and social care workers can help to create a better internet by equipping children and young people with the digital literacy skills they require for today’s world, and giving them opportunities to use – and create – positive content online. They can help to respond to the negative by supporting young people if they encounter problems online, and by giving them the resilience, confidence and skills that young people need to navigate the internet safely.   Industry has a role to play by creating and promoting positive content and safe services online and by empowering users to respond to any issues by providing clear safety advice, a range of easy-to-use safety tools, and quick access to support if things do go wrong.   Decision makers and politicians need to provide the culture in which all of the above can function and thrive – for example, by ensuring that there are opportunities in the curriculum for children to learn and teachers to teach about online safety, ensuring that parents and carers have access to appropriate information and sources of support, and that industry are encouraged to self regulate their content and services. They must also take the lead in governance and legislation, and ultimately ensure the safety and wellbeing of children and young people through effective child protection strategies for the online world.   We hope that you will join with us, and Safer Internet Day supporters across the globe, on Tuesday 9 February 2016 – and beyond – to play your part in helping to create a better internet!

19 October 2015British Council International Schools AwardBritish Council International School Award success for Chobham Academy   Chobham Academy in East Village, Stratford has been awarded the British Council’s prestigious International School Award in recognition of its work to bring the world into the classroom. The International School Award is a badge of honour for schools that do outstanding work in international education, such as through links with partner schools overseas. Fostering an international dimension in the curriculum is at the heart of the British Council’s work with schools, so that young people gain the cultural understanding and skills they need to live and work as global citizens. Chobham Academy’s international work includes trips abroad, from the annual ski trip to the French Exchange trip, exchanging letters with students abroad to Skype chats and culture boxes. On hearing the news that Chobham Academy had received the award, Rebecca Hickey, Principal said: “This is an outstanding achievement and adds to our ever growing list of Awards accumulated for an Academy still in its infancy. We will continue to add to our projects and widen our students perceptions of the world and their role within it as global citizens.” British Council Chief Executive, Sir Ciarán Devane, said: ‘The school’s fantastic international work has rightfully earned it this prestigious award. The International School Award is a great chance for schools to demonstrate the important work they’re doing to bring the world into their classrooms. Adding an international dimension to children’s education ensures that they are truly global citizens and helps prepare them for successful future careers in an increasingly global economy.’ The award is now available worldwide in countries such as India, Egypt, Lebanon and Pakistan as part of the Connecting Classrooms programme, which is delivered by the British Council and supported by the Department for International Development (DFID). International Development Secretary Justine Greening said: “Young people must be at the heart of our work to create a safer and more prosperous world for everyone and we need to ensure their voices are heard if we are to win the fight against global poverty. That is why I am delighted to celebrate the international work of [name of school here] and the energy and passion of the young people involved. “The International School Award is a great way of highlighting how young people have the potential to change things for the better. I’m sure that schools getting involved will be broadening the horizons of their students, which will not only help their careers but benefit their wider lives in the future.” Around 5,000 International School Awards have been presented to successful schools in the UK since the scheme began in 1999. The International School Award encourages and supports schools to develop: An international ethos embedded throughout the school A majority of pupils within the school impacted by and involved in international work Collaborative curriculum-based work with a number of partner schools Curriculum-based work across a range of subjects Year-round international activity Involvement of the wider community   - ENDS -   To interview the school or for images, please contact Ben Starkey b.starkey@chobhamacademy.org.uk For more information about the International School Award, please contact our team at schools@britishcouncil.org Notes to Editors: The British Council International School Award started in 1999 to recognise the schools leading the way in instilling and developing a global dimension into the learning experience of all children and young people.

16 September 2015Rebecca Adlington visits Chobham!Rebecca Adlington has competed in six world championships and four Olympic Games. She won two gold medals in the 400 and 200 meter freestyle races in the Beijing Olympics. As some may know, Chobham Academy was built for the Olympics in 2012 and used for drug testing and was home for MI5 during the games. Rebecca Adlington had to do her drug test here before she won two bronze medals in the 200 and 400 meter freestyle race, she was very surprised how the magnificent building had been turned into a school. Three other guides and I, took Rebecca to the forth floor to take a look over the East village and the Olympic pool itself. Rebecca was amazed by the progress from a village made to home athletes to a thriving community of local residents. From the forth floor, we explained how each coloured ring was inspired by the Olympic rings as well as the athletes they are named after. We then took Rebecca down into some class rooms, to be honest, even year 10s were a bit star struck. We went into the sports hall and Rebecca was asked to sign her name on the wall so we can remember the inspirational athlete every time we go to PE and Dance. We also had our photographs taken in the sports hall with Rebecca before introducing her to year 7s in the theatre. Rebecca sat on a sofa with a sixth former for the interview. She asked how hard it was to train for her competitions. Rebecca replied with her schedule of ten sessions a week including her 5am starts before school. Being a competitive swimmer myself, I felt really inspired and motivated to keep doing my sessions and maybe become as successful as Rebecca. After the interview, unfortunately she had to go but by that wonderful experience with a star athlete, I feel really driven and motivated to do well in my studies and train hard at my swimming.     Khaleeq Khan
1 June 2015Year 13 Student Abdihakim participates in the International Citizen ServiceWe are incredibly proud of Year 13 student Abdihakim Abdalla, who will be setting off to Malawi shortly after his examinations have finished, to partake in a volunteering project. Please read Abdihakim's account below, and if you'd like to donate, just follow the 'JustGiving' link. We wish Abdihakim every success.     Hi!   My name's Abdihakim and I'm an 18 year old A-Level student here at Chobham who's taking part in a programme called ICS (International Citizen Service). I'll be volunteering for 10 weeks in Malawi with a charity called Progressio (I may have mentioned this to you before).   I'll be doing one of three different projects: Conservation work, HIV/AIDS awareness or sustainable farming methods. As part of the scheme, I have to raise £800 so the projects can actually go ahead (all of the money goes towards buying resources such as farming/classroom equipment so we can actually run the projects).    The reason I'm doing this, is because over the past few years I have been getting more and more into volunteering, so now I've decided to help out communities abroad who aren't as privileged as we are. It's also part of my efforts in becoming more of a global citizen.   I hope you decide to give! It's for a great cause! Also, if you could share this link around to anyone, that would be such a massive help.   https://www.justgiving.com/Abdihakim-Abdalla/   Thanks!   Abdihakim Abdalla
11 March 2015Ed Clancy Visits Chobham!Gold Medal Olympian Visits Chobham Academy Olympic gold medal-winning cyclist Ed Clancy has visited Chobham Academy to deliver a special assembly and meet staff and students. The track star achieved a gold medal in the team pursuit at London 2012, breaking the world record in the process. This was followed by a bronze in the Omnium event, complementing a team pursuit gold at Beijing 2008 and numerous other titles. Chobham Academy was developed as part of London 2012 legacy and has five school houses named after Olympic athletes. Ed led a special assembly for students in his house, giving them the chance to see the medals he won in the Olympic Park’s velodrome and ask questions. Students were particularly interested in hearing about Ed’s achievements on the track, the athletes he met at London 2012 and his frequent traveling across the world to compete. They also enjoyed Ed’s admission that he crashes his bike at least 10 times a year, showing that even top athletes aren’t perfect. Ed’s most serious piece of guidance to students was to always give their all, saying: “My advice is that you should base your confidence in life on the fact that you will give everything 100 per cent, many factors are out of your control but giving 100 per cent is all you can do. "I never knew or had complete confidence I was going to be successful, but I tried my best and then the success came." After some photos with his house and narrowly escaping having to sign every homework planner in the room, Ed went on a tour of the Academy’s building, which during the Olympics was a gym and training centre for athletes. He then dropped in on a Year 7 PE lesson and was impressed both by the Academy’s facilities and the way that senior PE students were playing a key role in leading the lesson for younger ones.A primary PE lesson was the last stop on Ed’s visit, where pupils were able to hold his London 2012 medals. Most were suitably excited; although one budding eight year old sportsman was keen to stress that he had already met Mo Farah! The Academy and in particular Ed Clancy House look forward to welcoming Ed again soon. Lisa Kattenhorn, Acting Principal of Chobham Academy, said:“We always aim to inspire students and give them opportunities to see how working hard and having confidence can bring success.  Ed’s visit on Tuesday really brought this message to life.  He was inspirational.”
