Following our recent Ofsted inspection, we communicated to you that we would not be complacent and continue to work to ensure that your child receives the best possible educational experience at Outwood Grange Academy. With this in mind, and a focus on behaviour and community relationships we have employed a Safer Schools Partnership (Police) Officer (SSP). PC Richard Craig has been with the Academy since April 2012 and has been an invaluable resource.
The post of a SSP has become standard practice in our other academies, and having seen the benefits that this post brings to the students and the community, I am delighted that we have secured this post through West Yorkshire Police for Outwood Grange Academy. PC Craig has helped and supported the whole Outwood community in relation to building links and establishing a culture of proactive policing. He has worked on some key issues in terms of sexualisation of young people and anti-social behaviour. We hope that the relationship long continues.
There is an excellent government guide to the work of a SSP on the website:
Cyber bullying is the use of the Internet and related technologies to harm other people, in a deliberate, repeated, and hostile manner.
