Tips for a safe festive night out

Update Thursday 12th December 2019

 

12 top tips for a Festive safe night out

  • Don’t be tempted to drink too much before the night begins. People who preload are more likely to become involved in violent crime or injure themselves.
  • Make sure you have something to eat before a night out and drink water regularly.
  • Don’t make yourself vulnerable by getting too drunk – know your limits.
  • Stay with friends, look out for one another and make sure you all get home safely.
  • Arrange a meeting point and rendezvous times in case you get separated from friends.
  • Pre-book safe transport home and do not accept lifts from strangers.
  • Save the number of a licensed taxi firm in your mobile phone. Always check the driver’s identification and never get into an unlicensed taxi.
  • Avoid walking alone and never take shortcuts through dark alleys or large open spaces.
  • Stash some cash in case you lose your purse or wallet.
  • Store an ICE (in case of emergency) number on your phone.
  • Keep an eye on your drinks and never leave them unattended. Even soft drinks could get spiked.
  • Getting behind the wheel after drinking can have tragic consequences, the advice is simple, don’t drink and drive and never be a passenger of a drunk driver.

County Lines – Further Updates

Update Thursday 26th September 2019

To continue to build upon county lines information, further details are outlined in this weeks safeguarding update which share the stark county lines message further. 

What is County Lines?

Children as young as 7 are being put in danger by criminals who are taking advantage as to how innocent and inexperienced these young people are. Any child could be exploited, no matter of their background.

Criminal exploitation is also known as ‘county lines’ and is when gangs and organised crime networks groom and exploit children to sell drugs. Often these children are made to travel across counties and they use dedicated mobile phone ‘lines’ to sell drugs.

No one really knows how many young people across the country are being forced to take part, but The Children’s Commissioner estimates there are at least 46,000 children in England who are involved in gang activity. It is estimated that around 4,000 teenagers in London alone are being exploited through child criminal exploitation, or ‘county lines’.

Tragically the young people exploited through ‘county lines’ can often be treated as criminals themselves.

We want these vulnerable children to be recognised as victims of trafficking and exploitation. We want them to receive the support they need to deal with the trauma they have been through.

Criminals are deliberately targeting vulnerable children – those who are homeless, experiencing learning difficulties, going through family breakdowns, struggling at school, living in care homes or trapped in poverty.

These criminals groom children into trafficking their drugs for them with promises of money, friendship and status. Once they’ve been drawn in, these children are controlled using threats, violence and sexual abuse, leaving them traumatised and living in fear.

However they become trapped in criminal exploitation, the young people involved feel as if they have no choice but to continue doing what the criminals want.

County Lines – Police Mapping Data (BBC)

Update Thursday 19th September 2019

County lines is a term used to describe gangs and organised criminal networks involved in exporting illegal drugs out of bigger cities into one or more smaller towns in the UK, using dedicated mobile phone lines or other form of ‘deal line.

The BBC reports that police data shows drug crimes in England and Wales have fallen by more than 50,000 in the past five years. However, the national averages hide a major shift in where drug crimes are being committed.

In London, 30 out of 36 areas saw either a decrease or no significant change in recorded drug crime over the past five years. Moving outside of the capital, in the South East and East of England, there were 74 small towns and villages that bucked the trend and saw increases in drug crime.

The BBC article (link below) is very helpful in learning more about this national issue. The interactive maps show where the changes have taken place and how this impacts upon us in Nottinghamshire.

Safeguarding Updates

Update Thursday 12th September 2019

Ofsted have just introduced the Education Inspection Framework (EIF) to support robustly monitoring the quality of FE providers and the quality of what we do.

The EIF has four judgements:

  • Quality of Education
  • Behaviour and Attitudes
  • Personal Development
  • Leadership and Management

Personal Development includes:

  • British values
  • Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development
  • Relationships and sex education
  • Health education, including safety
  • Mental health awareness and support

Safeguarding won’t be graded specifically in the new Ofsted Education Inspection Framework for September 2019, but it will be referenced in the Leadership and Management section of the report. Leadership and Management is everyone’s responsibility.

The EIF handbook says, ‘when safeguarding is ineffective, this is likely to lead to an inadequate leadership and management judgement’. However, if there are minor weaknesses in safeguarding arrangements that are easy to put right and do not leave children either being harmed or at risk of harm then a ‘requires improvement’ judgement may be made.

Inspectors will be looking for evidence that ‘the provider has a culture of safeguarding that supports effective arrangements to identify learners who may be at risk; which responds in a timely way; and that staff recruitment is managed and any allegations are dealt with appropriately’.

As a learner at ATTFE should you raise a safeguarding issue with us as your learning provider, your expectation is that we should address this swiftly working with yourself and if required other agencies. All ATTFE staff members (in any role) are trained in safeguarding which will ensure that they professionally respond to any safeguarding issues raised.

Safeguarding Updates

Update Thursday 5th September 2019

ATTFE have a significant change to paperwork and safeguarding processes for 2019/20.  All  learners, regardless of funding stream, campus or age will be issued with our learner safeguarding card on their first session.  This card shares our revised safeguarding processes as well as the learner website safeguarding link (this page!).

ATTFE will be adding safeguarding information weekly to this link which will provide you with up-to-date safeguarding information.  Please visit the site weekly to see the new article.

Upskirting Laws

Update Thursday 29th August 2019

In April 2019, the Voyeurism Act 2019 came in to force which added two new offences to the Sexual Offences Act 2003 to ensure ‘upskirting’ was addressed.

The offences include taking a photograph or video recording beneath the skirt or dress of a person without consent. In education terms, this offence can be classed as peer-on-peer abuse and is mentioned in the Keeping Children Safe in Education guidance.

Upskirting

Online reputation

Update Thursday 31st October 2019

Your digital footprint is the mark that you leave behind when using the internet and can shape your online reputation. Your digital footprints are made up of the content you create, post and share; as well as the content that others post, and share, with you and about you.

Your digital footprints can be positive or negative and affects how people see you now or in the future. Use our simple check list to help manage and maintain your online reputation.

  1. Search yourself online:do you know what is online about you? Do a simple web search of your name and see what you can find. If you find something you aren’t happy with, take the necessary steps to get that content removed. Remember if your Facebook or Twitter pages appear you can change this by adjusting your privacy settings.
  2. Check privacy settings: make sure you know what information you are sharing on the websites you use, in particular on social networking sites. Most social networking sites have privacy settings to help you manage the content you share and who you share it with; you can decide if you want your posts to be shared with your online friends and followers only or with the public. Keep in mind that your friend’s content and their settings can also affect your digital footprint.
  3. Think before you post: before you post that funny picture of your friend, or make that joke about someone on Twitter, ask yourself do you want everyone to see it; friends, family, grandparents, future employers? Would you be happy for others to post that type of content about you? You should be proud of everything you post online, remember once it is online it could potentially be there forever!
  4. Deactivate and delete: when you stop using a social networking profile or website, it’s a good idea to deactivate or delete your account. This will mean the content is no longer live and should not be searchable online; it will also remove the risk of these accounts being hacked without you knowing.
  5. Make a positive footprint: we hear a lot about the negative footprints left behind online. The best way to keep your online reputation in check is to use your time online to get creative and create a positive footprint.  For example why not write a blog to promote all the great things you are doing, fundraise for a charity using an online sponsorship page or create a video to teach others something new.

Sex, Relationships and the Internet

Update Thursday 24th October 2019

SEX, RELATIONSHIPS and the INTERNET……three things that get a little complicated! The fabulous ‘thinkuknow’ website has a great link that supports sharing advice, information, contact numbers and facts https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/14_plus/. Technology makes it easier for us to ‘connect’, but it also has the ability to increase peer pressure.

The article below is also from thinkuknow. Take time to read and then follow the link previously mentioned if you required further information on how to tackle this problem.

Selfies: the naked truth

Sharing a picture of yourself takes seconds. You can even add a cute filter and before a minute has passed, loads of people who you may or may not know have viewed your selfie.

The social media platforms made just for sharing photos are getting bigger and bigger. Instagram has over 1 billion active users and there are 20,000 images shared on Snapchat every second!

Lots of people share photos of themselves regularly – like holiday snaps, silly selfies, or group shots with friends. Some people might think that sharing more revealing photos, like naked or semi naked (nude) pics happens all the time too. But that’s actually not the case – research shows it’s not something that most young people do. Although not everyone’s doing it, you might be thinking about sending a naked selfie, either:

  • To a boyfriend or girlfriend
  • As a way to flirt with someone you like
  • To make your friends laugh
  • Or because you feel pressured to

Whatever the reason, there are always risks involved, particularly if you’re not doing it because you want to. There’s always a chance that an image could be shared further, which makes it important to say no if you don’t feel comfortable.

If you have already shared something you’re worried about, it’s never too late to get help. Check out our advice on ‘What if I’ve already sent a nude image?’.

3 ways to say ‘no’

Saying ‘no’ is not always easy, especially if it’s to someone you really care about. There are a few different ways that you can say ‘no’ – choose whichever way you’re most comfortable with. Here are some suggestions for what you could say in different situations:

  • Someone you’re in a relationship with: Let them know you’re not comfortable, if they respect and value you, they’ll understand.
  • Someone you know: Keep it light – Zipit app has helped lots of young people to say no in a funny way.
  • Someone you don’t know: Ignore, block and report, so they can’t continue to contact you.

Peer on Peer Abuse

Update Thursday 17th October 2019

What is peer-on-peer abuse?

Peer-on-peer abuse is any form of physical, sexual, emotional and financial abuse, and coercive control exercised between children, and within children’s relationships (both intimate and non-intimate), friendships, and wider peer associations.

Peer-on-peer abuse can take various forms, including (but not limited to): serious bullying (including cyberbullying), relationship abuse, domestic violence and abuse, child sexual exploitation, youth and serious youth violence, harmful sexual behaviour and/or prejudice-based violence including, but not limited to, gender-based violence.

Online peer-on-peer abuse is any form of peer-on-peer abuse with a digital element, for example, sexting, online abuse, coercion and exploitation, peer-on-peer grooming, threatening language delivered via online means, the distribution of sexualised content, and harassment.

It is really important that we all take time and care to tackle peer-on-peer abuse and ensure that it doesn’t happen in any context. If you are aware of peer-on-peer abuse taking place then please follow our safeguarding referral processes by emailing t.price@attfe.org.uk.

Email Scams and Password Protection

Update Thursday 10th October 2019

Safeguarding Alert: Porn Email Scam

Over three billion fake emails are sent out each day, and many of them are phishing emails aiming to trick people into passing over their passwords and other data, especially for their bank accounts.

An insidious and alarming version of a phishing email is the ‘porn email scam’. In this scam a victim is told that the attacker has video of the person watching illegal pornographic content, sometimes even titled ‘I know you’re a pedo’ (sic). The email includes the demand that unless an amount of money is paid by BitCoin, the attackers will release the images to everyone on the victim’s contact list.

There are an estimated 8m different sextortion emails and over 200m compromised accounts that could be targeted. Could yours be one of them?

If you are sent one of these ‘porn scams’:

  • Don’t panic, take a step back – Stop, Pause and Think.
  • Do your research – Copy and paste the text into Google.
  • Take action to protect yourself – Think about contacting the police.
  • Improve your digital security – Change passwords and check your email security.
  • Don’t stay silent – Talk to someone or call The Samaritans.

We have received several of these emails into our office and alarmingly, in one, the subject line was a password that we have regularly used. As you can imagine this was a huge shock.

There are many ways that passwords may be collected, but a data breach is the most common way that millions of email addresses and password pairs get out into the ‘wild’.

One way to find out whether your email address has ever been comprised is to go to the website ‘Have I Been Pwnd’ https://haveibeenpwned.com/ and enter your email address. When I entered one of my private email addresses I found I had been ‘pwned’ on seven occasions including these well known sites:

Adobe (2018)
Animoto (2018)
Bitly (2014)
Canva (2019)

More information, including examples of these scam emails can be found here: https://shop.ineqe.com/blogs/news/safeguarding-alert-porn-email-scam

Test Your Password

‘How secure is my password’ is website where you can check how quickly ‘hackers’ would take to guess your password. The top ten passwords people use are:

123456
password
123456789
12345678
12345
111111
1234567
sunshine
qwerty
iloveyou
(Source: Digital Trends https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/top-100-worst-passwords-2018/)

According to ‘How secure is my password’ all these passwords can be guessed ‘instantly’. One easy way to strengthen a password is to make it longer, and add at least one special character like ! or ?. Simply adding an ! to sunshine in the above list would now take 2 hours to crack, two exclamation marks would take 4 days. By adding the name of the site you’re on, you could strengthen your password so it would need 143 trillion years to crack.

sunshine – instantly
sunshine! – 2 hours
sunshine!! – 4 days
sunshine!!sainsburys – 143 TRILLION YEARS!!

Jessie & Friends: online safety education

Update Thursday 3rd October 2019

Keeping safe online is hard for anyone, especially a young person. Having such easy access to the internet through computers and mobile devices simply increases risk. It is therefore really important that we all take time to ensure that we know how to keep ourselves, families and friends ‘safe’ when accessing the world wide web.

Below is a link which is aimed at Primary school children, but remains highly relevant to us all. It shares very basic internet safety which even if we already ‘know’ provides a strong reminder as to what we need to do to continually keep safe online.

Jessie & Friends: online safety education (ThinkUKnow)

Introducing the idea of a safer internet to younger children can be quite challenging. Jessie & Friends is a series of three animations from online safety specialist at the National Crime Agency’s CEOP Command.

The videos follow the adventures of Jessie, Tia and Mo as they begin to navigate the online world, watching videos, sharing pictures and playing games. A storybook accompanies each episode, to help adults keep the conversation going with the children.

Peer-on-peer Abuse

Update Thursday 28th November 2019

What is peer-on-peer abuse? Peer-on-peer abuse is any form of physical, sexual, emotional and financial abuse, and coercive control exercised between children, and within children’s relationships (both intimate and non-intimate), friendships, and wider peer associations.

Peer-on-peer abuse can take various forms, including (but not limited to): serious bullying (including cyberbullying), relationship abuse, domestic violence and abuse, child sexual exploitation, youth and serious youth violence, harmful sexual behaviour and/or prejudice-based violence including, but not limited to, gender-based violence.

Online peer-on-peer abuse is any form of peer-on-peer abuse with a digital element, for example, sexting, online abuse, coercion and exploitation, peer-on-peer grooming, threatening language delivered via online means, the distribution of sexualised content, and harassment.

If you feel at any point that you are being impacted by peer-on-peer abuse then it is really important that you share this with your tutor. Peer-on-peer abuse is not limited to under 18’s, it can happen at any age. It is very real and can be frightening. All staff at ATTFE are trained to make an appropriate in-house safeguarding referral to support anyone who is experiencing peer-on-peer abuse. Don’t suffer in silence, as we will be able to help. Alternatively, please contact the bullying uk helpline via the following link https://www.bullying.co.uk/

Relaxation Techniques – Tackling Mental Health

Update Thursday 21st November 2019

Why is relaxation important?

Life is busy, whether you’re at school, college or work. Sometimes, the pressures can seem all a bit too much. Taking some time off for relaxation is vital to help your mind and body switch off from those pressures.

Some mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression can be caused by “too much work and not enough play”. And not taking time out for relaxation may make any existing mental health issue worse.

Relaxation is an important part of maintaining positive mental wellbeing.

The stimulants don’t work

It’s tempting, after a pressured day to reach for a cigarette, bottle of wine or even drugs to wind down. But these quick fixes are stimulants, and won’t help you to relax properly. They’re also bad for both your physical and mental health.

Drugs, such as cannabis can act as a depressant, making users paranoid and losing their ambition and drive. Drugs and alcohol can cause or exacerbate mental health problems.

Stress-busting relaxation techniques

Pause – make time during the day to take breaks or pauses. Pausing throughout the day can prevent stress from building up.

  • Stop what you are doing
  • Look out of the window
  • Let your shoulders drop
  • Stretch
  • Allow your mind to calm down

If you find yourself in a stressful situation such as a difficult phone call, a crowded train journey home or a looming essay deadline, give yourself time afterwards to pause and calm down.

Deep breathing – Taking deep breaths after a stressful situation and concentrating on your breathing can have a calming effect and help you relax.

  • Close your eyes
  • Take deep breaths in and out
  • Think of your favourite place, maybe somewhere that you go on holiday
  • Focus on the place and picture yourself there
  • What can you see? What can you smell? What can you feel?

Imagining being in your favourite place can take you away from your current stressful situation and help you relax and calm down. It can also help prevent stress levels gradually rising throughout the day.

Mindfulness

Be mindful – be more aware of the present moment, including your thoughts and feelings, your body and the world around you. Some people call this awareness “mindfulness”. It can positively change the way you feel about life and how you approach challenges.

Ask your tutor about the well-being initiatives that we have running for all staff / learners within ATTFE and how you can access them. These are designed to support and promote well-being for all.

Suicide Prevention

Update Thursday 14th November 2019

What are suicidal feelings?

You might be feeling down and sad. But if those feelings have become very deep and intense, and you don’t know what to do about them, you might think the only solution is to end your life. But there is hope for you, and you can get through it.

You’re not the only one who feels this way – many people feel suicidal at some time in their lives. What’s important for you to know is that there are lots of ways of dealing with this feeling and overcoming it. It’s possible to come out the other side and feel okay again.

You might experience suicidal feelings if you:

  • Are depressed or have another mental illness
  • Struggle with low self-esteem
  • Use drugs or alcohol, especially when you’re upset
  • Feel anxious about pressures you face today or in the future
  • Feel under pressure from family or your peers

These feelings can get in the way of everything else – so much that you might find it hard to believe that you can feel better. But you can, whatever the problem is.

If you feel like this at any point, alert your tutor who will undertake a safeguarding referral where we can support you further. We have access to a counsellor who is exceptionally well trained in supporting people who feel like this. You are not on your own, simply alert us.

Emergency Contact Details – Wellbeing

Update Thursday 7th November 2019

Learner wellbeing is at the heart of what we do, from safeguarding to focusing upon it in lessons. If you are struggling at any point, you can alert your tutor. This can be in person (at the start, end of discretely in the middle of a class) or via a comment on your Individual Learning Plan [ILP].

At ATTFE we try and ensure that we embed social and emotional skills in to our curriculum to build resilience and frame how we can all manage our mental health and wellbeing on a day to day basis.

If you are struggling at any point and are not able to alert your tutor for help then these emergency contact details may be able to help you.
