What are we doing at school - Our online safety co-ordinator Mubina Asaria is a CEOP Ambassor (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre), working in collaboration with childnet International and the Ealing's Health Improvement Team. As well as delivering online safety training and awareness sessions to staff, parents  and governors, the school runs bespoke e-safety assemblies for years 7 to 11 and our Post 16 cohort.
Topics cover a range of issues relevant to each year group, and have included cyberbullying, digital footprints, sexting and online sexual exploitation - Click here to find out more. We are also developing e-safety lessons across the curriculum as part of our Life Skills and Thinking Skills programme. More recently, the school was awarded a grant from John Lyon's Charity to share and replicate our e-safety model with highschools, partner primary schools and organisations working with young people in Ealing.

Greenford High is delighted to announce that we have just been awarded the E-Safety Mark for the quality of work we do in this challenging area. 

E-Safety in all its forms, from dealing with Cyber-bullying to the dangers of online grooming, is a major issue these days and the work the school undertakes in this area has just gone through a rigorous assessment by Mark Baker, on behalf of the South West Grid for Learning. We came through with flying colours and were praised for the “depth… embedded nature… coherence of our plans and strong culture” that has been created. In particular, the work of our Cyber-Mentors, students supporting students, was strongly recognised.

Congratulations and thanks to Mubina Asaria who has led this area at Greenford High, supporting many other schools in Ealing. In turn, she would like to thank the following: Mr Manby, Mr Nock, PC Kleiber, Mr Robinson from Ealing LA, Governors Mr Sehmbi and Ms Keesoony, Ms Grimley, Ms Adhami, Ms Foster, Ms Hussan, Ms Thomas, Mr Millington, Mr Smith, Mr Halsey, Mr Babla, Ms Such and Ms Druce. And, of course, most of all – the students! 

Safer Internet Day 2017

This year, Greenford High marked Safer Internet Day by taking a group of CyberMentors to attend childnet International's online safety awareness day at the state of the art BT Centre in London - click here to find out more.

Over the last few years, we have celebrated Safer Internet Day by training up new cohorts of students as School CyberMentors, at Stanhope Primary School and Greenford High, to support victims of cyberbullying, as part of our 'E-Safety for Schools' project, funded by John Lyons Charity. The school now have a student taskforce of 86 trained CyberMentors across all year groups, taking part in assemblies to raise awareness as well   as running drop-in sessions to mentor peers. To celebrate Safer Intenet Day, we ran a week of e-safety assemblies, covering issues around digital footprints and the effect of posting inappropriate content online. 

CyberMentors - We now have a trained student taskforce of 90 CyberMentors at Greenford High, to provide peer support and advice to young people experiencing bullying and cyberbullying. As well as holding weekly drop-in sessions at school, they have led e-safety anti-cyberbullying workshops for pupils at 6 primary schools in Ealing, and  also mentor online via the BeatBullying website. Our CyberMentors have  won awards and been incredibly busy raising e-safety awareness in government and across the community - find out more:
