Academy gains national recognition for safe remote learning in King's Lynn
A Lynn academy has been nationally recognised for successfully providing safe and high-quality remote education while continuing to support pupil wellbeing.
The Fen Rivers Academy SEMH Special School, in Kilham's Way, has achieved National Online Safety's Safe Remote Education Accreditation for its commitment to keeping children and young people safe online during remote teaching and learning.
James Southworth, co-founder at National Online Safety, said: “Congratulations to everyone at The Fen Rivers Academy on achieving their National Online Safety Safe Remote Education Accreditation. By completing our training programme, the school has shown its strong commitment to implementing the most effective approach to delivering remote education.”
“It can be increasingly difficult for schools to keep up with DfE expectations surrounding remote education to ensure both children and staff follow the necessary safeguarding protocols and know how to spot any potential wellbeing issues. We’ve armed schools with the knowledge they need to understand their responsibilities and how best to react to any problems.”
Amanda Fewkes, Headteacher at The Fen Rivers Academy said: “We are delighted that the hard work which has gone into ensuring our online curriculum provision for our learners is effective, valuable and most importantly safe has been recognised. The staff have worked incredibly hard to ensure no learner is digitally disadvantaged.”
