Conflict in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories

Resources to aid conversations

In light of the significant escalation in violence in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories we have put together some resources to support conversations with young people. Our thoughts are with all of the innocent victims of this devastating conflict

  • Signpost children and young people to the information on the Childline website - WORRIES ABOUT THE WORLD
  • Mental Health Foundation - Talking to children about scary world events
  • DfE – Educate Against Hate
  • The Community Security Trust (CST) has published a number of resources on their social media feeds, including guidance on how to communicate about Israel in a non-antisemitic way. A host of other resources can be found on their website here: Educational Resources – CST – Protecting Our Jewish Community. CST also has a national emergency number which should be used to report antisemitic attacks, alongside calling 999: 0800 032 3263.
  • Tell Mama is a confidential support service for those suffering from anti-Muslim hate and discrimination across the UK. Their website features a number of different ways to report anti-Muslim incidents, including via phone or WhatsApp: Report in Anti-Muslim Hate or Islamophobia (tellmamauk.org). The site also hosts useful resources, including on mosque security

FINANCIALLY MOTIVATED SEXUALLY EXTORTION 

The National Crime Agency (NCA) has written to all schools asking them to communicate with parents/ carers. The NCA is concerned about the global increase in cases of financially motivated sexual sometimes called ‘sextortion’. This happens when a criminal pretends to be someone else online and tricks a young person, or adult, into sending nude or semi-nude pictures of themselves. The criminal then makes threats in order to get money or more images.

A detailed letter from the NCA is attached and is available here.

If you have any concerns or questions please contact the year office for your child by email, for example Year7@allertonhigh.org.uk. Our Year Managers and Year Coaches are trained in supporting students who are experiencing criminal behaviour online.

We have had some cases of this kind and have been well supported by our Safer Schools Police Officer in dealing with them.
