This week is E safety week at Shirebrook Academy. The online environment changes rapidly and it is important the everyone keeps their privacy settings and knowledge up to date. The Academy has a team of e safety ambassadors who are available to support students, staff and parents at the Academy. Students will be completing a range of activities in form groups designed to make them think about their online behaviour and the digital footprint which they leave behind. The website now includes two additional pages; e safety for students and e safety for parents. These pages include a range of resources and links designed to support you with your online behvaiour and safety. If you need more help and advice please contact Mrs Skelton.
If you need to report an online safety issue you can access the CEOP button on the right of this page or the SHARP system.
What is an Academy Ambassador?
The Y11 Academy Ambassador scheme rewards our oldest students for being a positive role model across the academy for younger students and the community in general. Students apply to be an Ambassador and if successful are appointed to the role throughout their time in Year 11. Ambassadors represent the Academy at many of the functions across the year, supporting younger students and the community.

A Model Performance
Shirebrook Academy hosted the annual Y5/6 Sports Hall Athletics Competition, an event which allows Shirebrook’s finest athletes to demonstrate their speed, endurance and power in a variety of events.
Over 70 students competed from eight local primary schools in events officiated by sports leaders and organised by Bolsover School Sports Partnership.
After an entertaining event it was the students from Model Village Primary School who romped home winning both the boys and girls events and the competition as a whole. Good luck to Model Village in the District competition.
