Everyone has the right to come to school and feel happy, safe and secure. Bullying can happen from time to time to anyone and for a variety of reasons and it is never acceptable.
Everyone of us is unique and different. We celebrate these differences and that is what makes the Roseland a great community. We stand up to bullies.
If someone is making you upset or worried, or if you know someone else who may be suffering, you must talk to a member of staff so we can help to make it better.
You can speak to any member of staff. The PASS office is open every break and lunch time.
You can email the Roseland PASS office using our AntiBullying email address:

Is your Password strong or weak?
Strong Password Basics
Just in case you forgot, here are the bare minimum requirements for a strong password, from Microsoft. A strong password:
- Is at least eight characters long.
- Does not contain your user name, real name, or company name.
- Does not contain a complete word.
- Is significantly different from previous passwords.
- Contains upper case letters.
- Contains lower case letters.
- Contains numbers.
- Contains symbols.
Now that we got that out of the way, let’s figure out how to make it memorable.
Be random, but human
We’ve established that random strings of numbers and symbols are tough for humans to remember. Random phrases, however, tend to stick. For example, which is more memorable:
The second string of silly phrases is much easier to remember.
Don’t make sense
Turtle$Bucket*Mishap doesn’t make sense. The three words wouldn’t typically—or ever—be next to one another in a sentence or phrase. This makes it harder for humans and password-hacking programs to guess. But the phrase is still three easily recognizable English words, and that means it can be guessed. To make a random string of phrases truly strong, we’ll need to make some adjustments.
Make it long
Long passwords are hard to crack. Period. Eight characters is the minimum, but 16 is even better. If you can remember it (and if the site/system you’re on will allow it), go for 24 or more. Use whole nonsense phrases like “WitchRikerBobTroutCoffeeBrooklyn.”
Staying safe on the Internet
CEOP help children stay safe online. Has someone acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know? It may be sexual chat, being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up. You can report it to CEOP by clicking on the button. Remember if you need immediate help call 999
For many, the internet is part of their everyday activity. When we use things regularly, we can take it for granted and drop our guard. However, staying safe on the internet is relatively simple as long as you stick to a few “SMART” rules:
Safe – Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information – such as your name, email, phone number, home address, or school name – to people who you don’t trust online…
Meeting – Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission and even then only when they can be present…
Accepting – Accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages!…
Reliable – Someone online may be lying about who they are, and information you find on the internet may not be reliable.
These SMART Rules are taken from http://www.kidsmart.org.uk/It’s well worth spending a little time browsing their website and looking at the issues surrounding the Internet. How about showing your parents or carers around the website so that they know that you know how to stay safe online?
Activities Week runs during July. The Roseland is one of only a few colleges that still runs this type of week. It provides a very special opportunity for our students to experience a wide and varied range of activities which helps in their all round development.
Students enjoy the experience and look forward to the next year.
Year 10 pupils undertake a week of work experience. The following two sites are useful when planning work experience placements
