ner

I love music. I make tracks in my spare time at home and I often go to a studio with my friend and we make really good songs.

WAS IT HARD WORK BEING IN A STAGE MUSICAL?

Very hard, very tiring, long hours, but soooo worth it!

YOU HAVE A BAD BACK, DOES IT HURT TO DANCE? Not when I’m dancing, but if I get cramp if I stand around for a while.

DO YOU HAVE A GIRLFRIEND?

Not at the moment, but I am looking!

WHAT HOBBIES DO YOU HAVE?

Loads, but particularly football and trampolining.

DO YOU HAVE ANY BAD HABITS? I sleep way too much!

WHAT’S BEEN THE MOST EXCITING THING SINCE THE ROYAL VARIETY SHOW? It would have to be Streetdance 3D.

HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED?

I was very good friends with the directors of the film. They directed the Access 2 All Areas DVD I released last year.

DO YOU ACT AS WELL AS DANCE IN IT?

I do slightly more acting although I do dance at the end. I loved acting!

WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Streetdancers who need rehearsal space and get offered some at a ballet school, but only if they incorporate ballet dancers into their routines. They have to teach them street and the streetdancers get to do ballet.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF BALLET?

I love ballet. I respect ballet dancers a lot because it’s strict and they’re very talented!

BIG

FACTS Born in Warrington, George Sampson auditioned for the first series of Britain’s Got Talent in 2007 when he was 14. He got a Yes from Simon Cowell, but No from Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan. He returned in 2008 and went on to win the show with his streetdance performance to the Mint Royale version of Singin’ In The Rain, complete with artificial rain machine. As part of his prize, he appeared in that year’s Royal Variety Show. Streetdance 3D also features performances by last year’s Britian’s Got Talent winners, Diversity and fellow finalists Flawless. The film co-stars Nichola Burley as the streetdance crew leader Carly and Richard Winsor as ballet dancer Tomas. Richard previously played a Liquorice Allsort in a TV version of Nutcracker!

WHEN DID YOU START DANCING?

When I was six I went to stage school and immediately fell in love with dance.

WHAT DID YOUR SCHOOLFRIENDS THINK ABOUT IT?

They weren’t too big on it because it was seen as a female hobby.

It was amazing, not too hard. And the more shots you did, the better you looked on camera, so it was worth getting tired!

YOU’RE GOING TO BE IN THE TV SERIES WATERLOO ROAD? WILL YOU BE DANCING?

DID YOU GET BULLIED?

I don’t dance but I do a lot of acting. I play a character called Kyle Stack who is very naughty and very uncontrollable, but has a decent heart if you can find it.

WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE DANCER?

DO YOU THINK YOU’LL GIVE UP DANCING AND JUST ACT?

Not really. People called me names a few times, but I let it pass and it soon stopped.

Gene Kelly.

Nooo, never. I couldn’t betray dancing, it’s my life!

DO YOU DO ANY DANCING OTHER THAN STREET DANCING?

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE A DANCE SCHOOL?

I also do breakdance, popping, locking, house, freerunning/gymnastics.

One day, yes. I’m having talks about it at the moment, but I have time yet to decide when, where and how.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE DOING THE ROYAL VARIETY SHOW?

I WANT TO BE A DANCER. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

YOU HAD A HIT SINGLE WITH GET UP ON THE DANCE FLOOR, WOULD YOU LIKE TO MAKE ANOTHER RECORD?

WHAT’S THE BEST AND WORST THING ABOUT BEING FAMOUS?

Amazing! Meeting the Prince, the celebs there, the whole night, the dance, the crowd and everything!

I love music. I make tracks in my spare time at home and I often go to a studio with my friend and we make really good songs. I’d definitely have another go.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE MAKING THE FILM?

Just keep practising. The more you practise, the better you get. Don’ let no one get in the way of what you do and just do your best at all times.

The best is the fans. They make you and break you and I love them to pieces. The worst would be, er, nothing!

Streetdance 3D is in cinemas now.

Bakewell Showground Spectacular It certainly was “spectacular”. A fun-filled family day out to be had by all, with camping facilities for those that were brave enough to face the weather. There was a fun fair with rides for all the family to enjoy, a craft tent with something for everyone, rally cars, motorbikes, vintage tractors and classic caterpillar machinery, the like of which has never been seen before at the Bakewell Showground. Plus a fantastic selection of food available at reasonable prices. Something to cater for every taste. This was the first year the event had been organised and you can be assured that next year it will be even bigger with more stalls and attractions to tempt you to this family day out. Put the date in your diary now for the May Bank Holiday 2011 and go along and have some fun.

GREAT DAYS OUT

FOR THE FAMILY

Whatever are we going to do with the kids over the Whitsun holidays? That’s not a question you’ll hear Primary Times readers asking. Not when there’s so much going on around Derbyshire. I mean, where else are you going to be able to see llama racing as they negotiate an obstacle course with slalom poles and jumps! A first in the UK, that’s just one of the many attractions lined up at this year’s Derbyshire County Show, the 131st, at The Showground in Elvaston on Sunday June 27. There’s attractions and amusements galore for the whole family with this year’s Arena events including Birds of Prey, Sheep Dog demonstrations, an appearance by Big Pete, the world’s tallest Monster Truck, as it soars 16ft into the air before coming down on a deck of cars and a show of strength from three time UK’s Strongest Man winner, The Mighty as he snaps 6” nails, walks on broken glass and holds a seated

lady in his teeth. All this plus vintage cars, motorcycles and tractors, the Dog Show, Show Jumping, rural crafts, livestock and small animal sections, and the ever welcome Farmers Market. Indulge too much in their fine products and you may find you need to work off some surplus pounds. And what a better fun family way to do that than cycling and exploring the beautiful countryside of Derbyshire and the Peak District National Park. With 58 miles of traffic free off-road cycling trails it’s ideal for family cycling while the remote moorland bridleways provide more of a challenge for experienced mountain bikers.

If you’ve worked up an appetite travelling out and about, why not treat the taste buds in the Tea Room at Bryer’s Heritage Farm in Markeaton and then stroll around to see a real working farm in action, and meet a variety of traditional and endangered British Breeds. Or, if you’ve been exploring the Monsal Trail cycling and walking route around Bakewell, head for the recently opened family friendly Hassop Station Café, a refurbished Victorian railway station that serves cakes and sandwiches to give you the boost to finish that journey.

ITY SECURIA L SPEC

Jim Watson, managing director of Shred Easy, one of the UK’s largest shredding companies, explains the importance of properly destroying confidential data in the education sector: Security in schools

Schools house a huge range of confidential electronic and hard copy data, everything from pupil’s records, registers, newsletters, reports and log books. By law all companies and public sector organisations must now destroy their confidential data properly or face a penalty up to £500,000 imposed by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for breaching the Data Protection Act. As a public sector institution, schools have a moral and legal obligation to control confidential data to avoid fraud and personal information getting into the wrong hands. The most effective way to safeguard redundant confidential information stored and held on paper, PCs and/or laptops is by shredding it. Scare stories regularly appear in the press outlining the mishandling of the general public’s personal data. For example, the personal details of 9,000 school pupils were recently stolen from the home of a Barnet Council worker. Twenty unauthorised and unencrypted CDs and memory sticks with details including names, date of birth, addresses, phone numbers and school attainment were taken from the house. Incidents like this highlight how easy it is for thieves to steal personal data.

Data theft

According to Home Office figures, identity fraud is costing the UK £1.7billion a year that’s £35 a head for the entire population. It’s hardly surprising when roughly 60 million people in the UK use sheets of paper to exchange information. Identity theft and fraud has become one of the fastest growing areas of crime, increasing by a phenomenal 36% last year losses 18

10. D Ed Security Feature.indd 18

WHITSUN 2010 ISSUE

equivalent to £631 a year, for every household in Britain. The answer is to monitor and control the use and flow of data much more carefully, take extra security precautions and, perhaps most importantly, take expert advice about disposal of your printed matter, IT equipment and data stored on all manner of tapes discs, micro chips and USB sticks.

Destruction

The systematic, successful and responsible collection and destruction of confidential documents and data is one of the most straightforward and obvious ways this can be achieved. Staff must be able to give parents absolute assurance that the sort of leaks of information and data that have plagued schools in recent years just cannot happen any more. Staff need to be trained on how to implement slicker processes to deal with sensitive information quickly in an eco-friendly way in full view of instructing or inspecting officials, when necessary.

Legalities

Schools are also advised to avoid the possibility of expensive litigation by complying with confidentiality and data protection laws. For example, various ICO fines have been imposed on big name companies guilty of not securing customer data appropriately. It is vital to demonstrate a real sense of responsibility to a school’s increasingly eco-aware public. Headmasters/ mistresses need to be able to reassure parents, teachers and the authorities they are doing everything they can to reduce data threats.

Destroying the evidence

School records and information about pupils can now be destroyed highly effectively and efficiently. Perhaps equally as important, paper can be recycled too, so schools can fulfil their environmental obligations while protecting themselves from prosecution and their clients and stakeholders from risk. A single visit from a state-of-the-art shredding truck can completely dispose of a mass of collected confidential data. Currently, UK recycling is estimated to save more than 18 million tonnes of C02 a year – the equivalent of taking five million cars off the road.

TOP 10

TIPS

(1.) Create a confidential data policy – if you don’t have one you are already in the high risk category for being a victim of data theft. (2.) Store data safely – don’t assume that bagging it up is the end of the matter. (3.) Destroy data properly – shred all confidential data. Arrange for a professional company to help store, collect and securely destroy information. Ensure you know where your data is heading or work with an on-site shredding company. (4.) Check identities – use credit reference agencies to verify the identity of preferred suppliers to your school. (5.) Secure your accounts – don’t allow details of banking to escape into the public domain. (6.) Train staff on how to deal with confidential data properly. Most public sector fraud is committed by people within the organisation (7.) Keep post safe – theft of post is a major issue for local authorities. (8.) Restrict key docume nts – don’t allow staff to have full access to authority documents. This applies to paper and digital data. (9.) Use anti virus software – public sector workers still get fleeced by online scammers. Installing credible antivirus software is necessary to combat this threat. (10.) Beware of carrying large amounts of confidential data on laptops, data sticks or mobile devices such as Blackberrys and iPhones. These small portable gadgets are magnets for thieves who can exploit your confidential information.
