This Week's Newsletter|
The Federation Newsletter (and previous editions) can be accessed using the link below.
Several families have been enquiring about school session times for the Academic Year commencing September 2017. The attached document has been approved by the Governors and gives term time openings for the year in question. It will also be available on the Federation Information page.
Do you monitor your child's phone usage?|
I wrote an item in last week's newsletter (link above) referring to a serious incident involving some of our children. There is no suggestion that the children were to blame, but they were exposed to totally unsuitable and inappropriate behaviour (on line) from an adult male - not known to them. Like so many young people, they had been using one of the many messaging sites (ooVoo) and ended up receiving unsolicited communication of a very unsavoury nature. Please be aware of the potential for this to occur and take time to discuss 'phone use with your child. I know that many children are able to access their 'phones after bedtime and very many 'cyber offences' ( bullying / messaging etc.) happen after 8pm. Please do not permit your child to bring a 'phone to school - there is no need whatsoever as we will always make contact in an emergency. A small core of parents still permit their child to bring a 'phone to school. These are locked in the office all day. However, there have been instances of messages and images being shared with friends on the way home over which we (and you) have no control. Please take responsibility for your child's 'phone use - all children are vulnerable.
