As you’ll have gathered, led at Monday assembly and through discussions during the week, we are keen to show our concern for and sympathy with the country of Ukraine by holding a Non-Uniform day today.
Following our parents' information evening on the school’s approach to Relationship and Sex Education on Tuesday evening, our Main Speaker, Marilyn Hawes has made available 10 additional handouts to support parents in their role and management of their children's needs. You can find a recording of the event here and the relevant handouts here.
Additionally, our PC 6351 Angela FERRUCCI, LPA Safeguarding Schools Officer has shared with us their parents' newsletter, in which they raise awareness of exploitation and county lines here in the Thames Valley. That newsletter, and news of their new StreetSafe reporting tool can be found here. All our current pupils will receive awareness raising in these areas as part of their current PHSEE programme, directly from PC Ferrucci and from tutors.
