Update from Jon Whitcombe, Trust Principal -

Secondary Statement

As you will be aware, the DfE has stated that Year 10 and Year 12 students will receive some “face to face” contact with their teachers during Term 6. Currently, we are awaiting guidance from the DfE as to what this means in practice. 

Once the guidance is published we will develop our plans and make the necessary arrangements. On June 1st we will write to you explaining what “face to face” means in practice and we will be in a position to confirm when this will commence. 

Please note that the current arrangements for online teaching for Years 10 and 12 will continue until further notice.

Staying Safe Online

How can our pupils stay safe online?

When young people are online it's important to stay safe and to make sure that they do not share things that could put them in danger. This advice will help your children stay safe online.

When we think about staying safe online we can break it down into some easy to remember steps.

 

Profile Pictures

When choosing profile pictures for a social networking website like Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat or Whatsapp, avoid photos that could give strangers clues about where you live or go to school.

Privacy Settings

Check privacy and security settings regularly as the social networking sites regularly update and change them.

Sharing Content Online

Think about what should be shared in public and what should not when posting images or comments. Don't upload or share anything you wouldn't want parents, teachers or friends seeing. Once you press send it is no longer private, you can't be sure who will end up seeing it.

Passwords

Never share or reveal your passwords. Use strong passwords that are hard for others to guess, using a mix of letters and numbers. Keep passwords to yourself and change them regularly.

Online Interaction

Be careful who you chat to. If a stranger adds you as a friend, ignore them and delete their request. Don't share personal information such as your address or phone number with somebody you don't know.
