Safeguarding Update:

It has been brought to the schools attention by the police that there is potentially a new E-Safety threat to students. There is a new computer game called Cunch-Line Chronicles.

The game is centred around County Lines, giving out information about drug running and creating trap houses, it teaches how to set these up and recruit. There is also an online chat facility in the game. There are vulnerability issues here for recruitment, so please be vigilant and report any concerns to the school.

Parents Evening:

The school has introduced a new and easy to use online appointment booking system.
