Summer Bedding & Hanging Plants

Once again we’d like to give parents the opportunity of ordering summer bedding plants and hanging baskets. Orders and payment need to be returned to school by Friday 5th April 2019  and plants will be available for collection from the school allotment on Friday 24th May 2019.

All funds raised from the sale of these plants goes towards the support of projects in school. Click here to download the 2019 bedding plant & hanging basket list.

Parental Information – Drug Awareness & Advice

Thank you to all those of you who came to the drugs information evening this week. We had over 170 parents in attendance and hope you found the evening worthwhile.

A few of you left notes asking for certain information (for example, a ‘crib sheet’ with slang terms used by young people for different drugs) or additional questions to be answered, and we will post this information as soon as we can. In the meantime:

Momo Challenge

Dear Parents/Carers,

You may have heard of the Momo Challenge which has reportedly been appearing in children’s Youtube videos, causing panic and upset amongst young people and parents.

Police have appealed to parents to not simply focus on Momo, urging them to:

  • Ensure they know what their children can access online
  • Ensure children understand the importance of not giving personal information to anyone they do not know
  • Tell their children no-one has the right to make them do anything they do not want to do
  • Use parental controls to keep their children safe

At school we will continue to support children and teach them about the importance of staying safe online

If you need any support with this, please contact Student Services and ask to speak with Mrs Ball.

What parents need to know about The Momo Challenge

Parent Information Evening

An opportunity to ask questions, dispel myths, and discover how best to support young people by raising your awareness around drugs and substance abuse.

We invite you to a Parental Information Evening led by the Warrington Young Persons Drug and Alcohol Service on:

TUESDAY 5TH MARCH 2019

Where you can access the most up to date information regarding young people’s use of drugs and the specific patterns in our local area.

Start at 6pm with refreshments and a chance to browse some information and a selection of interactive resources, with the main presentation beginning at 6.30pm in the hall.

The evening is aimed especially at parents of students in Years 9, 10, 11 and the Sixth Form but everybody is welcome.

Warrington Young Persons Drug and Alcohol Service offers specialist support to young people age 13-19yrs experiencing drug and / or alcohol misuse. Youth Workers are trained to deliver person centred treatment. These evidence based approaches respond to the frequent changes in young people’s drug and alcohol use. Youth workers use bespoke 1-1 interventions to strengthen young people’s resilience to substance misuse developing positive relationships with young people to explore substance misuse and focus on recovery.

We cannot recommend this evening strongly enough and urge every parent to come along.

After-School Detentions

Dear Parents/Carers,

From Monday 4th March we will be changing the method by which we let you know if your child has an after-school detention. You will receive a text message on the afternoon of the day before to let you know that your child has an after-school detention the next day.

After school detentions run until 4pm or 4:45pm if a student has failed to attend the first one. Schools do not need to seek parental consent for after-school detentions but we would ask for your continued support in ensuring your child follows the behaviour policy in school and attends their detention if they receive one. Many thanks.
