  • Oral health for Students

    Published 14/11/23

    As you may be aware, dentistry is still going through a crisis in the UK and as oral health is extremely important, especially for children, we are offering everyone under 18 a chance to be seen by an NHS dentist. To improve access to NHS Dental services, we have recruited a Dental Therapist who can see patients for a Dental examination under the Direct Access Law. They are registered and skilled Dental Professionals who support Dentists, just like senior nurses and paramedics do in GP practices.

    Dental Therapists are excellent at treating children!

  • Anti-Bullying Week 2023

    Published 14/11/23

    This week is national Anti-Bullying week. As a school, we are committed to ensuring children feel safe and, should they experience bullying behaviour, they have a trusted adult they can speak to in school. We have recently been awarded the Anti-bullying alliance Silver award and hope to gain the Gold award soon.

    If you or your child have any worries, they can speak with their tutor, a member of the year team or any member of staff wearing a purple lanyard who is part of the expert team working to safeguard our students.

    All students have had an assembly this week about how to stay safe, stand up and speak out.

    Please see the poster attached for tips on how to keep your child safe online and combat online bullying which may happen out of school hours.

This is why we have decided to introduce an appendix to the behaviour and attendance policy to ensure learners are building positive behaviour and ready for the wider world.
