15/1/23 Roundup – Key messages & Term dates (all year groups)

Urgent safeguarding reminder

I appreciate this was shared earlier in the week but with the safety of our young people being so important I will keep reminding. Please read, share and get in touch if you need any support.

Safeguarding: “A Game” – Warning to Parents

It has come to our attention that there is “A game” being circulated via Facebook to children which contains several different actions for them to complete, including the encouragement of self-harm and hurting others.

Whilst many of our children will, I am sure, be confident in ignoring these messages, we are conscious that around the country there have been several incidents where dares via social media have led to child fatalities.

Please be vigilant around your child’s use of social media and if you have concerns, advice can be sought from the following platforms or contact the safeguarding team and school.

Year 9 Parents evening

This will be held in school on Thursday 19th January 2023. Bookings opened up on 6th January and will close on 16th January.

We look forward to seeing you all then.

Year 9 Workshop – Studying with the brain in mind

On the 24th January all Y9 and 10 students will be taking part in a one hour workshop entitled ‘studying with the brain in mind’. This session is run by Inner Drive and designed to give students a better understanding of how to get the best from their brain and effective ways to revise.  Many Y11 students found this session useful and so we wanted to share this opportunity with all students.

Event – Future Intentions Careers Fair

On Thursday 26th January we are hosting our Future Intentions Careers Fair in the sports hall between 6.00pm – 8.00pm.

The event is suitable for all students from Years 7 to 13 and all Yr 7 and Yr 8 students from the three middle schools have received a flyer inviting them to the event.

We currently have over 50 exhibitors invited including John Taylor Teaching School, Nottingham University, RAF, Keele University, JCB, Francesco Hairdressing, DBC Training any many more….

This evening offers a fantastic opportunity for students and parents to find out more about not only Thomas Alleyne’s High School but all aspects of Future Intentions.
