Useful E-Safety Tips For Parents

Get to grips with what they may come across on the internet and how to get help if you need it. Also find out what to do if you’re worried about anything you or your child has seen online.

As children between the ages of 11 and 13 make the transition to a more independent stage with the move to secondary school, they become more confident internet users with more varied habits. Internet use can be hugely positive for children, but it’s vital to continue discussing online safety with them.

As your child becomes a teenager, it’s likely the internet will be a part of their daily life. They’ll adapt quickly to new technology and use it to communicate, socialise and create. Most teenagers have access to the internet using a smartphone or tablet, and use a wide range of social networking sites as a vital part of their relationships with others.

Spelling Bee Stars

On Thursday 14th February 2019 our year 7 Spelling Bee class winners took part in the school competition in which they had to translate and spell as many words in Spanish in one minute in front of peers and some parents.
At the start of the week students struggled to spell hardly any of the words and with lots of encouragement and practise at breaks and after school and all I can say is they have really pulled it out of the hat!!! They did exceptionally well and all gave it a really great go. Their determination to turn it around has amazed us!
Our top three winners will now go onto represent the school at Sheffield Hallam University in April.
Well done to everyone who took part, excellent work by all!

UNIfied Trip To Sheffield

On Monday the 4th of February 24 year 10’s had the chance to attend an educational trip in Sheffield. The trip named UNIfied was a collaborative day between The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University, run through HeppSY+.  During the day students had the opportunity to build confidence, negotiation and communication skills along with information about Higher Education within a University institute. The students were really enthused throughout the whole day and showed great confidence in their own ability to progress onto not only further education, but higher education.
