To achieve our Bronze Award we have demonstrated that we support young carers in many ways, including homework clubs and drop-in sessions with a member of staff who is responsible for this vulnerable group of pupils. Vital information about how to identify young carers is made available to all school staff, and noticeboards and the school webpage let students and their families know where to go for help.
A huge thanks to Mr Belardini for all his hard work and dedication to the education of our young careres and for achieving this award for our school.
In return we ask that each child brings into school gifts for our secrets room:
If you think your child would buy a gift for their siblings then please do bring a sibling gift in so that children are not disappointed on the day.
Examples of donations:
Female gifts: toiletries, makeup, nail polish, jewellery, scarves, and candles
Male gifts: toiletries, biscuits, socks, stationary
Sibling gifts: Toys, stickers, games, children’s jewellery
Please note we cannot accept CD’s or DVDs a we are unable to check the content.
We also cannot accept alcohol as we are unable to sell this to the children.
Many of our children will be spending time online this Christmas, and some will be fortunate enough to receive gifts of new devices or games. We encourage the positive use of technology and understand its role in fun and learning – at school and at home. But there are risks to all online activity, so we would like to tell you about an opportunity to find out more.
The event will be run by experts in the DigiSafe team at LGfL and will also feature a special guest from the game Roblox which many of our pupils play.
We encourage you to attend this event from the comfort of your home before you wrap up those shiny new devices or games – it’s a lot less stressful to change settings before Christmas morning – or before your children start the holidays and want to spend time online.
Please also remember before buying Christmas presents that games have age ratings linked to their content, not their difficulty (games are rated 18 for the same reasons as films - inappropriate language, sex and violence).
There are plenty of great reasons to make technology part of your Christmas, so remember to talk about positives with your child – one great way to find out what they do online and also have fun together is to ask them to show you what they do and to teach you to play their games
