Parent Info

 

Parent Info is a collaboration between CEOP and The Parent Zone. 

The Parent Zone was founded in 2005 and has a track record of providing information, support and advice to parents. In recent years, The Parent Zone's work has focused on the impact of digital technologies on families. They provide information, resources and training for parents and those who work with them. 

CEOP is the child protection command of the National Crime Agency. CEOP reaches over three million children and young people a year through its Thinkuknow education programme and regularly conveys its vital online safety messages to over 100,000 practitioners (such as social workers, teachers and police officers) registered to their network, who cascade these messages directly to children and young people.

What is Parent Info?

Parent Info provides high quality information to parents and carers about their children's wellbeing and resilience. Schools can host the content on their own website and use it in any other ways (for example; in letters to parents etc) that they want.

This service is free and ranges across a wide range of subject matter, from difficult topics about sex, relationships and the internet or body image and peer pressure to broader parenting topics like ‘how much sleep do teenagers need?’

In line with CEOP’s Thinkuknow programme, some of the content covers internet safety, but it all starts from the assumption that young people make little distinction between their online and offline lives and the issues for parents are often the same. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.

You will be part of a warm and friendly school community offering all the support you need to help you feel at home and to achieve your personal best in school.

Results 2017

The wait was finally over for our Year 11 students when they received their GCSE exam results in August. They were the first cohort of students taking the new exams which are designed to be more challenging. Of our 120 students 65% achieved a grade 4-9 in both Maths and one of their English GCSEs; the grade 4 is equivalent to grade C in other subjects.  24% of our students achieved passes at grade C or 5 in their EBacc subjects. We had many strong performances in individual subjects including: Drama, Spanish, Science, PE and Food and Nutrition.
