Easter Holiday Club

Dear Parent/Carer

Re: Parental Expression of Interest - Easter Holiday Club

We are exploring the opportunity to provide an Easter Holiday Club at the New Leaf Centre for pupils on the 12th,13th and 14th April 2022. Pupils will partake in a range of fun activities on school site and we are hoping to arrange an off-site activity day on the 14th April.

The New Leaf Centre will cover the whole cost the holiday club, including meals and activities.

If this is something that may be of interest to you a letter with an expression of interest slip at the bottom is also being sent out by post. Please complete this slip and return it to school or contact the school office on 01922 716900.

Free Online Safety Guide - Snap Chat

What parents and carers need to know about Snapchat

When Snapchat’s number of active users plateaued at around the 180 million mark for the majority of 2018, many observers surmised that the platform had become ‘old hat’ in the eyes of its younger fan-base. A continuous (and lockdown-abetted) recovery since then, however, has proved that reports of the app’s demise had been greatly exaggerated.

Snapchat’s willingness to move with the times, strategically adding new features such as Spotlight and Snap Map, has kept it relevant and appealing. Each fresh tweak, however, provides potential scope for new harms – whether deliberately or accidentally inflicted. This week’s #WakeUpWednesday guide focuses its discerning lens onto Snapchat.
