Dear Parents/Carers of Surrey students,

Please find attached the new Surrey SEND Travel Assistance leaflet. I have also been asked to share the information below from SCC.

Independent Travel Training

Surrey County Council is working with HCT Group to offer support to young people with SEND by providing travel training, to enable them to travel independently to and from school, as well as more widely. This is a wonderful opportunity to receive tailored one to one training and practical assistance to build confidence and independence to travel safely and without anxiety on public transport.The HCT Group has tested travel training programmes with other local authorities in Leeds, Norfolk and the London boroughs of Lambeth and Camden, having trained around 500 people over the last 5 years. You can read about some of their stories and case studies, and there is a BBC short film which gives a flavour of how it works

If you would like any further information please contact the SEND travel assistance team: Tel: 0300 200 1004.

Yours sincerely,
Emma Phillips
Deputy Headteacher

Dear Parents and Carers,

BTEC Firsts Information and Creative Technology Level 1/2

All students in Year 10 have already started studying the above course.

The course is split into 4 different units with Unit 1 being assessed by an online test taken in Year 11. We have been covering the theory for this test in lessons and I have also been setting homework to consolidate this information.

I would strongly recommend that you purchase a copy of the revision guide for this course as this will make it easier for your daughter to complete her homework and revise for the test.

The book can be bought through school will be £4.00 per copy (£2.00 cheaper than on Amazon!). Please can you pay through Parent Pay before Friday 24th November.

Best wishes

Sam Janaway

The following was sent out on 14th September 2017:

Dear Parents, Carers and Families,

I wanted to share information with you about Net Aware.

Net Aware is a simple guide for parents to the most popular social networks, apps and games.  You can learn about the privacy settings and safety guidelines for Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and more.  You can also read up-to-date reviews from parents and children for each app, game and social network.

The guide, which is aimed at parents and carers of 8-12 year olds, is based on over 750 reviews from an O2/NSPCC parent panel and over 1720 young people who reviewed 50 social networks and apps.

It aims to provide parents with up-to-date information about the sites most commonly used by young people.  The NSCPCC hope the guides will help parents talk to their children about staying safe on those platforms.

Features include:

  • minimum age for the most popular apps
  • possible dangers
  • why children like it
  • how easy it is to report inappropriate content
  • how easy it is to change the privacy setting
  • general online safety news stories

I hope that you find this website useful.

Kind regards
Mrs Wild

Safeguarding Issue

Please read and share

“Snapchat map update raises child safety worries”

Recently Snapchat, an app which is sued by many children and young people, launched a new feature. Snap Maps allows users to see the location of their contacts. This feature allows other to accurately pinpoint where you are. There are three possible privacy settings:

  • Ghost mode, where only you can see your position
  • My Friends mode,  where any contact can see your location; and
  • Select Friends mode, just those who you choose can see you

Childnet have posted a thorough explanation of Snap Maps and how to ensure users stay safe

  Introducing ‘Snap Maps’ – the new location sharing feature …

Today Snapchat introduced a new feature, the ‘Snap Map’. This location based map allows users to see where in the country their Snapchat contacts are, as well as …

How to switch off Snap Map location sharing:

  • When in photo taking mode, pinch the screen to open Snap Map
  • Touch the settings cog in the top right corner of the screen
  • Tap “Ghost Mode” to switch off location sharing
  • Photos and videos posted to Snapchat’s public “Our Story” will still be discoverable on the map

Dear Parents, Carers and Families,

I would like to update you regarding our procedures for contacting the school about medication.

Please note that all medication sent into school must be in its original packaging with a current and correct prescription label. It is your duty to inform Jennie Flint (Deputy Head of the Residential Provision) of your intention to send medication in to school by email at and to copy Miss Phillips, Deputy Head ( into your correspondence.

This change has occurred as Sarah Taylor, our Residential Keyworker with responsibility for Health and Wellbeing, has moved on to pursue other interests. We wish Sarah luck for her future endeavours.

If you have any questions regarding this matter please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Mrs Wild

School Uniform Labelling

The following was Parentmailed on 22nd September 2016:

Good afternoon everyone,

Please ensure all items of your daughter’s clothing (jumpers, coats, cardigans, PE kit etc) are clearly labelled with her full name.
Unfortunately if clothing isn’t labelled we have no way of knowing who it belongs to and therefore we cannot return it to its rightful owner.
We would appreciate your co-operation in this matter.
