Dear Parents,

Post 16 transition – September 2022

The information below relates to Surrey students. If you live in a different Local Authority and have not yet been informed of their Post 16 transition arrangements, I would advise that you contact them as a matter of urgency.

On Friday Surrey communicated that it had revised the SEND Admissions arrangements for children and young people with an EHCP.  These changes will apply to those children and young people who will transfer to Year 12 in September 2021.  I have copied the link to the relevant webpage below.

https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/schools-and-learning/schools/admissions/child-with-a-ehcp-or-a-ssen

I would advise you to read this information at your earliest convenience.

It is my understanding that the SEN Team will note your preference for Post 16 as discussed and minuted at your daughter’s Year 10 Annual Review and will then make contact with you. I would strongly advise that you email the relevant caseworker and advise them of your parental preference for Post 16 for your daughter and don’t necessarily wait for them to contact you, especially if you now have a parental preference that is different to what was discussed at the Year 10 Annual Review. Currently the only named case worker that we have for the Post 14 Team is in the North East and that is Marion Rodgers. If you live in the South East, South West or North West quadrants, then I suggest you email the generic email (swsen@surreycc.gov.uk, nwsen@surreycc.gov.uk and sesen@surreycc.gov.uk) . Please copy me into any email correspondence that you send as this will enable me to follow it up, if you don’t receive a response.

I have also attached the SCC Transport Policy Statement. I need to bring to your attention that SCC transport is not automatic for Post 16 students, they have no statutory duty to provide it and where it is granted, parents are required to make a financial contribution towards the cost. The contribution is currently £252.07 per term, although some students may be eligible to be charged a lower contribution rate of £182.40 per term.

Yours sincerely, Emma Phillips

Dear Parents and Carers
 
Following recent advice from the Government about staying at home and using remote learning, more people are online than every before and that now includes school children. Here are some top tips that you can follow in order to make sure your daughter is safe: 
 
  • Talk about fake news. Discuss how to tell whether the information your daughter is reading is reliable or not. Also talk about the dangers of sharing news which may not be true. 
  • Consider how much screen time your daughter has. It is important to have down time and engage in physical exercise. 
  • Check in with your daughter when she is online to see which websites she is visiting or who she is talking to on social media.
  • Ensure your daughter only uses her school email account for communicating with teachers. 
  • Read the attached leaflet for more tips.

There are also some great activities online, which will provide fun ways of breaking up the day:

Top Tips for Remote Learning

Dear Parents and Carers

Live streaming has become a popular feature of many apps and platforms. All you need to be able to live stream is an internet-enabled device, like a smart phone or tablet, and you can communicate with people all over the world in real time. Great if you have family living overseas, but how comfortable are you with your daughter using it to chat to friends……real or online? 

If you would like to learn more about live streaming click on the following link or look at the Think U Know website.
