Dear parents and carers,
Child staying over and in your care – Who knows where they are?
Children are among the most vulnerable members of society and this is intensified when they are unaccounted for and potentially missing. As adults, we have a moral and legal obligation to safeguard them. The Metropolitan police are therefore seeking your assistance to enable the whereabouts of children to be known to those responsible for their care, especially when sleeping away from their usual home address.
Congratulations to Rachael Chyke for her successful performance for Jack Petchey’s “Speak Out” Challenge at St Anne’s Catholic High School. Despite being one of the last contestants to perform, Rachael’s passionate, articulate and inspiring speech “What colour do you see?” energised the entire audience and thoroughly impressed the judges. Rachael came second out of fifteen for the Regional Final – a fantastic achievement!
We are delighted to inform you of a new addition to our programme
starting Thursday 7th March.
We are in the process of setting up a Dance club focusing on Street Dance that will run after school on Thursday’s 3:45 – 4:35pm. This will be FREE and open to all students who can commit to every session. PE kit is required. The aim is for the group to choreograph a performance at the end of the 12 week block. If your child is interested in this they must see Ms Ali (Science) and register their interest. We only have space for 20 students and the start date is Thursday 7th March 2019.

This term we had a visit from Reggie Yates during the Rhema Arts Music & Poetry Workshop.
This funding will allow Rhema Art’s to continue working with us & other schools delivering Creative Arts workshops.
Dear Parents/ Carers,#
Last Tuesday 5th February 2019 was Safer Internet Day and throughout the week we encouraged our students to engage with the advice and support offered by ‘UK Safer Internet Centre’ and ‘ThinkUKnow’ (Child Exploitation Online Protection).
These organisations also provide advice and support for parents and carers in terms of safer internet use and greater awareness of safety when using social media. Their websites provide excellent information and activities for parents which are very easy to access and use.
The main theme of 2019’s Safer Internet Day was consent in the digital world and therefore an opportunity for parents and carers to offer support in how young people tackle digital consent within relationships and friendships as well as how online services use the data we provide.
The ‘ThinkUKnow’ website provides sound advice on how to notice and deal with a range of issues such as exploitation, inappropriate image sharing and online safety. We highly recommend that parents and carers engage with this information and use it with their children.
Please also feel free to contact the school if you would like any further information regarding safer internet use.
Mr G Lyle,
