Dear Parents and Carers
Year 9 will be attending a Knife Crime awareness session on either Monday 9th May and Tuesday 10th May for one hour. The students will attend as a form, so that students can follow up in LC time after having received exactly the same age-appropriate experience. The aim of the Knife crime session is to raise awareness of the statistics of knife crime, support students in understanding the law surrounding carrying, using or even being aware that someone has a knife and intends to use it. The sessions are delivered by trained staff from the Youth Offending Service. The Police service are represented, and we hope to have a surgeon from a Manchester hospital. The sessions are, as I state, age appropriate, but are also hard hitting. The team who deliver, have worked in some local primary settings but the sessions are still relevant to students who have attended before.
Unfortunately, the issue of knives in the community both nationally and locally is one of concern. Education and awareness is a key tool to support our young people make the correct life choices. This is a session we have run before, and are part of a one year programme to ensure all students in the school receive the experience. If you or your family have been affected by knife crime and feel your son or daughter may be affected by the session then please contact and discuss this with your Director of College.

Last Tuesday, I was delighted to invite 20 students to the reward ‘Pizza Parlour’ afternoon with myself and the Headteacher. The celebration afternoon was to recognise the hard work of the students in attendance who were in the top ten for their year group for Super Curriculum Points awarded last term. A big congratulations to all students involved, and also to James Taylor in Year 8 who achieved his Apprentice level (PDCP)Personal Development Challenge Portfolio badge and certificate. A great afternoon was enjoyed by all.
