Message from Suffolk Police

This is a message from Suffolk Police:

We have received information from Suffolk Police regarding social media accounts on both ‘Instagram’ and ‘Snapchat’ that are actively seeking young people to follow them to gain access to a video.  The video contains footage of an extremely inappropriate nature involving young children.  This of course holds legal complications should anyone open the link, send it on or store the data on any devices.

The accounts concerned are set up using different spellings and formats.  However the main link is ‘tanya kellock’ or ‘tanya k’ and has an image of a young girl with blonde and brown hair depending on the account.  Police advice is for students not to accept any friend requests from or correspond with these accounts and to delete the material immediately should this be on any device.

Please rest assure the police are actively working to take this material down as soon as possible and any students or parents/careers requiring advice should speak to our pastoral team at school in the first instance.

Subject consultation meeting for Y7 students, parents/carers – Thursday 14th December 2017

The booking system is available here.

Individual teacher consultation appointments will take place 4:30-7.30pm. Subject teachers will meet with you and your child on an individual basis to provide clear feedback on your child’s learning. You will also have an opportunity to review your child’s exercise books.

All meetings will take place in the school hall. Booking will be on a first come, first served basis and the booking system is now open. The number of appointments will, initially, be limited to five for each student to ensure that all parents/carers are able to participate. Nearer to the time, if additional appointments are available, we will release these into the booking system and notify you.

In order to login to the system, you will need the following information relating to your child, as held in our database:

  • Child’s first name
  • Child’s surname
  • Child’s date of birth
  • Child’s register class  (in the form of e.g. 7-1)

You will need to enter the details we have on record for you. If you have recently changed your title or surname, for example, and not informed us, we will be expecting you to login with the details we have on record. The email address you enter is only used to receive a confirmation of your appointment. If the system gives you an error when you login, it will not be the email address that is the problem.

If you do not have access to the Internet, or experience any problems with using the system, please contact the school and ask to speak with Miss Ring.

Students are required to attend, with their parent/carer.
