Year 11 Prom 2017

Our School Prom was held on Thursday 29th June again at East Sussex National Hotel, when around 200 of our students enjoyed their final time all together.  The students arrived in their finery looking very glamorous - the arrivals as usual were spectacular and included vintage vans, sports cars, and a trike which was accompanied by 12 Harley Davidson motorbikes.   They then enjoyed a buffet supper and danced until 11pm with disco provided by DJ Nuno.  Photos courtesy of Reeves Photography, Lewes.

Snap Maps and Online Safety

snapSnapchat has recently introduced a new feature, Snap Maps, which allows users to share their location with other users. This has caused some controversy over child safety - for example see the Guardian article here.

If your child uses Snapchat, please have a conversation with them about their online safety and remind them that sharing location can be a risky thing to do :

1. Only share your location with people you know in person. Never share your location with strangers.
2. Don’t add contacts to Snapchat if you don’t know them in person.
3. Regularly review your settings and take an active decision about whether you want people to know your location.
4. Remember you can switch this off at any time.
5. Think about where you’re sharing your location. Location services such as Snap Map can lead people to your house. Think about what times you’re on the app and whether these are locations you want to share – if not, then turn this off within your settings.


Please go through the Snap Map settings with your child - we recommend Ghost Mode which ensures they have complete control over who knows their location.

You can find more information about Snap Map in this Childnet article.

New Cashless Catering System - Update

eatingESCC and Chartwells recently carried out a hardware and software upgrade to the cashless catering system used in our Canteen. There have been a few teething problems beyond our control but these are now either solved or will be very shortly. Thank you for your patience and if you experience any issues with ParentPay please call 01273 476231 x322 in the normal way.

 

 

School Uniform

As there are no heatwave conditions forecast, students are once again expected to wear their school ties. Since it is still quite stuffy in a number of classrooms, students are not being expected to bring / wear their blazers.  Should there be any change to the forecast we will review these expectations and alert families via messages in school, our website, tweets and email.
