Staying Safe Week
Today is the beginning of Staying Safe Week. Throughout the week, students will partake in a range of issue - based assemblies and workshops that have been flagged-up by the national crime and health agenda in keeping young people safe. The assemblies and workshops will focus on mental health and wellbeing, gang culture and serious violent crime, substance misuse, criminal and sexual exploitation of young people, fire safety and road safety. The week aims to equip all students with the knowledge and skills in order to make positive, safe and informed choices about their personal behaviour, health and well-being.
As part of this initiative, the college would like to invite you to an information evening tonight from 5:30 until 7pm in the main hall. The evening will be delivered in conjunction with colleagues from Leicestershire Police and Leicestershire NHS Trust and will offer parents/carers advice and guidance about how to recognise warning signs in relation to both behaviour and health and how to access support when needed.
The evening will also include the delivery of an interactive cyber safety workshop by Leicestershire Police which aims to equip parents and carers with the knowledge and confidence to monitor their child's cyber activity and ensure that they are maintaining good levels of online safety - regardless of their age. As always, there will also be an opportunity to talk to key members of the College about any worries or concerns that you may have.
We would appreciate it if you could confirm your attendance by contacting the college’s main office or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
