Monday 8th November
Dear Parents, Carers and Students,
Welcome to our weekly update for the tenth week of the Autumn Term 2021.
Colleagues from the NHS have been on-site on 4th, 5th and 8th November. They have completed the vaccination delivery for Y11-Y9. We have been advised that students in Y7 and Y8 must book their vaccination at a walk-in centre. Thank you to pupils for their maturity and cooperation during the vaccination period - NHS colleagues were very impressed with them.
Y11 PPEs started today:
The students have made a very good start to the exam programme, with excellent feedback on their exemplary behaviour in the exam hall.
Y9 Parents’ Evening is approaching and will be online. Please ensure that you book your appointments early with subject staff!
A reminder that all students must be off-site by 5pm for their own safety.
With best wishes for the week ahead.
In common with other Hounslow schools, we work closely with our School Liaison police officers to help keep the community safe. As part of this work, at some point in the half term the police will be bringing metal detectors into school in order to perform searches of students. A whole year group will be selected, and will be searched for any
Safeguarding Briefing: Support for Parents / Carers
The children's mental health charity, Place2Be, has launched a new website aimed at helping parents with typical situations they can find themselves in with their children.
Advice can be found on over forty topics including:
· Understanding sibling rivalryâ¯
· My child is lying, what does it mean, what should I do?
· My child has trouble going to sleep
· My child says ‘I hate you!’
· Cultural identity: who am I?
The Parenting Smart website can found here: https://parentingsmart.place2be.org.uk/
If you would like further support, guidance or information on how best to support your child’s mental health, please contact the safeguarding team firstname.lastname@example.org. The Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) has also recently introduced a helpline which may be useful as an alternative to going to A&E in a crisis situation. Please see this info for further details.
Second Contact for each child at Lampton:
We need to ensure that we can always make contact with the parents/carers of students in case of an emergency. At the moment a number of students do not have second contact details recorded in the school contact system. If you need to add a second contact or update your contact details please email Mrs Dhir who will add the details to the school system. Her email address is ADhir@lampton.org.uk
