Information for Parents
Please be aware that new app that has surfaced called “Yellow”. It interacts with Snapchat and is like Tinder for Snapchat, with no age restrictions. The NSPCC are worried about it as it opens the doors to a lot of predatory behaviours due to the amount of children that use Snapchat. Here is an article from the Telegraph about it : http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/11/21/rspcc-warning-over-tinder-like-app-for-teenagers/
Welcome to the Parents area of the College website. Please use the links down the left hand side to find information to support your partnership with the school. The website remains in development and we would welcome any comments or suggestions about other information you would like to see included that will support parents in working with the College.
If you are a current parent, please direct queries about your child’s learning, well-being and wider school participation to your child’s Head of House in the first instance. Their details can be found via Houses and then clicking on your child’s house name on the left. This helps to ensure that Heads of House are fully informed about all matters relating to your child. They can then either gather information from relevant colleagues or put you in touch directly with other members of staff as appropriate.
For specific data on your child's attendance, progress, credits and other matters, please use Go4Schools, accessible via Online Services for Parents.
Ofsted operates a facility called ParentView for parents to share their views on the provision offered by schools. We would encourage you, please, to take a moment to register on the site and provide your comments about the College.
Sawston Village College Safeguarding Statement for Parents
The College is committed to safeguarding young people. It achieves this through high quality pastoral care; a PSHE programme that provides appropriate guidance on being safe as a young adult; signposting to agencies and adults who can provide support; being vigilant for signs that a young person may be experiencing difficulties that may require further help and support.
There are occasions when either the Designated Personnel for Child Protection, Senior Leadership Team or the Head of House may be required to discuss concerns with parents that may be related to safeguarding and child protection. The College has a legal requirement to ensure the safety of all its pupils and communication between the College and parents is a key part of this process.
