Level Trust Charity Partnership

The Meads have been working in partnership with The Level Trust Charity to promote the great work that they do. Level Trust helps families across Luton to access school uniform, summer schemes and to learn at home. Some of our students, Miss. Stack and Miss. Ansell went to visit Level Trust's Uniform Exchange shop this week to celebrate their launch! The uniform exchange is open to all parents who can exchange their old/unwanted uniform in exchange for uniform in a different size or for a new school. The students enjoyed speaking to a BBC news team and a Team GB boxer, Jordan Reynolds.

Photography and Filming

Guidelines for parents who wish to photograph or film their child's participation at school events

'Use your camera or phone in keeping with our school values of respect, courtesy and responsibility'

We understand that as parents you like to film /photograph your children.  In the vast majority of cases, photography and filming of events such as sports days, nativities and school plays are a source of innocent pleasure and pride for families, that can enhance self-esteem for children and provide a lasting reminder of their participation and success.  However we have a duty of care to safeguard your children. By following some simple guidelines the school and parents can work together to ensure that children are protected, school safeguarding policies are adhered to and the law is complied with.

e-Safety

Information and communications technology (ICT) is part of our lives. We use it every day for study, work, entertainment, shopping and getting in touch with our family and friends. It is one of the quickest and easiest ways of finding information, sharing idea and working with other people.

And like everything, it has to be used safely and responsibly. As well as opportunities, there are also risks that we need to be aware of and guard against. As children get older they spend more and more of their waking hours connected to digital devices—impacting their reputations, learning opportunities, and futures.

This area is designed to provide you with information and links to a variety of different websites to help you understand the benefits and the risks.
