INFORMATION FOR PARENTS
PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION
We are extremely fortunate at South Lee to have a wonderful Parent Teacher Association team who organise events for students, parents and staff. Events vary annually and have included Bingo Nights, discos, coffee mornings, dog walks, fun runs and the Christmas Fair.
The PTA raise funds for the school, focusing recently on projects such as rennovating the playground and purchasing new STEM equipment. They also organise events and activities to collect money and donations for national and local charities.
There is a PTA representative for each year who organises support within the year group for any events. Parents who wish to be involved as a member of the PTA committee or help at events are asked to contact the PTA chair.
INTERNET SAFETY - BECOMING CONFIDENT DIGITAL CITIZENS
At South Lee School, we are very committed that in this age of technology our students should become confident digital citizens.
That means when using the Internet, they should know how to keep safe and how to respond to any communication or situation they encounter. Our goal, is that our students are aware of the great potential of the Internet in terms of their learning and ability to carry out research, and the possibilities to be creative. But, that they are also aware of how to react to any risks and how to ask for help. Current guidance encourages teachers and parents to promote a dialogue with their children to clarify best online practices. Also, this dialogue should start from the point when they begin to use computers.
There is a wealth of excellent information and resources online to support teachers and students, but also parents. Guidance can be found on a range of issues including cyberbullying, social networking, reporting, parental controls and downloading, as well as many other topics. There is even help on how to go about buying a mobile phone or other items of technology. As a school, we would actively encourage to you to visit the below websites to find out more.
