External Communications for Parents/Carers and School Community
This section of the school website is for external communication that school receives and asked to be passed on to parents. The purpose of this is to minimise the amount of emails that come from school directly to parents.
Links to these communications will be added to the weekly school newsletter on a Friday. We hope by doing this that it helps with communication, which is what came up from the communication survey we did the end of the summer term 2022.
Home-Start Cambridgeshire supports families across Cambridgeshire through their fantastic team of home visiting volunteers. These volunteers come from a variety of different backgrounds but all have parenting experience, they are vital to the work of Home-Start.
Home Start are currently looking to recruit new volunteers across all areas of the county. The volunteer preparation course is running again in March, see the poster below. The benefits of volunteering for Home-Start are numerous but they offer ongoing training and support and the opportunity to make a difference to local families.

Message from Cambridgeshire Constabulary - Young People and Community Partnerships
Hi to all
We wanted to take this opportunity to update you about some recent departmental changes that have resulted in the disassembling of the children and young people officers and that as of now their role no longer exists.
Instead, Cambridgeshire Constabulary have invested in additional safer schools’ officers who will be present and active within their designated schools. This will be a bespoke and varied role, however, ultimately their aim is to ensure that young people have trust and confidence in the police through targeted activity and engagement.
The Safer Schools Officers will also be taking on the responsibility of producing the school’s newsletter, however, it will no longer be produced monthly. Instead, you should expect to receive one at the beginning of each term. Therefore, the newsletter that was dispatched last week should be considered as this term’s edition, and you can expect to receive another one in at the beginning of January 2024.
If you have enjoyed reading the previous newsletters, we hope that you continue to find them useful and informative.
Many thanks and kind regards,
Karen and Clare
Former CYP officers.
School Preference Adviser for Cambridgeshire
Cambridgeshire have recently appointed a Parents' School Preference Adviser for Cambridgeshire, as part of the SENDIASS team.
The service offers families advice and support when applying for schools, either when admissions open for transition on the 11th September 2023 or for in-year applications. They are able to advise how the transfer and admissions process works, as well as supporting the understanding of policies and criteria for different schools. Also, they can support in the appeals process and issues concerning transport.
