Parents in Partnership Meetings

Working together with families is crucial to the success of our work at Norbury.  We hold 'Parents in Partnership' meetings to share key messages with parents about the work of our school, school development, priorities and initiatives.

We hold regular 'Parents in Partnership' meetings for parents and share key information via our school dojo story for those unable to attend.

SEND at QEGS

 

 

In June 2023, parents of children with special educational needs and disabilities from across the school (SEND) were invited to a session with Mr Steve Bembridge, the Special Needs Co-ordinator from Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School.  

Those of you that were unable to attend the session can find information about support for children with special educational needs here -https://www.queenelizabeths.derbyshire.sch.uk/learning/sen

Mr Bembridge has kindly offered answer any individual queries or to meet with families by prior arrangement. He can be contacted by email at bembridge@queenelizabeths.derbyshire.sch.uk

Online Safety 

 

 

 On Safer Internet Day, February 2023, we met to share key messages around online safety.  We were supported by our IT techinican, James Hartle, and families were given the opportunity to ask their own questions about supporting online safety at home.  Many thanks to those families who attended.

This presentation was shared with families:

 Some parents requested additional material to support key messages with their child at home.  We recommend the resources freely available here at https://www.internetmatters.org/digital-matters/modules/?user_type=parent 

You can choose topics to discuss from online bullying, how to present yourself online, online relationships and privacy and security.

There are further resources available on the link below to help parents have more regular conversations with their children about online safety.

As always, please do get in touch with a member of school staff if you have any concerns about your child's behaviour or interactions online.
