JBVI Summer Homework

Summer homework for all Year 11 and Year 12 level 2 students returning to the sixth form in September has been shared with students via Google Drive. Students should complete the work ready to return on Wednesday 4th September 2019.

Alan Hardie and John Brearley, CEO and Chair of Trustees, today met with Damian Hinds as part of a roundtable discussion to advise the Education Secretary how the government’s recent initiative, Opportunity North East, was impacting on schools.

The Education Secretary has invested £24M to support improvements in raising the achievement and aspirations of young people in secondary education.

Duke’s Secondary School has been designated as a One Vision School as part of the Opportunity North East programme.

New ‘challenge’ circulating on social media

Dear Parents

We are aware of a new ‘challenge’ circulating on social media, rather than raising the profile of this by naming it, advice from the Police to parents is to:

  • Ensure they know what their children can access online
  • Ensure children understand the importance of not giving personal information to anyone they do not know
  • Tell their children no-one has the right to make them do anything they do not want to do
  • Use parental controls to keep children safe

Further advice can be found on our E-Safety web pages, if you require any additional support please contact your child’s school or email learnerwelfare@ncea.org.uk
