Engaging Parents Evening
On November 26th 2018, Bury CE High School will hosting a ‘Know the Facts’ workshop delivered by Naked Truth from 6:30 – 8:30pm. At Bury CE High School we believe it is essential that teachers and parents are aware of internet and social media misuse and based on current statistics we feel this session will touch upon prevalent topics for our young people. One UK survey found that 81% of young people look at pornography online at home with 1 in 3 first seeing sexual images before the age of 10. Furthermore, 94% out of a 1000 students said they had watched pornography before the age of 14. This workshop will give you an opportunity to ask the Naked Truth team any questions you may have but will also inform you further on the issues surrounding pornography and provide you with practical advice on how to manage explicit content in your home as well as how to have open and honest discussions with your children. You’ll also gain exclusive access to an online parents pack. Naked Truth will also be offering advice on misuse of social media. A letter will be sent home with your child on Friday 16th November. Please could you sign and return the slip if you wish to attend.

DID YOUR RELATIVE SERVE IN THE ARMED FORCES? DID THEY ATTEND BURY CHURCH OF ENGLAND HIGH SCHOOL? If so, we are looking for relatives of family members to get in touch. As 2018 marks 100 years since the end of the Great War, we are asking members of the community to come forward if your relative was a former pupil of our school. We intend to commemorate them in our Remembrance Day service on 9th November and would like to know details about when they attended our school and when they served. Relatives will be invited to attend the service. We will also be participating in the national ‘There but not There’ installation to remember the fallen of the First World War. We intend to take the names of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in this conflict off the Rolls of Honour and back into the spaces they left behind in the forms of silhouette installations in our service. For more information, please visit www.therebutnotthere.org.uk. If you would like to get in touch, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively, phone school on 0161 797 6236 and ask to speak to Mrs Stedman, Head of RE.
