How to Set Up Parental Controls for iPhone Apps

A free online safety guide on how to set up parental controls for iPhone apps.

Most smartphones allow parents and carers to choose which apps and features appear on their child’s device and which ones don’t – also preventing young people from buying and downloading anything that’s unsuitable for their age. The #WakeUpWednesday guides to parental controls for managing apps on iPhones will help you to reduce the chance of your child using a game or app that might not be appropriate for their age.

In the guide, you will find tips on a number of tips such as how to restrict built-in apps, the game centre and app store purchases.

European Day of Languages – 26 September

The European Day of Languages is celebrated across Europe on 26 September every year. It aims to promote the rich linguistic diversity of Europe and raise awareness of the importance of lifelong language learning for everyone.
At Oxted we will be celebrating the day throughout the following week.  Students will explore other European languages in their tutor time sessions and normal language lessons. 
We are also holding a t-shirt designing competition which will be entered to the European Centre of Modern Languages.  Students should design a European themed t-shirt about different countries and cultures and submit it to their language teacher by Friday 5 November.  The best designs will receive a prize and they could even become real printed designs as well.

 

 

Daniel Spargo Mobbs Foundation

Last Tuesday, the Daniel Spargo Mobbs foundation held a Drugs Awareness webinar for parents of Oxted School.  This was led by the Director and Founder of the charity, Fiona Spargo-Mabbs and drugs educator Asha Fowells.

The workshop shared invaluable advice on issues faced children, and what we can do as carers to keep them self.  We would like to thank the parents who attended for their support and participation in the workshop. 

Fiona has very kindly shared with us the recording of the workshop for those parents who were unable to attend as well as a Parent Handout with very useful and important information for parents.   

For the parents that attended, we ask for your help to complete a post webinar survey, this helps to inform Fiona and her team to develop their work further. 

The DSM foundation is a charity funded and is always grateful for donations https://www.dsmfoundation.org.uk/donate/

 

 

 

Barn Theatre Car Park

Parents are reminded that they should not be parking in the Barn Theatre car park to drop off or pick up students.   The Barn Theatre is a private car park and permit holders are allowed to park there.

 

Drop Off and Pick Up from School - Safety of our Students

For the safety of our students, parents are reminded they should not drive on to the school site to drop off or pick up students.  Only parents with agreed permission will be able to come on to site at this time.

There are now three disabled parking spaces at the front of school for visitors to the school and for parents to drop off and pick up our less able students.  Bluehouse Lane has parking restrictions, and these should be adhered to.

Thank you for your support in ensuring our students are safe on their way to and from school.

Home / School Communication

School life is very busy, and we are not always able to reply to emails straight away. However, we will aim to respond to your email within 2 working days. 

Parent meetings with staff are by appointment only, and normally require 2 working days’ notice. If you wish to speak to a member of staff, in person, please contact them directly to book an appointment. 

Our staff work very hard, and it is important that they are allowed to have a personal life as well. We are encouraging staff to try and have a better work/life balance. Therefore, please be aware that they are unlikely to look at emails before 7.30am and after 6.00pm during the week, and not at all at weekends or during holidays. 

If you have a concern, it is always best to go to the Head of Department or the Head of Faculty rather than directly to the teacher. The concern can then be investigated and resolved for you. 

Please copy our Communications Officer Mrs Kent (claire.kent@oxted.thpt.org.uk) into the emails that you send. This helps us to have an overview of what is happening across the school.
