Information for Parents

At The Transforming Lives Educational Trust (TLET) we are proud to work in partnership with parents and carers across our academies.

We believe that an effective “learning partnership” is important to secure the best outcomes for our pupils.

The learning partnership includes you, the parent/carer, the pupils and the staff at the academy.

We look forward to working in partnership with you in the coming years so that your child or young person is able to achieve, be happy and prepare for the next stage of education and life.

Here you can find out more information for parents of current pupils, or those looking to join our schools in the future.

Parent and Carer Toolkit for Online Safety

Childnet have updated their parent and carer toolkit that will help parents have conversations about online safety. Their booklet ‘Let’s talk about life online’ includes ten key messages that should be shared with children:

1. “You can always come to me if you need help.”
2. “What would you do if this happened…?”
3. “Remember that not everyone is who they say they are online.”
4. “Keep your personal information safe, and other people’s too.”
5. “Be respectful to others online.”
6. “Think before you post.”
7. “Remember to ask if it’s okay.”
8. “Remember not everything is true online.”
9. “The things other people post online might not always show what their life is really like.”
10. “Recognise how going online makes you feel and take a break when you need to.”

Tackling criminal exploitation (Children’s Society)

The Children’s Society, along with many other organisations, are working to disrupt the activity of criminal gangs and keep young people safer. They work with the police to stop county lines activity and recognise the young people that have been exploited by criminal gangs as victims, not criminals.

The Children’s Society has developed resources for parents and professionals if they are worried a young person is involved in county lines.
