Keeping Your Child Safe - Joint Parents’ Information Evening on Thursday, 13 June 2019, 6pm-7pm

Keeping Your Child Safe - The Buckingham School and the Royal Latin School Joint Parents’ Information Evening on Thursday, 13 June 2019, 6pm-7pm in the Jubilee Hall at The Buckingham School. 

Young people’s safety in our community is always the most paramount consideration of both schools, alongside their education and with the current shape of society ever-changing, our young people are exposed to many external influences than ever before. In particular, two key issues have risen most recently in our community and we believe there is a strong need to inform and educate our parents and the local community on these risks.

These issues are:

The misuse of social media
County lines drug movement and Child Criminal Exploitation (CCE)

Social Media has been high profile for some time and we know that you are as concerned as we are about the new Apps young people can so readily access, along with the damaging decisions some of them make when using social media. In addition to social media, the theme of county lines drug movement is gaining pace and Buckingham is a particularly vulnerable area owing to its geographical location being on several borders, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Milton Keynes and having a big town in Aylesbury very close too.

On Thursday, 13 June 2019, we are holding a joint Parents’ Information evening to address some of these issues. It will be held in the Jubilee Hall at The Buckingham School from 6pm until 7pm. The session will be led by PC Graham Brigginshaw who has strong links in the local area and with both schools to reinforce issues related to keeping safe online, the appropriate use of social media and county lines awareness.

This Information Evening is aimed at parents, not students, as it may cover sensitive issues. We very much hope that you can join us, and believe it will be an informative evening led by both schools to help the community deal with these modern day problems.
