Welcome parents and students, to the start of a new academic year here at Parrs Wood; we hope you have a had a restful summer. For all students starting back to school or embarking on their new secondary school experience, it can be both exciting and worrying. New uniform, equipment, classes and teachers all add to that buzz you get on the first day back!
We have also seen our amazing year 11’s collecting their GCSE results and they too are getting ready to begin the next chapter in their lives, college! While some will be pleased with the results they got, others may have struggled with their exams due to different issues and will be feeling nervous about the future. There is a link for those who need some advice and guidance leading up to their college start dates.
To help all students combat those feelings of apprehension and worry, please find below some useful information for parents, new year 7’s, existing students moving into their next year group and of course, our school leavers who are starting college soon as well. We look forward to seeing you all next week and if you have any questions, please use the school website for contact details.

Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm. Safeguarding means:
Protecting children from maltreatment and preventing impairment of children’s health or development is necessary, but not sufficient to ensure that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care. These aspects of safeguarding and promoting welfare are cumulative and all contribute to the five outcomes that are key to children and young people's wellbeing, namely:
Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.
Safeguarding children and child protection guidance and legislation applies to all children up to the age of 18.
At Parrs Wood High School and Sixth Form we recruit experienced members of staff to enhance our safeguarding and child protection at all times. Keeping our students safe is our main priority, which is why we work closely with parents and our safeguarding and child protection team to ensure our students remain on the right path towards to achieve their full potential in education.
For further information on how we carry our safeguarding and child protection in our school and sixth form please don't hesitate in contacting us.
