With Christmas fast approaching, it is important that students are reminded what we, as a school community, expect of them in terms of behaviour during the festive break from school.  This letter has been written in partnership with West Midlands Police.

We hope that students enjoy socialising with friends and family over the festive period but we also want to ensure they feel confident to keep themselves safe and away from danger, crime and anti-social behaviour.
