Abbeyfield students take part in community litter pick

On Wednesday 13 June,  environment- conscious students from the Abbeyfield Community Project Team joined forces with Tesco, Northampton and East Hunsbury Parish Council for a community litter pick.

A total of 9 bags of rubbish were collected; a great morning’s work and a real team effort.

More partnership projects are planned, hoping to make our environment a nicer place.

Tesco, Northampton ‘tweeted’ the following comment; ” I think we did a great job and hope to work with you again.”

East Hunsbury Parish Council also commented: “We were only out for an hour and look how much litter they collected. Just shows what can be achieved in a short space of time!.”

Internet Safety- Parent Guide

The Internet and new communications technology, like all environments and media, can be used and abused. Fortunately, the positive aspects far outweigh the negative. However, at Abbeyfield, we know how important it is to protect and educate young people on using the Internet and want to provide all our users with a safe experience.

Please click here to take you to the thinkuknow website, which is considered the very best internet safety site currently available. ‘thinkuknow’ is the education branch of a specialist police team called CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) and the site provides support and guidance about online safety to children and young people (ages 5-18), parents and childcare professionals. The site also features the CEOP Report button, which allows a child (or concerned adult) to report inappropriate or dangerous online behaviour directly to the CEOP officers for investigation. It is a hugely important tool in raising the profile of e Safety, but also in reducing incidents of grooming and cyber bullying’.

In January 2015, The NSPCC launched a public education campaign called Share Aware to help parents keep their children safe online.To view or download the Parent Guide produced as part of this campaign, please click here.
