Academy Expansion

Academy Expansion

The Academy Council of Saxon Hill Academy and the Shaw Education Trust would like to hear your views on a proposal to expand the School on its site by the addition of extra classrooms. 

We have secured funding from the Department for Education and are currently progressing with preliminary designs. We would therefore like to consult with parents, staff, the local community, neighboring schools and other stakeholders about this proposal.

Think U Know

New parents and carers website

We're proud to announce that a Beta version of our new website for parents and carers is now live at www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents. The new site offers a completely refreshed suite of articles and guidance on all aspects of child internet safety.

Please take a moment to give us some feedback by taking a look around the new site and then completing the user survey (this appears as a pop up when you visit). Your comments and ideas will help us shape the final content and improve our resources and support to families.

Families can visit www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents to access advice and support on how to keep children safe from sexual abuse, both online and off. Articles provide guidance on topics as diverse as: challenging harmful sexual attitudes and promoting positive behaviours; helping a child with autism negotiate life online; supporting a child who has been sexually abused; and dealing with a range of online issues such as sending nude selfies and viewing pornography. Users will find films, downloadable guides and useful links to support organisations.

Families can also use the website to access the CEOP Safety Centre (www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre) where they can report abuse and exploitation direct to CEOP.

Please do start using the new site in your work with families now, by:

  • Signposting parents and carers to the new site in any training or advice sessions you offer
  • Being familiar with the site yourself, so you are able to give accurate information about the content to schools, families and other agencies

Watch this space for new resources to help you run support sessions based on the new website, which we'll be publishing early in the New Year.

Cybercrime: Preventing young people from getting involve

The National Crime Agency (NCA) has launched a public awareness campaign to highlight the increasing number of young people engaging in cybercrime.

The #CyberChoices campaign targets parents of 12-15 year olds who may be involved in hacking or other kinds of online crime without their parents' knowledge. The campaign, also aimed at professionals who work with children and young people, highlights the range of criminal activities that children may be involved in, how to spot signs of potential problems, what the consequences could be and importantly, signposts better ways for young people to use their technical skills.

For further information about cybercrime, and to watch the short film produced for the campaign, visit www.nationalcrimeagency.gov.uk/news/765-campaign-targets-uk-s-youngest-cyber-criminals

For advice from the NCA on how to help young people avoid the risks of getting involved in cybercrime, and how to work with parents and carers on this issue visit: www.nationalcrimeagency.gov.uk/crime-threats/cyber-crime/cyber-crime-preventing-young-people-from-getting-involved

With best wishes from us all in the CEOP Education Team

Family Fund

Family Fund

Family Fund is the UK’s largest charity providing grants for families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people, helping 72,043 families last year with over £33 million of grants and services.

We believe that all families raising disabled and seriously ill children and young people should have the same opportunities as others. Beginning with the most vulnerable, those on low incomes, and considering all conditions against our disability criteria, we aim to make a difference to outcomes for children and young people with disabilities or serious illnesses and the lives of the families raising them across the UK.


We provide grants for a wide range of items, such as washing machines, sensory toys, family breaks, bedding, tablets, furniture, outdoor play equipment, clothing and computers. It can be a struggle financially, emotionally and physically for families raising a disabled or seriously ill child, and these grants help break down many of the barriers families face, improving their quality of life and easing the additional daily pressures.
