Sheffield Parent Carer Forum Newsletter

The Forum is an independent, parent-led organisation established to bring together parents/carers of children with disabilities and/or special educational needs from across the city to support, share information and influence policy. The twice yearly produced newsletters are available from the Forum’s website. Click here for more information. Alternatively, a limited number of paper copies are available from Visitor Reception.


Programme of International Visits

In February 2019, the academy launched its Programme of International Visits which have been made available to students to provide them with the opportunity to engage in rich cultural and sporting experiences. Subject to interest, two international visits will be offered each academic year and take place during the Easter holidays, starting in 2020.

National School Breakfast Programme

The academy is proud to be part of the National School Breakfast programme; offering all students a free breakfast every school day from 7:30am in the Dining Room. Students can choose from:

  • Cereals – Cornflakes, Rice Krispies, Shreddies and Cheerios
  • Hot Bagels – with a choice of toppings
  • Porridge – with a choice of toppings

Having a healthy breakfast sets you up for the day and helps you to concentrate.
The right fuel for learning, every day.


The Red Box Project

Founded on the principle belief that all young people deserve equal access to education and that access to period products is essential to this, The Red Box Project was established.

Focused on tackling period poverty by providing young people with sanitary products, the academy is proud to be part of the organisation’s work through making products available to its students, as well as being a donation collection point.

More information about the project can be found here.

Parent View

Parent View gives you the chance to tell us what you think about your child’s school.

Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. We will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when.

By sharing your views, you’ll be helping your child’s school to improve. You will also be able to see what other parents have said about your child's school.


Private Fostering

It is a legal requirement for a parent/carer to inform the local authority if they are in a private fostering arrangement so they know the child is safe. Private fostering is when a child or young person is looked after for more than 28 days by someone who is not their parent, legal guardian or close relative.

To find out about the support available to private foster carers and why you must let the local authority know of the arrangements, contact the Connected Persons Team:
