BRIGHT Trial

Students in Years 7 and 8 are invited to take part in a research project, led by the University of Sheffield. The aim of the project is to find out how best to help young people look after their teeth and prevent tooth decay.

It will involve students completing approximately six questionnaires over a three year period and allowing a dentist, who will visit the academy, to complete a dental assessment three times over the three year period. Parents/Carers will also be asked to complete some simple questionnaires, if they want to.

Students who consent and are selected to participate in the project will receive up to £15 in shopping vouchers.

A copy of the student assembly, delivered on 10 December 2018, and the letter to parents can be found below. Consent forms have been issued to students. Should you have any questions about the project, please contact Mr Colliver at the academy.

Information About Private Fostering

Under the Children Act 1989, there is a legal requirement for local authorities to be notified of any private fostering arrangements. Children’s Social Care has a duty to undertake assessments and checks, and to provide support and advice to the child and to the private foster carer. In Sheffield, private fostering work is undertaken by the Families, Adopters and Carers Team (FACT), in Children’s Specialist Services.

The Advisory Service can be contacted on 0114 205 3535. Children’s Social Care can be contacted on 0114 273 4855.

Please see the fact sheet below for further information.

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.
