Our School Prospectus

Please see the updated Children and Young People interactive sheet with contact details of mental health and emotional wellbeing services available in County Durham as well as some links to National support services.

We hope you and your families have enjoyed a safe and relaxing Summer, and are now looking forward to your children returning to school to continue with their education. We are all keen to welcome our students back to St John’s and we have been planning, preparing and following Government guidelines to ensure that we can provide a safe environment for both students and staff.

Watch out for your post this week for details about your opportunity to virtually Meet your Tutor next week via Google Meet. Lots more info in the letter that has been sent out.

ThinkUKnow have created a new short video guide, developed in collaboration with The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment (Ukie), to help parents and carers to understand:

  • How in-game chat works;
  • How it might be abused by others, and;
  • What they can do to help keep their children safe whilst using in-game chat

Here is a collection of downloadable self-help guides that may be useful to parents/carers and students. Some are aimed at adults but the ideas and suggestions in them can still be relevant for young people.
