An invitation for staff and pupils to participate in the joint Police and Crime Commissioner/Derbyshire Constabulary public consultation

I am writing to advise you about “Over to You” - the Police and crime survey for Derbyshire.

 We would be delighted if members of your staff and pupils would be able to take 5 minutes and take part by clicking on this link  to the survey www.derbyshire-pcc.gov.uk/oty

 One of the main duties of the Police and Crime Commissioner involves regularly talking to communities to ensure that their views are heard and represented and that they are well informed about policing in their neighbourhoods, especially in these very difficult and austere times.

 The survey takes less than 5 minutes to complete and is for anyone who currently resides in Derbyshire. This is a great opportunity to hear from different people across the County and for us to also provide information which we think is important about current policing in Derbyshire.

Ultimately this and other public consultation will inform the Derbyshire’s Police and Crime plan.

Also note a change to what kind of drinks will be allowed: From the start of next term (September 2015) we have a new policy for Drinks in the Academy for students in Y7-11. Fizzy drinks (Coke, etc) / energy drinks (Red Bull etc) can affect behaviour and concentration in a negative way. They must not be brought into school, if found then they will be disposed of. Over the Summer break, several new water bottle filling stations will be installed around the site for students.

It was great to see so many parents at the Yr13 Leavers’ Ceremony last Friday evening at Horsley Lodge. The first part of the event saw the presentation of Yearbooks and Subject Prizes to the students followed by tea, coffee and biscuits and the chance for parents and students to say goodbye to their teachers. Then, the disco fired up, tables were moved back and the dancing began. After a break for food and the presentation of the ‘silly’ awards – brilliant trophies designed and made by Mr Holmes – the dancing continued into the night. Favourite student Tweet: “Had the best night saying goodbye to my sixth form family! Thank you so much @KHCA6thForm for 2 inspiring years and for a great send off”. Thank you to all who attended and helped to organise the event.
