Year 8 Lukin Parents Evening
We would like to remind you that the Year 8 Lukin Parents’ Evening will take place on Wednesday 2nd December from 5.00 p.m. until 8.00 p.m.

This will be an opportunity to speak to subject teachers about your child’s academic progress.  Students have been making appointments with their subject teachers and these should be recorded on the relevant page in their Planner.  Students are expected to attend the evening with their parents or carers.

Please note that parking is not permitted in the Leisure Centre car park.  There will be spaces available in the school car park which can be accessed by turning right at the roundabout at the front of the building.

If you have not already done so, please complete and submit the reply slip contained in our email which was sent last week.

We look forward to meeting you on this occasion.
Mr T James – Director of Learning for Year 8

Facebook Alert!
It has just been brought to our attention that a number of students in a Chelmsford secondary school have been receiving inappropriate messages via Facebook and Facebook messenger.  These messages are not coming from other students in the school or from individuals who are personally known to those students.  They are, however, persistent and have been sent to a number of people.

We would like to advise you and your child to block messages and/or ‘unfriend’ individuals with the following Facebook profile names:  Chloe Packard, David Kingston, Neal Caffery, Neal Spinson, Tiffy Gerhardt and Chloe Powell.

We have reason to believe these are highly unlikely to be genuine profiles and therefore the faces and dates of birth associated with the accounts are unlikely to reflect the true identity of the sender.

Please be aware that Essex Police have been advised of this online activity from these accounts.

We would also like to take this opportunity to encourage all students who use social media sites to utilise the profile security settings to ensure that they do not receive unsolicited messages.  Students should take care only to befriend individuals whom they know in person and be wary about what personal information they share online.
Mr S Emberton – Assistant Headteacher
