Parent Carer Advice Sessions
Do you need advice or support? The Brent Carers Centre is a charity providing advice and guidance to family carers in Brent on a wide range of subjects including benefits. See their website for more details, or phone 020 3802 7070.

They can check your family entitlement to benefits and help with benefit claims and forms. They can look for grants for families who are struggling financially for things like uniforms or white goods.

They offer support groups, forums activities and respite for carers.

They are holding confidential advice clinics over the next few months on the following dates.
Monday, 28th January, Monday 25th March, Monday 20th May and Monday 15th July.

Please contact Patsy at Woodfield on 02082051977 if you would like to attend a clinic, or for any further information.

A Message from School Money, our on line payments provider
With online payments on the rise, Eduspot (as providers of SchoolMoney) would like to remind you to be extra vigilant when making payments.

Recently, there have been a small number of reports of attempts to defraud parents whilst using SchoolMoney. We thoroughly investigate all reports of attempts to defraud parents using our system (including separate, independent checks) and can confirm that we found we found that no fraud, data breach or malicious attack has occurred.

We believe however, that it important to remind parents to be extra vigilant when making payments online. NEVER give out your ATM pin to anyone – no system or person should ever require this to complete an online transaction. If something looks suspicious, do not complete the payment, close down your browser and start again making sure you are using a genuine website.

You should also ensure all system and app updates are applied to your PC or mobile devices and that they have reliable, up-to-date anti-virus software installed. Increasingly, mobile devices are the targets of malicious software so it’s important that these also have adequate protection.

Eduspot remains committed to protecting your online security and providing you with an easy to use solution to securely make payments to your schools. If you spot something that doesn’t look right relating to SchoolMoney, please contact us at support@schoolmoney.co.uk.

Weather changes
Please can all parent/carers ensure their child comes to school with the appropriate clothing for the current weather. This includes hat, scarf, gloves and shoes with adequate grip. Once again, reminder that all items of clothing must be labelled.
 
School uniform and P.E kit
Please ensure your child is wearing the correct full school uniform. This includes white shirt, black jumper, black trousers or skirt and black footwear. Make sure all uniform is clearly labelled.
Please also remember to send your child P.E kit in to school. if you are unsure of P.E days please contact school office to confirm. 

Makaton
Makaton is a language programme that is used in conjunction with speech to aid the pupils’ understanding of language and help them communicate with each other more effectively. Makaton is used across the school in lessons and break times. We would love for you to learn some signs so that you can sign with your child. See the We Talk Makaton website for more.
