Governing Body

Community Governor Vacancy

Ysgol Harri Tudur / Henry Tudor School Governing Body has a vacancy for the voluntary position of Community Governor. The school is particularly keen to recruit new members whose skills would broaden the skills base of the Governing Body, and the role of Community Governor aims to ensure community representation and community interest on the Governing Body. Governors do not have to be parents of pupils at the school, but should have a genuine interest in education.

The minimum commitment for a School Governor is attendance at 3 afternoon meeting of the Full Governing Body. In practice, most governors become further involved in work of the Governing Body and attend sub-committee meetings which tend to take place in late afternoon.

Please note that all Governors are required to undergo mandatory training (induction and data) and will need a DBS through Pembrokeshire County Council.

This is a voluntary, unpaid position.

Anyone interested should contact the Headteacher's PA, Elissa Locke via email contact@yht.wales for more information and to request an application form. The closing date for applications is Sunday 2nd October 2022.

Charity

Sandy Bear Remembrance Tree

Sandy Bear, with support from the WI, have donated a remembrance tree for our well-being garden. Sandy Bear is a Pembrokeshire charity dedicated to improving and strengthening the emotional health and well-being of young people aged 0-18 (and their families), who have experienced the death of a loved one. We aim to reduce emotional difficulties in childhood and the prevalence of mental illness in later life that can result in a decreased quality of life, poorer educational attainment, social and health problems and increased vulnerability.

It is hoped that the tree will provide a focal point for children who have experienced a bereavement and a quiet place for them to remember a loved one.

Ysgol Harri Tudur/ Henry Tudor School is very proud of both our staff and our pupils and the achievements that we have made together since the 2018 core inspection. We would also like to thank many of our parents and carers and the wider community for their ongoing support.

Ysgol Harri Tudur is judged to have made sufficient progress in relation to the recommendations following the most recent core inspection.

Urgent Message for Parents/Carers

On Behalf of Pembrokeshire Education Service and Dyfed Powys Police

Urgent message for parents on behalf of Pembrokeshire Education Service and Dyfed Powys Police

Schools have and continue to work closely and effectively with pupils to ensure that they are supported in their learning and well-being. It is therefore a significant concern that numerous fake social media accounts have been created, targeting unacceptable comments towards schools and individuals. The content of these false accounts are completely inappropriate and a cause for concern.

Schools have reported that the vast majority of pupils have displayed a mature attitude and shown their displeasure with this content. Dyfed Powys Police will continue to work with schools to further increase awareness of the impact of harmful content and the consequences of such actions. We kindly ask that parents/carers discuss the appropriate use of social media with their children and continue to support schools in promoting respect and kindness.

The school also has the right to undertake appropriate sanctions against pupils if they are involved in incidents of inappropriate behaviour of this nature.

The following guidance is useful:

  • The Social media guides - UK Safer Internet Centre contains details of the different social websites that provide safeguarding guidance for parents to take action
  • Inappropriate content should be reported to the TikTok platform and these two links help:

Report Harmful Content | SWGfL
Report Harmful Content - We Help You Remove Content

The SWGfl states, “We’re working with TikTok, who know and understand the issue and are taking action to remove or delete content. We have escalated hundreds of accounts to TikTok for review and they are getting there slowly and responding when they can but we have totally bombarded them, so, likely to be a short delay on these.”

All school police officers are aware of the current issues and the police Chief Inspector has been made aware of this challenge in schools.

School Site

Parking and Dropping Off/Picking Up

All drivers are requested to use the designated Drop Off/Pick Up and parking sites whilst on the school site.

Please do not use the One Way road outside school for dropping off or picking up. This road is for designated vehicles only including our school buses. Please follow the instructions on the No Entry signs and use the correct spaces.

Please do not park in the Bus Lanes; these are for buses only. Parking in them is causing traffic disruption and is a potential risk to pupils and staff alike.

And please do not park on the pavements; this creates risk to all, but in particular makes access very difficult for our pupils who need to use mobility assistance and those pupils who have visibility impairment.
