As many children and young people may receive ‘connected’ gifts over the festive season, the LSCB has produced a useful guidance sheet for schools to support Parents & Carers. The link below will give parents/carers advice on how to keep their children safe whilst online.
For parents/carers of children with SEND, Lancashire County Council’s FIND Newsletter is full of advice and local activities / groups available in the area.
If any parents or carers are interested in English and Maths courses for themselves, please email school on: email@example.com

Better Leisure Centres (West View and Fulwood, previously ran by Preston City Council) are currently running an initiative called Preston Sports Fest to help promote club sessions and showcase the opportunities for local people in Preston to come along and access.
Preston Sports Fest provides an opportunity for members of the public to come along to the club open sessions and take part free of charge for their first session. Clubs this year are holding up to 3 open sessions over the next 3 weeks, at different venues across Preston. Feedback from last year stated that open sessions provided a good opportunity to ease new participants into activities they would not normally have the confidence to try or didn’t necessarily know were available to them.
They attracted over 200 new participants last year as part of the campaign which also linked with the ‘I am Team GB Olympics’ initiative whereby many participants had a fantastic experience at a new club and continued to participate there. The programme of all clubs involved this year and the dates they are running sessions can be seen above.
