Update 29 April
Message from our local Police Safer Schools Officer.
We find ourselves in unchartered territory during this International Covid19 Pandemic. Whilst the majority of us are having to deal with new ways in which we live, work and educate, a small number of individuals are taking advantage of this situation and using it for their own criminal gains.
There have been a number of identified scams that have been posted to online social media and mobile phone direct messaging platforms, email and door to door contact. We would like to encourage both parents/carers and students alike to stop, think and research the authenticity prior to engaging or re-posting any message in order to prevent becoming a victim of criminal activity.
The link bleow is from law enforcement, government and private sector partners that are working together to encourage members of the public to be more vigilant against fraud. You can find our Little Book of Cyber Scams and animations videos for online safety and fraud prevention at:

How can I protect myself from Coronavirus?
We can all play our part. To protect yourself and others, basic hygiene such as washing our hands regularly and using tissues when we cough and sneeze is the best way to slow the spread of germs and infection. Posters are around our campus giving advice on hand washing and good hygiene for staff, students and visitors.
