Teacher Training Day

Just a reminder that school will be closed to students on Monday 7 June for a Teacher Training Day.

Family Matters courses

The short courses offered by Family Matters York give parents the opportunity to meet other parents and find out that they are not alone; to think about what they are doing with their children; and, in the light of the course material and ideas from other parents, decide if they want to make any changes.

The following courses, all of which are offered online via Zoom, are starting after half-term:

  • Handling Anger in the Family
  • Time Out for Parents – the Teenage Years
  • Time Out for Parents – the Primary Years

To book a place or for further information please contact Helen Atkinson on 07393 147259 or email helenatkinson@fmy.org.uk. You can also find more information on the Family Matters website.

Concerns over trespassing/vandalism on the railway

We have been contacted by Network Rail once again as they are concerned by the level of trespass on the railway in our area. Whilst there is no direct evidence that this involves Millthorpe students, it does involve teenagers in our area.

Most students will have been shown a video from Network Rail in form time to highlight the dangers of trespassing on the railway but we would like to ask all parents and carers to reinforce this message with their child at home. The video can be viewed here.
