Dear Parents and Carers,

As I am sure you have seen on social media and on the news, one of the challenges we are currently dealing with across Suffolk is County Lines: the criminal exploitation and grooming of children to carry and deal drugs and weapons. In order to ensure that we as staff, and you as parents, are kept as well informed as possible about these concerns, we have organised an information event for parents.

This will take place on Monday 20th January at 18.00 in the main hall at Castle Manor Academy and will last 45 minutes to 1 hour.

The information session will be delivered by colleagues from the Suffolk County Council team who coordinate education around gangs, drugs and county lines.

We hope to see many of you there.
