More than 500 million people around the world – many of them children – regularly use the app TikTok to create, view and share 60-second videos.

TikTok can be a great tool for self-expression and connect users around the world, so it’s important that children are aware of the potential risks and learn how to use it in a safe way.

This issue is becoming more and more prevalent amongst our young people.

Parents and carers need to be aware of how this can happen and how they can help to prevent it from happening

 

Redcar and Cleveland Council parent/ carer survey

Healthwatch South Tees is working to make sure local health and care services are meeting the needs of local people.  They do this by asking people what matters most to them and what improvements could be made.

As we all know that there are more young people struggling to keep good mental health.  We also know there is a national interest to prevent poor mental health (Public Health England 2017).

Healthwatch South Tees are asking parents to tell them what they think the causes of poor mental health in young people (up to the age of 25) are.  They are also wanting to know ideas for stopping young people from developing poor mental health.

Please would you take a moment to complete the survey by clicking the link below.

Sacred Heart Lockdown Drill

On Wednesday we carried out our planned Lockdown drill. This took place just before the end of lunchtime.

The students and staff did an incredible job of vacating the field and social areas and locking themselves in their rooms. The preparation before the drill proved invaluable. Well done to all involved. Thank you for the mature way you carried out this drill.

We will be carrying out our Lockdown drill on a six monthly cycle.

Ice Hockey Scholarship for Lennon

Sacred Heart would like to wish Lennon all the best as he embarks on the next part of his Ice Hockey Career. Lenon has already represented his country and is now going to train in Canada on a scholarship for two years with Langton Royals.

When Lennon went to Las Vegas to play for the Czech Republic last summer he was spotted by a scout from the newly formed Langton Royals  team.  It’s a big step for Lennon to leave behind his friends and family but the opportunity is too great and he is looking forward to the challenges and excitement ahead.

We look forward to seeing your name in stars Lennon. Good Luck.
