West Midlands Police has been made aware of an App called “UNICO LIVE”. The app is publicised as age restricted 12+ and designed for young people to upload videos of them performing, singing and dancing etc.; it has come to our attention that there is inappropriate content on the platform involving young people which is being investigated.
The content does not appear to be monitored and we urge you to raise awareness widely to increase vigilance and reduce the likelihood of any child being sexually exploited.
The app has an emoji type unicorn picture on it.
Places are now full for both the carols and nativities
You will need to bring your tickets with you on the day of the performances to be admitted.
Unfortunately due to the size of the hall we will not be able to admit anyone who comes on the day who has not purchased tickets.

I’m writing from Harper Adams University to tell you about an event we are hosting for service children on Tuesday 7th January 2020.
Working in collaboration with Keele University, University of Chester, Oxford University, Staffordshire University, University of Derby and Reaseheath College, we will be officially launching ourselves as the West Midlands Hub for the SCiP Alliance (Service Children’s Progression Alliance) https://www.scipalliance.org/ on 7th January 2020.
The event is for service children from local schools and will culminate in a meeting to officially launch us being a Hub, and therefore able to promote and support children from military backgrounds with specific tailored events across our campuses.
I have attached a programme of the day and would like to invite you to attend the day with your service children (if you currently have any)
You can book on to the event via the website link below.

School Productions– Instructions on Photos and Video
I know as proud parents you will want to take photos/videos of your child performing in the nativity/school performances. However please note a number of parents have not consented to photos being taken of their children in school and some of the children in school are currently in care.
Please can I therefore ask that if you do take photos/video please only take images of your children where possible and do not post any images on your social media pages.
Please can parents/carers ensure that they are not parking in the box junction in the lane as this is causing traffic to be unable to flow in and out of the lane safely.
Many thanks for your support.
On Thursday 28th November Flight Lieutenant Ben Welch will be visiting the school. He will be arriving by helicopter and landing on the school field. He will talk with each class about his profession and what his job involves. Weather permitting, the children will also be able to look at the helicopter in closer detail.
