Friends Against Scams

Scams affect the lives of millions of people across the UK. People who are scammed often experience loneliness, shame and social isolation.

Friends Against Scams is a National Trading Standards (NTS) Scams Team initiative, which aims to protect and prevent people from becoming victims of scams by empowering communities to "Take a Stand Against Scams".

Friends Against Scams has been created to tackle the lack of scams awareness by providing information about scams and those who fall victim to them. This information enables communities and organisations to understand scams, talk about scams and cascade messages throughout communities about scams prevention and protection

Going up to Secondary School...

The Parents’ School Preference Adviser (PSPA) in conjunction with SENDIASS/Parent Partnership Service is holding a series of ‘Going up to Secondary School’ events throughout the county in September/October 2017.


These are free events for parents of all children in Year 6.  The focus is to provide information about moving up from primary to secondary school, including the application process and information and strategies on how to support their child with making the move.


We also invite parents of children in Year 5 with an EHCP/Statement.  The process is slightly different for these children so the events give parents timely advice and information on making their secondary school application.


Speakers will include staff from the Statutory Assessment and Resources Team, Educational Psychologists, the Parents’ School Preference Adviser and SENDIASS.  The events are funded jointly by PSPA and SENDIASS.
