Student safeguarding will also be discussed by Avon and Somerset Police, covering topics such as sexting, online grooming and e-safety.

Organiser Mrs Suzanne Lawrence of King Alfred School Academy said: “It is important for parents to be aware of the outside influences that can impact on their child’s wellbeing.”

“When we held this event last November the feedback was overwhelmingly positive and we were encouraged to repeat.”

The meeting will be in E Block. If anybody would like any further information then call the school on 01278 784881 and ask for Mrs Lawrence.
