Stay Safe this Christmas



Your local Neighbourhood Policing Team want you to enjoy the festive period. Please remember these valuable points to keep you and your property safe. Wishing all residents of the Waterside a Happy Christmas, stay safe everyone.

When Shopping:
  • Make sure your handbag is closed and you carry so a pick-pocket would find it difficult to get into without you knowing.
  • Never leave a bag unattended in a trolley, even if for a couple of seconds.
  • Try and keep wallets in an inside pocket and out of sight from a potential pick-pocket.
  • Keep your PIN number confidential.
  • When entering your PIN number at a terminal ensure no one can see you enter it.
  • Try to pay for items on a debit card rather than carrying large amounts of cash. If this is not possible keep cash to a minimum.
  • Before you leave your car, ensure all windows and doors are closed and locked.
  • Avoid leaving your purchases and presents in your vehicle. If you must make sure they are not on display, store in the boot and make sure the car is locked.
  • Park your car in a well-lit car park, preferably one that’s attended or displays the Park Mark logo.
  • Think about the item you are buying someone, are there any security products you could purchase to help them keep it safe. I.e. if buying a bike think about also giving a decent ‘D’ lock.
  • When loading your car in a supermarket car park, keep an eye on your trolley. It only takes a moment for someone to walk by and take something from the top of your trolley, whilst you may be putting something in the car.
  • Keep an eye on your shopping bags, there are many distractions. It only takes a moment for someone to pick up one of your shopping bags and walk away with it.

At Cash-points:

  • If you see someone suspicious hanging around, cancel the transaction and use another cash-point.
  • Before inserting you card have a look at the machine to check it looks normal.
  • When entering your PIN number make sure others around cannot see.
  • Avoid carrying large amounts of cash; only withdraw what you reasonably need.
  • Put your money and your cards away safely before leaving the machine.
If you are out for the evening:
  • Drink sensibly and stay with your friends.
  • Plan in advance how you will get home.
  • Save the number of a licensed taxi firm in your mobile phone. Always check the driver’s identification and never get into an unlicensed taxi. Text the licence plate number to a friend.
  • Don’t accept drinks from strangers or leave your drink unattended.
  • Whether you are male or female, avoid walking alone and never take short cuts through dark alleys or large open spaces.
  • Keep your belongings with you and your valuables out of sight, never leave your bag hanging over a chair or personal items left unattended.
  • Don’t drink and drive, and remember you may still be over the limit the morning after a big night out.
  • If you suspect a drink driver or have any information about any crime, please do not hesitate to report either via 101 or Crime Stoppers 0800 555 111.
     
At Home:
  • Don’t leave Christmas presents in view of a window.
  • If you are buying or receiving valuable gifts such as bikes, mobiles or electrical items register them for free atwww.immobilise.com in doing so you will assist the police in returning your property should it be lost or stolen.
  • Dispose of present packaging carefully as empty boxes left outside can advertise that you have goods inside.
  • Refrain from keeping large amounts of cash at home.
  • A secure home will reduce the chance of a burglary. Make sure windows and doors are locked every time you leave the house. Avoid leaving tools and ladders lying around that could assist someone get into your home.
  • When you go out at night make it appear that someone is home. Draw the curtains and leave a light on. You could always put a lamp or radio on a timer switch.
  • Never allow people into your home unless you are expecting them or have made arrangements with the company beforehand.
  • Never buy goods and services at the door or give away personal information.
If you are going away:
  • Check you have locked all doors, windows and sky-lights. If you have an alarm ensure it is activated.
  • Inform trusted neighbours and ask if they will keep an eye on your property for you and collect your post.
  • Use timer switches on lamps and radios so it looks as though you are home. Signs of occupation help deter intruders.
  • Remember to cancel any deliveries such as milk and newspapers.

Service Pupil Premium 2017 - Extra Funding for State Schools, Free Schools and Academies attended by Service Children in England


If your child attends a state school, Academy or Free school in England and has been registered with the school as a Service pupil, the school will be granted a Service Pupil Premium of £300.

The Service Pupil Premium (SPP) is provided by the Department for Education to enable schools to offer additional, mainly pastoral, support during challenging times, which could include anything from a Service parent being away, being injured on active service to bereavement. Funds are paid directly to schools; with Head Teachers and school Governors deciding how the funds are used.
Schools with Service children in Reception to Year 11 classes are eligible to receive SPP, but only if your child’s name appears on the school roll as being a Service child. The annual census takes place on 19 January 2017 and children must be registered with the school before this date. You are encouraged to contact the school and make them aware your child is from a Service family. This information is not shared with other organisations and is protected on the National Pupil database.
For more information on eligibility, please see the links below:
For any other queries regarding Service children contact the Directorate Children and Young People’s educational advisory arm, Children's Education Advisory Service (CEAS) via email: DCYP-CEAS-enquiries@mod.ukor telephone: 01980 618244.
