Suffolk New College are working in partnership with Suffolk County Council youth services to help get a better idea of the services in place for young people in Suffolk as well as how these services are rated by those who have utilised them.

This will help SNC & SCC to improve the services available and look to provide services widely requested. The survey is aimed at those 25 and under. The answers you give will be completely anonymous and will only be used by SNC Student Support services and the Local Safeguarding Children Board.

The survey can be completed online here: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/YPSafeguarding/

You’re opinions and views are greatly appreciated and will help form and improve services for young people over the coming years.

If you have any further questions regarding the survey please don’t hesitate to contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or the college This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If you are currently learning to drive or have recently passed your test then you will be well aware of the DVLA theory test including hazard perception. To help you to get ready for your test or just refresh your knowledge, Safer Driving for life is offering Free practice theory tests online here.

This is exactly the same test as delivered by DVLA with a pass rate of only 51%. On completion of the test it gives good feedback as to the areas for improvement. Why not see how you fair and if you have any areas you could improve on.

This will be to promote a healthy lifestyle and focus on healthy eating and exercise. There will be a variety of stalls offering different information, the Granary will be serving healthy options for lunch and you can make your own smoothie on a smoothie bike.

The immunisations we are able to offer to your students are as follows:-

HPV For girls only (1st dose to be given before their 18th birthday to be eligible)

MEN ACWY For all year 12’s & 13’s.

DTP All year 12’s only

Students 16 and over can consent to immunisations themselves. However we encourage students to discuss their immunisation options in advance with their parents or guardians. Students will be able to check their records on the day to see if they require vaccines or boosters. However, they are also able to check with their GP in advance if they so wish.

Students and Staff over the age of 18 are welcome to attend the stand in the atrium to check their records for any immunisation requirements and the nurses will be happy to help or give advice.

You can access consent forms here

Consent forms are available from student support if you wish to complete this in advance or on the day of the event (16 & over only)

Are you interested in improving services for families of children and young people with additional needs and /or disabilities in Suffolk? Do you have a bit of time you could spare?

The role of parent representatives (reps) is to inform decision makers about the experiences of parents and carers and to ensure that parents' views are fed into decisions about children and young people's services at a strategic level.

Come and meet the SPCN team and find out about the parent rep role. Each parent rep’s role is tailored to you and what you can offer so you don’t have to be able to give set amounts of time or be available on a weekly basis.

Training is provided and you also have the opportunity to attend regional or national conferences / workshops / training. Expenses and remuneration costs can be claimed for meetings you attend on behalf of SPCN.

Our first ever Parent Rep information day is being held on Monday 12th March 2017 at Kesgrave War Memorial Community Centre, Twelve Acre Approach, Kesgrave, Ipswich, IP5 1LF.
