  • Spelling Bee

    Fri 22 Mar 2024 Mr Rowlands

    In our main hall this morning, children have been taking part in our Spelling Bee! Six children from each year group from Y1 to 6 were been picked to represent their year group.  


    After hours of competition, it all boiled down to six finalists, one from each year group.


    Brody, Harlie, Masroor, Dolly, Ryan and Aryan were the six finalists.


    In the end, it all came down to a showdown between Masroor from Year 3 and Harlie from Year 2. 


    And Masroor was the winner! 


    We're so proud of everyone who took part - you all showed what amazing spellers you are. 

  • 30 hours free childcare for working parents

    Fri 22 Mar 2024 Newcastle City Council

    30 hours free childcare for working parents


    Some working parents will be entitled to an extra 15 hours early education or childcare for their three or four year old child. If you are eligible you can have 30 hours instead of the usual 15 hours over 38 weeks per year. This can be stretched over more than 38 weeks. Eligibility starts the term after your child’s third birthday as with the universal entitlement. Please click the link for more information.

  • Parents and Carers Online Safety

    Fri 22 Dec 2023 Mr Rowlands

    Our friends at Gem Education have created a short video for parents and carers about online safety at Christmas. If your child has asked Santa for a new piece of technology this Christmas, this video will be worth a watch to give advice on how to keep them safe. 

    Please just tap the link below.

  • NHS Healthier Together

    Fri 08 Dec 2023 Mr Rowlands

    There is a new website from the NHS called Healthier Together.


    We think you will find this website useful as it gives advice on things like whether you need to keep your children off school or not if they are feeling unwell. 


    This page provides a helpful chart of green, amber and red which shows which illnesses you can go to school with, and those which require your child to stay off. 



    There is also helpful information on the website about a range of matters including measles and high temperatures.

  • School Dog

    Fri 17 Nov 2023 Mrs Eatock

    Dear Parents/Families,


    As you may know, we are lucky enough to have a new addition in  school in the form of another English Springer Spaniel, just like our much loved current school dog, Ted. Like him, Daisy is Kennel Club registered and has all up to date vaccinations and health checks.


    Daisy will be based in Year 5 and will be trained to the same high standards that Ted has been trained to. All children will have training on how to behave and stay safe around a young puppy and dogs in general. 


    Please remember that no other dogs are permitted on the school grounds.


    Many Thanks


    Mrs Eatock

    Head Teacher
