Can I remind parents / grandparents or taxi drivers if you arrive at school via a taxi, that parking or even just dropping off, directly opposite the school entrance is prohibited between the times of 8.30-9.30am and 2.30 – 4.00pm. A number of drivers are stopping allowing children to jump out of the cars and driving off. Between the times stated on the yellow parking signs this is illegal. If you arrive in a taxi please ask the driver to not park, stop or wait there either.


Ramadan this year is expected to start around the time of May 17. If any of our children are going to observe the fast, please could parents let us know. We do always advise that children are allowed access to water whilst at school.

School Lunches

As part of Vision Academy three of the primary schools have gone out to tender for the catering contract for school lunches. Two companies have tendered for the contract to begin in September. As part of the tender process they came into school for us to taste some of their food. Five children from Year 5 were included in the tasting and had a thoroughly enjoyable day going home rather full by the end of it! All food sampled was delicious.

Warmer Weather

We hope you are enjoying the lovely warm weather! Please can you ensure that children have sun cream applied before they come to school. They must have with them a water bottle to keep hydrated throughout the day.

Family Safety Week

Family Safety Week is from 23rd – 27th April 2018. We think the knowledge from this awareness raiser isn’t just important for parents to know but also children. The RoSPA website has loads of useful information about being safe at home, in school and more. Furthermore, the website has fun, free, downloadable activity sheets. We think these resources will be really helpful for teaching children the importance of being safe.

Year 5 Bike Ability.

Next week, Year 5 will have their Level 1 Bike Ability training on either Thursday or Friday. Please can you ensure your child has a bike, helmet, waterproof coat and trainers with them on the day of their training. The children have been informed today of which day their training is taking place. Thank you.

Early Years

The children have come back to school brilliantly this week. We have enjoyed introducing our new topic ‘The Deep blue sea’ and this week’s story which has been ‘Billy’s Bucket’. The children have been writing about what they would see if they looked in Billy’s bucket.

Nursery have been loving learning in the outdoor area this week, can we please remind parents to ensure that children have sun cream applied before the session and bring sun hats to wear. Thank you.

Year 5/6 Hockey

On Wednesday our 5/6 hockey team went to Egglescliffe School for the Stockton Hockey Finals. They all played really well together as a team and we had brilliant goals from Jack N, Finley W and James N. We also had Ted T in goal and he made some fabulous saves. Overall in our tournament we came third and all the children received a medal. We are waiting to hear if we have qualified through to the Tees Valley Finals. Well done to all the children who took part.
