Excellence for all
Latest News – 4.3.22
I’m not sure where the first week has gone, but it has been a great one!
Just a few things to keep you up to date with as we race towards Easter and the summer term.
Have a great weekend and stay safe.
World Book Day
A great day was had by all. Some photos should be appearing on our website very soon! Thanks to you the parents and grandparents for helping to pick and make some great costumes.
Red Noses
We have Red Noses on sale via Parent Pay. Children will receive them during the week of Red Nose Day (Friday 18th March 2022).
Any unsold can be purchased from the school office in the week leading up.
Climate Change Show
Today children in years 1 – 6 watch a special show. The show itself was set by the seaside and within a great storyline plus humour and interaction. There were sea creatures characters and info on the weather, tides, the moon, recycling and what we can do to look after our environment. Mostly, it was fun (even the rain)! 
Parents’ Evening
Details of how appointments will be organised will be with you next week!
Urgent Care

9am until 9pm opening hours for South Tyneside Urgent Care for Children service 

With effect from Monday 7 March, the nurse-led service at South Tyneside District Hospital will be open every day from 9am until 9pm.  The temporary change has been necessary due to unforeseen staffing challenges.  Parents are being reassured that the service will continue to be available for 12 hours every day to see and treat the vast majority of children who attend hospital with urgent, but not life threatening, problems.

The temporary change means the service will open one hour later at 9am (instead of 8am) and close one hour earlier each day at 9pm (instead of 10pm).  Please see attached updated NHS information leaflet.
