This week, our assemblies were based on the theme of Mutual Respect and Tolerance  on Monday and we reviewed all our Character Education virtues.

Trust Carol Service

Choir worked really hard on Wednesday recording their 5 songs for the Trust Carol Service.  A green screen was used by Mr Stogdale, and he will combine our singing and readers with the work from the other academies. Thank you to parents and carers for ensuring the children were here on time and looking immaculate in their choir uniform. We look forward to seeing the final Carol Service which we will put on the website and social media.


We undertook our Christingle service virtually on Monday.  Many thanks to Miss Riley for organising the service and Mrs Smuk and Mr Nixon for preparing choir. All the children watched and joined in with the service from their classrooms after making their Christingle.

After School Clubs

Due to Covid advice, morning club will be cancelled until the end of term as well as Key Stage 2 after school clubs.

KS1 art club will still go ahead on Wednesday

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Nursery New Starters

If anyone has a child who will turn 3 years old during this academic year, please make sure they are registered for a place in Nursery. Contact the school office to put your child’s name down, so Mrs Marsh can contact you at the appropriate time prior to your child starting.

Household Support Payment

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council encourages low income working age families to claim a ‘Household Support Payment’. The support is funded by the DWP and is intended to assist low-income families over the winter period.

Dates for your Diary

COVID update

Due to increased COVID cases, we ask that parents wear a face covering if speaking to staff, coming to Reception or attending any meetings.

We also ask that children do not bring Christmas cards into school again this year to share with their friends.

Many thanks for your co-operation in this matter.

Lunch Menu

The menu for week beginning 13th December is Week 1. Please see below.

If your child usually has a packed lunch, please inform the academy office ASAP if they would like a Christmas dinner on Friday 17th December.


Congratulations to B3G who have won our Awesome competition this week with 97.1%.

Please remember to phone the academy if your child is going to be absent

Times Tables Rockstars

Practicing times tables is so important in improving maths and is a huge part of number work from Year 2 upwards. Please encourage your child to use their account to get as fast as they can which will help them be able to apply their knowledge to different areas of maths.

Congratulations to the highest coin collectors this week!
