A settled start to this half term with flu immunisations in school as well as school photographs. Our assembly themes were Personal Safety and Responsibility, linked to Bonfire Night, and our Character Education theme was Courage.
Thank you from the Footprints Food Bank
The Foodbank was very grateful for our donations from Harvest Festival. Thank you to everyone who made donations.
In support of the Royal British Legion, and to commemorate the lives of all British and Commonwealth armed forces servicemen and women who died in the two World Wars and later conflicts, we have appeal items in the academy. Please see the suggested donations for the items below.

Teesside at Christmas Appeal 2021
We would like to support the Teesside at Christmas Appeal who are looking to give filled shoe boxes of gifts and essentials to those who would go without at Christmas. Please use the link below or look at the posters below to find details of what is recommended to go in the shoe boxes. If anyone would like to donate a filled shoe box or to send items in that we can make boxes up in school, then please do so by Monday 29th November, so we can give them to this small, local charity.
Term Dates and P.D. Days
Action for Happiness
This month’s theme is New Ways November. Action for Happiness are encouraging you to try something new! Learning something new or getting involved in an activity that really absorbs and interests us is great for our wellbeing. Keeping our brains active is not only good for us physically but it can help you feel you are flourishing as you see yourself make progress with a new skill, or just make you smile as you make a mess and decide to start again. 🙂 Being playful and trying new things is important, as is remembering that it’s OK not to get it right first time – change “I can’t do it”, into “I can’t do it…yet!” This month’s calendar is full of ideas to help you decide what to try next.
Congratulations to B2S who have won our Awesome competition this week.
