Hello to all our children, parents and carers,

How proud we have been of all the children in the academy this week.  Some of our youngest children have adapted to the new rules so well, and they have been a credit to you all. Thank you for all your support and encouragement.

The messages that you have sent to your friends this week have been so lovely and show how much you are all missing each other. I am sure that children receiving these messages have really appreciated them, and you will have made their day. The love has definitely been spread around Dormanstown again. We will publish on Facebook any more messages that are sent in.

Community and Pastoral Newsletter

We hope that everyone has had chance to look at the Tees Valley Education Community and Pastoral Newsletter.  It celebrates all that has been undertaken over the last few weeks by all the academies in our Trust.  Take a look at our achievements on pages 4, 5 and 9.


Online Safety

As children have had opportunity to spend more time online at this time and it has been in the news this week, we thought a reminder about online safety is important.  Please make sure that your children’s settings on their devices are appropriate and monitor what they are accessing. There are some useful videos to support parents through the link below to the CEOP website; the third video on this page is particularly helpful going through all elements of online use with practical advice.

Their recommendation is the best way you can protect your child is to establish a positive relationship with them around their life online.  Talk to them – not just once but have ongoing conversations as part of your family life.
