It has been wonderful to have our children back in the academy this week.  They have settled back in so well, enjoyed seeing their friends and had great focus on their work.

Our assemblies this week have focused on the values on our logo: Inspiration, Aspiration, Collaboration, Celebration.

The children have also been really motivated to try to achieve one of this week’s daily Praise and Share awards.

New Signage

We are sure you have all seen our new signage at the front of the academy.  We have also additional logos inside the academy which the children and staff have felt so proud to see.

Return to School

Here are two links from Childline and the NSPCC that parents/carers may use whilst supporting their children on their return to the academy:




Thank you for the support from parents and carers this week in getting the children back into full school uniform and maintaining our expectations. We appreciate that sourcing clothing isn’t as easy at the moment, so please contact us if anyone is having any issues. School jumpers and cardigans can be ordered from: and Lollipops Middlesborough


On Thursday, Class RM had their pizza party for being the first class before Christmas to achieve all the letters of AWESOME by having the best attendance in school for 7 separate weeks. The attendance this week has got off to a fantastic start. Let’s see which other classes can achieve their AWESOME letters and have a celebration in their class!
