Peat Rigg

This week saw our eldest children head off into the wilds of the moors to Peat Rigg!

For some it was their first nights away from home, for others a chance to push themselves and test their limits and fears but for every child it was an amazing opportunity to bond with their friends at the start of an important year of school.

From the first moment to the last every child was AMAZING! They conquered their nerves and threw themselves into every activity with enthusiasm and energy. They climbed trees, scaled rivers, zipped through the trees and scrambled in caves, and were an absolute credit throughout.

They supported each other and helped to keep the group safe, all the while having the BEST time!

We are so proud of the group, and hope you enjoy looking at the photographs of our adventure below!


Each week we have an ‘Awesome Attendance’ competition for the class or classes with the highest attendance. The class with the highest attendance will receive a letter and the first class to spell out ‘Awesome’ receives a treat for the whole class.

Which class will be the first to receive that treat?

This weeks winners are……….

Missed Appointments

We strive to accommodate parents/carers with appointment times within the academy.

Unfortunately we have noticed that many appointments have been missed, occasionally this may be due to unforeseen circumstances.

If you have to cancel and/or re-arrange your appointment, please ensure you contact the academy as soon as possible.

Failing to turn up for an appointment and not contacting the academy to cancel it has an adverse effect on other parents/carers appointment times. This can also take valuable staff time that could have been utilised by other parents.

As we are all being affected by the cost-of-living crisis, we have a small stock of preloved uniform and coats/jackets that parents can come and purchase, all we are asking for is a donation. This will be open for you to come and have a look on a Tuesday & Thursday between 08.50 – 09.15 and 14.40 – 15.00 via the main office.


You can also get your children’s uniform here.

Lollipops have a preloved rail out on the shop floor with various items on including polo tops, trousers, sweatshirts/cardigans, shoes, plimsolls, summer dresses etc. All items on the rail are free for anyone to take, they just ask for customers to be considerate of others when taking items. There is a box for anyone who would like to make donations which we then add to the rail.
