Weekly Round up

This week our Year 6’s have had a really busy time! 

Firstly, the girls were involved in their final Rubies session, before a group of students attended Outward Academy – ahead of the full Y6 transition which happens next week. We can’t believe they are nearly ready for secondary, but are sure they will have a great time when they move on with the next phase of their education. 

On Thursday the full Y6 cohort had a day to remember, donning their leavers hoodies before a trip to the cinema and afternoon spent playing games and rock pooling on Redcar beach! 

 Elsewhere, B3G welcomed in parents for a fun session based on the learning they have completed this half term, and our Power of Women group headed out to learn more about their project, which will later be fed out to other children within the academy. 

Next week sees transition for all year groups, and all the staff are very excited to meet their new classes and learn more about them! 

Wishing all our families and community a lovely weekend! 

Class Showcase

This week it’s the turn of Nursery and Reception to show us what they’ve been up to.


This term in Nursery we have been learning all about Minibeasts. On Monday we were fortunate enough to have a visit from a local beekeeper. The children learnt all about bees and even got to sample some honey!


Last week we went to Redcar College and took part in a range of fun sporting activities. We did lots of exercise and worked collaboratively with our friends.

We have also been reading The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch. We have role-played the story and made zip lines and pulleys to move the basket from the White Cottage to the Lighthouse so Mr Grinling could have his lovely lunch. 

We also made a range of fabulous models from the story using recycled materials.    

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.

Diary Dates and Reminders

Sports Day Afternoon

Come and join us for Sport’s day on Monday 17th July beginning at 1pm.

Passion for Fashion

CBBC are looking for budding young designers aged 10-14 years old, (they must be aged 11 by September 1st 2023) 

In each episode we will see young creative minds come together to create bold and colourful outfits reusing, re-claiming and upcycling fabulous fashion by using only vintage, second-hand and sustainable materials. 

The children will need to be great designers but do not necessarily have to be great with a sewing machine as they’ll be paired with a creative who can help them cut/sew/stitch/paint their outfits within a few hours!
