Who are young carers?
A Young carer can be any child or young person up to the age of 18 who takes responsibility for looking after someone else - usually a parent or sibling, but it could be a grandparent or another relative.
Young carers look after someone else because that person may have:
- Mental ill health
- Difficulties with alcohol or other substances
- A long term illness
- A life-limiting illness
- A disability
- A learning disability
Young Carers Drop In
There is a drop in on Wednesday at 9am for parents and at break time in school for pupils.
The School Council launched our School House System recently and the children are keen to earn points for their house!! The houses were decided by the children and they are named after the Newcastle bridges - Tyne, Millenium and Swing. The house point system will be linked to our certificate system to avoid two reward systems running throughout the school. The details of this are in our new Behaviour Policy which will be released soon.
We are currently updating our Behaviour Policy and this will be available to you as soon as it is complete. There are quite a few changes to it.
Ofsted visited our school on Thursday 8th December. The report from the visit has now been published and you should have received a copy.
We became an Operation Encompass school from 7th November. We will be informed by Social Care if any child has been involved in, the previous day, a domestic violence incident. This will enable us to know about children who are experiencing difficulties and support them as they may need it. If you have not received a letter about this or would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
A big 'Thank You' to Vision Supply Agency who are continuing to supply one £5 voucher to our school on a weekly basis which can be used in the Metro Centre or Eldon Square. Children who have 100% attendance for that week will be entered into a draw and the winner will receive the voucher!!
In the light of the new 'Keeping Children Safe in Education' document we have recently updated our Safeguarding Policy. This is available on our Parents Section of the website under 'Policies'. We urge you to view it.

We would like to say thank you to parents and carers for continuing to help your children to learn their spellings!! We have recently looked at their books and there is a definite improvement in spelling across the school! The children are also improving their weekly spelling scores. Your support has had a positive impact!!
Family Support drop in - Paula Stone is available every Wednesday (term time) to give support with children's health, behaviour, attendance, problems at home and at school. You can also talk to a Nurse who will be there the first Wednesday of every month, in the Parents Room, Key Stage 1 building, 8:45 - 9:30am.
Thanks to Councillor David Cook for coming in to work with Eco and School Council, and Y3 to share ideas to help us to get involved in the local community.
Year 3 and Year 4 children using symmetry and different pencil marks to complete their pictures. To see the finished works go to the Year3/4 Gallery page - they're brilliant!!
