Parent Library visits

Many thanks for those of you who managed to come along to our parent/pupil library sessions last week. As I’m sure you can see, the library is now a fantastic resource to our school which our children are thrilled about. If any parents would like to use the facility and borrow a book then please do let us know. Alternatively it would be fantastic if we could get a Parent Book Club started – let either myself or Mrs Logan know if this is something of interest.


Next Tuesday 11th October our school photographer, Ken Macmillan, shall be in school taking both individual and family photographs. Please ensure your child is in full school uniform on this day. Can I also remind everybody that only children are allowed to be in the photographs that are taken by Ken.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Next Wednesday morning from 9.30am we shall be holding a Macmillan Coffee morning again for all parents and visitors. This was a really popular event last year in support of this worthwhile charity. If you can, please do pop into school.

Operation Christmas Child

You should have received a letter this week regarding our Operation Christmas Child project. This year instead of doing both a Harvest Festival and Operation Christmas child, we have decided to pick one (and alternate the years) and really focus our efforts on one at a time. All children who bring in a small item will be rewarded with a Wii Halloween Disco on Friday 21st October.

Holiday dates 2017-18

Please find attached the school term holiday dates for 2017-18 as agreed by North Tyneside Council. Please not that this list does not, as yet, include 3 Teacher Training days that we have to allocate.

Pupil Information

Please can I encourage you, if you haven’t already done so, to return our Confidential Forms to the school office as soon as possible. It is vital that we hold up-to-date information regarding contact details etc for all pupils.
