Week beginning 22nd April 2024

Year 4 returned safely from their Hawkhirst residential on the side of Kielder Water last Friday and had clearly had a wonderful time. Their behaviour was fantastic and they all got thoroughly involved in the activities. Thanks again to the staff for giving their time to this residential.

We are already gathering numbers for the Borrowdale residential in September. This is the Year 6 trip to the Lake District. We make full use of Derwentwater and the Borrowdale Valley, going canoeing, climbing, hill walking and ghyll scrambling. It is a fabulous trip in a beautiful location and we would love to take as many current Year 5s as possible. If you want to speak to me about the trip, please let me know.

Last Friday, the Boccia team were out at the county finals, playing against 14 other champion schools. They were brilliant and came a creditable 5th out of 15. Well done to them all.


An early warning for two days when school will be closed this half term. Monday 6th May is a Bank Holiday and on Friday 24th May, all of the Ouseburn Learning Trust schools will be closed for a joint training day. We then close for half term and reopen on Monday 3rd June. I have informed Clowning Around about the 24th May.
