Some of our children had the opportunity to attend the ‘Mayor at Home’ event at Shildon Civic Hall on the afternoon of Friday 5th July. The children who attended presented a range of their learning to the Mayor and invited guests. Our children had a fantastic time and were proud to have been chosen to attend the event.

In Partnership with the Department for Education, Family Action and Magic Breakfast, we are able to offer breakfast bagels to every child in our school, every morning. The project aims to ensure more children receive a healthy breakfast at the start of their day and in doing so improve educational attainment. Our bagels are given out during the start of the school day and our children thoroughly enjoy them.
We are delighted to inform you that we have been reaccredited with the Gold Level Rights Respecting School Award. Your children are a real credit and the assessors commented that the children are “confident and articulate pupils who enjoy school and are extremely proud of their rights respecting status.” The full report is available from this link – RRS Gold Report – May 2018
Mrs. Simpson helps our children have the right to be safe.
Convention of the Rights of the Child Article 19 – All children have the right to be safe.
As a Rights Respecting Gold Level School, our children’s safety continues to be of the utmost importance to our school and within our local community.
Mrs. Audrey Simpson, our School Crossing Patrol, recently celebrated 15 years of working at our school, helping our children and their families to stay safe.
Mrs. Simpson continues to work with relentless enthusiasm and dedication in an effort to help our children to cross the road safely.
Mrs. Simpson was invited to a recent assembly where the children gave their special thanks for her hard work. Shildon Town Councillor and School Governor, Cllr. Shirley Quinn, also attended our School Assembly to pledge her support for this very topical school and community issue.
To help celebrate this special occasion, Miss Johnson and our Junior Road Safety Officers designed, promoted and led a competition in school where children were invited to design a poster to raise the profile of road safety around our school.
Parents and carers were invited to vote for their favourite posters. Thank you to everyone who voted for their favourite poster! Miss Johnson and the Junior Road Safety Officers enjoyed talking to parents and carers about our road safety messages and the children’s posters, as well as thoroughly enjoying counting all of the votes!
Our winners of the competition, Beth, SJ and Grace enjoyed a bag of ‘Bike Goodies’ including reflective stickers and a water bottle, and our overall winner, Beth, was very lucky to receive a fabulous bike very kindly donated by Mr. Horan.
Our Governors, children and staff continue to be increasingly concerned about the speeding and parking issues around our school which is making crossing the road extremely dangerous indeed for our children and their families.
Thank you to Mrs. Simpson, our Junior Road Safety Officers, concerned parents, staff and Governors who continue to strive for a safer school community so that our children have their right to be safe met.
UNCRC Article 28 – All children have the right to be the best they can be.
We are delighted to share with you the outcome of our school’s recent Ofsted Inspection which was indeed successful and resulted in a “Good” judgement in every area of the Ofsted Criteria. You can download more information and a copy of the Ofsted Report here or visit the Parents Letters Page of our website. With thanks to all the wonderful children in our school, our talented and dedicated staff, our committed Governing Body and the parents and carers for their support. Well done everyone! We are indeed delighted with the outcome.
We are all very concerned about the safety of our children when they are arriving and leaving school. Every child has the right to be safe – please park away from the school and never park on the zig zag lines or block the view of the crossing patrol. The safety of our children is everyone’s responsibility – please keep this in mind if you bring your car to school. Thank you from our children, staff and governors.
