March Newsletter - Easter Trail

                                                                                                  Wednesday 22nd March 2023

Dear Parent’s/Carers,


As the term draws to a close, here are just a few pieces of information for next week and the Easter Holidays.


Next week we are holding our Holy Trail. This will be held on Wednesday 29th March. This year our Year 6 pupils, with the help of the local community, will be leading each scene depicting the last few days of Jesus’ life. Each year group will start the trail at a different time. Please note children in the mixed Y3/4 classes will take part as a single year group not combined (see below). The whole school will then join together for a short Easter Service at 11.45am. If you would like to join your child’s class on the trail, simply come in to school for the appropriate time or if you would like to join us for just the service please arrive for 11.45am.


PLEASE NOTE Reception Children will not be taking part in The Holy Trail.

Also next Thursday at 9.15am we will be holding our Termly Attendance Celebration. All children who have above 98% attendance will be receiving an invitation in the next days. So watch out for your invite!


During the Easter Holidays the Council will be again running Holiday activities and providing food for those children in receipt of Free School Meals. For more information and eligibility please call 0191 424 0118 or email


It has as always been a busy term there have been lots of in school activities such as Science workshops, Architects visiting Year 5, Year 6 meeting a mountaineer, an author visiting Year 3/4 and a Victorian workshop for Year 2 amongst others. Before the end of the term Year 2 will be visiting the Winter Gardens and Reception The Great North Museum. Next term is already starting to fill up as we already have organised a trip to the Discovery Museum for Year 1 and visit to the Great North Museum for Y3/4.


Thank you to all of those parents who took part in our recent Parent/Teacher Discussions. If you missed your call please do not hesitate to get in touch to rearrange. As a follow up we will soon be conducting a Parent Survey to gain your views about our school. Please watch out for a text containing a link.


Can I also say a big thank you to your donations for the Comic Relief Appeal. We raised 

 £231 in support of the appeal.


Finally, if you wish your child to have milk next term payments can be taken now, the cost for the full term is £9.10. Please note that all payments must be made by Tuesday 2nd May.  


I hope you all have a lovely Easter break and look forward to seeing you after the holidays.
