Friday Update – 6th November 2020

6 November 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

As you know, the children took part in a school-based Children’s Cancer Run just before half term. I have some amazing news to share with you. The children’s efforts have raised a magnificent £7300 for the North of England Children’s Cancer Research charity. This is an extraordinary amount of money that will make a huge difference to this charity, particularly during such difficult times. Thank you so much for all your support with this.

Parent consultations are very different this year. Thank you for getting in touch to request a virtual meeting on Microsoft Teams or a phone call from your child’s class teacher. If you haven’t yet made an appointment, unfortunately the booking system for Teams is now closed. You can still request a phone call by contacting the school office at 0191 433 4140 or

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Mrs A Whistler
