Most of our school news is now published on our website, via our Class Dojo app (class based) or twitter account (whole school). We also frequently update parents with all the various exciting activities taking place via text message.
We love to share individual stories and news with you about your child’s day in school…so please make sure you have our Class Dojo app!
Change to School Inset Days
As you know all teachers are required to complete 5 training days during term time each year. However, it would seem sensible (in order to continue to support you with provision for Key worker & vulnerable children and to continue to provide remote learning) to postpone the inset days on Friday 29th January and Friday 5th March.
Consequently, school will continue on those days and the designated staff training will now take place on 19th & 20th July instead. The Inset day on 18th June will go ahead as planned. So, school will close to the children for the summer on Friday 16th July 2021.
To clarify, the 3 remaining Inset (staff training) days for 2021 will be:
· Friday 18th June 2021
· Monday 19th July 2021
· Tuesday 20th July 2021
If your child would normally receive a free school meal, you are eligible to apply for a £15 contribution (per child) to support you this half term week.
Please note, the scheme only applies to children whose parents receive certain benefits and does not include those eligible under the universal infant free school meal scheme.
Note: the closing date for applications is 4.00pm on Friday 30 October. http://www.durham.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals
