Year 2 Pirate Day 15.2.19

Year 2 will be having a Pirate Day on Friday 15th February to celebrate the end of our topic ‘Land Ahoy!’. Children are invited to come into school dressed as pirates or explorers but please do not buy anything especially for the day; jeans and a colourful t-shirt is fine. We will end the day with a pirate picnic.

KS1 Christmas Performance: Costumes

Thank you to all parents/carers for providing their child/children with costumes for tonight’s performance. However, as a number of children have forgotten their costumes, could I please ask that parents and carers bring in these costumes as soon as possible as we are performing to the rest of the school at 2:00 this afternoon.

I appreciate that some of you will be unable to do this due to work commitments. Children without costumes for this afternoon’s performance will wear their uniform instead.

Operation Encompass

19th November 18

Dear Parent/Carer


This is a reminder that our school is participating in the Operation Encompass partnership scheme between local schools, academies, colleges, nurseries, community health agencies and Cleveland Police.

Operation Encompass was set up to provided early reporting to school about any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of school hours to which a young person attending our school has been exposed, and which might then have an impact on them attending school the following day.  This information will be shared on school days during term time and, when incidents occur on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, the police will contact the relevant school the following Monday.

Information will only be shared with the school by the police where it is identified that a young person was present, witnessed or was involved in a domestic abuse incident.

A nominated member of school staff known as a Designated Safeguarding Lead Officer (DSLO) has been trained to liaise with the police.  They will be able to use information that has been shared with them in confidence, to ensure that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children or their families.  The DSLO will keep this information confidential, and will only share it on a need to know basis, for instance, to teaching staff for the child or young person.  It will not be shared with other pupils.

Operation Encompass was first introduced in Plymouth in February 2011, and has proved very effective in providing appropriate and timely support to young people affected by domestic abuse.  This initiative has been implemented across the whole of the Cleveland Police area.  If you would like some more information about it, you can view it online at

We are keen to offer the best support possible for our pupils and a recent review of Operation Encompass showed that is it beneficial and supportive for all those involved.

Kind regards

Tuck Shop

School Council would like to announce that tuck shop will begin again this week. Tuck shop will now be held on a Thursday morning playtime. Children are allowed to bring 50p in to school to buy a snack if they would like.


Reading at Home

I spent some time last week looking at the children’s  reading records. It is good to see many reading regularly, but it really is important that all children read a minimum of 4 times a week. Fluency and speed of reading, coupled with good comprehension are key skills that will really help the children to reach their full potential now and into adult life.  I have given several children across school Head Teacher Award stickers for consistently regular reading, but I really do hope I can give out many more when I next look at their records.

For older children, the reading plus work is key in developing their skills, and we are pleased with the way they have embraced this resource, but they should still be reading books.

Please do make sure that an adult signs the reading records so staff are aware of how much practice they are getting at home.

We encourage the children to understand that their learning is for them and that the more they learn in school then the more choices they will have as an adult in choosing jobs. This really does help in developing intrinsic motivation.

Many thanks for your continued support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to approach class teachers.

Kind Regards
Elisabeth  J Lee
