If you know any parents/carers who are not receiving our school emails, and would like to, please get them to contact me in the school office with their email address.
Parents in South Tyneside who are yet to apply for a primary school place are being reminded that the deadline to submit their application is looming.
The deadline for applications for a primary, infant or junior school place for September 2021 is 4.30pm on Friday 15 January.
The easiest way to apply for a school place is online by visiting www.southtyneside.gov.uk/schooladmissions
Deputy Leader, Councillor Joan Atkinson, said: “While I appreciate people will have celebrated a different sort of Christmas this year, I hope everyone enjoyed a relaxing time over the festive period.
“With the festivities now over, this is the perfect time to sort out the important tasks that may have been overlooked in the run-up to Christmas.
“I would encourage parents and carers to fill in the admissions form online before the deadline. Failure to do so could seriously jeopardise the chances of securing a place for their child at their preferred school.”

Due to the current regional and national situation, this term’s meetings between staff and parents will take place via telephone phone calls. We will allocate ten minutes for every call and I have asked the staff to take no more than the allocated time. From Monday there will be a link on the school website and Facebook page where you will be able to book a ten minute time slot with your child’s class teacher.
The phone call you receive will be from the school number 0191 4552862 or a number with “No Caller ID.” I appreciate that some people will be signing up for times around school pick up time. If you are signing up for a time around this time (between 3-4pm) could you ensure that you are contactable.
The parental consultations will give you a chance to update us on how your children are settling into school and our new routines, as well as for us to let you know of their successes and the things they are working on so far. I appreciate that typically we look forward to letting you see the children’s books. Unfortunately, this year, this can’t happen. Hopefully, in time, this will be able to happen because it is a joy to be able to see the wonderful work your children produce each day. I call into the classes each day and I am seeing a really interesting curriculum, great attitudes to work and wonderful relationships between staff and pupils.
