Newcastle In Bloom 2015 - Award
Over the past year the Gardening Club have been working tirelessly to ensure that the school grounds and garden look fantastic. In addition to doing this work they entered the Newcastle In Bloom competition and in the Summer Term were visited by the judges, who toured the grounds and spoke to the members of the Gardening Club.
On Saturday 10 October members of Gardening Club attended the Newcastle in Bloom, 25th Anniversary, Award Ceremony at the New Vic theatre. Here they received a Silver Award on behalf of the club in the Community Project - Schools Competition. We are extremely proud of this achievement in their first ever competition. We were also proud of the nomination they received for 'Outstanding Achievement' and even though they didn't win this category they were very grateful of the recognition.
Well done everyone who has helped the Gardening Club to achieve this fantastic award.
Sing For Your School Competition WINNERS!!
Today we were visited by The Sentinel newspaper and Dougie the Sunflower, the mascot for the Douglas Macmillan Hospice, who met the school choir and announced the fantastic news that they have WON! the Sing for Your School Competition. The children are now going to be singing as a solo choir at the Dougie Mac Christmas Concert at Britannia Stadium on Sunday 13 December.
Thank you to all the parents, grand parents and friends who voted for the children and of course a huge thank you to Mrs Cliffe, who leads the school choir and entered them to the competition.

BBC Breakfast - Eddie Hall
The children in Year 6 had an amazing opportunity to be on BBC Breakfast with strongman Eddie Hall and Mike Bushell, sports presenter for the BBC.
Sainsbury's School Games
Previously we achieved the Sainsbury’s School Games Bronze Award for the variety of sporting activities the children in the school were participating in. Throughout last year we have been taking part in even more sporting competitions at both a local and national level, which has resulted in achieving the Silver Award for School Games. This is a tremendous award and very difficult for any primary school to attain due to the number of competitions and the variety of sporting opportunities the children must receive.
Well done to all the staff, parents and children that have made this award possible.

Healthy School Status
We are pleased to announce that last term our school achieved ‘Healthy School’ status. To support us in the achievement of this award, we would like to ask for your support by sending your child into school with ‘healthy snacks’ for break times and packed lunches. Healthy snacks include healthy cereal bars, chopped fruit and vegetables or money for snacks from the kitchen hatch. All food from our school kitchen is provided by Chartwells Catering, who continue to develop new recipes and source quality products from reputable and, where possible, local suppliers.
Children are offered choice and variety each and every day. Fresh potatoes, vegetables, salads, yoghurt, fruit platters and fresh milk are always available. All food served, meets our ‘healthy school’ status and sugar and fat content are monitored whilst maintaining flavour.
