Ghyll Head November 2014

Our Yr6 Ghyll Head residential is just around the corner! Children will be spending a fun-filled week in the Lake District, taking part in all sorts of activities including canoeing, zip wire and caving!

Last year, the trip was a resounding success, and we’re sure that our November residential will be just as much fun. Here is a film of all the best bits from our previous visit…

Strike Action

Dear Parents


You may have seen in the recent news that there are national strikes planned for Thursday 10th July involving 3 separate unions. These are the NUT, GMB and Unison. As a result some members of staff are supporting their union strike action. These staff have given me the appropriate notice of their intentions and I can now confirm that school will be partially open next Thursday. I am able to provide the normal staffing, education and care for just over two thirds of classes.

However the following classes will be closed on Thursday 10th July:

New Cross site Usher Street sit
Reception – RLG 2SL
Year 2 – 2SG & 2TM 6LJC
Year 6 – 6HK & 6LC


Children whose classes are open are expected to attend school (even if their brother or sister’s class is closed). Next week we have very exciting plans for SMILE week; these activities will continue as normal next Thursday for those classes that are open.

The members of staff striking have given this matter a lot of thought and the school and governors respect their decision to strike. These staff are a mixture of support staff, regular PPA cover staff and teachers (this is because 3 unions are all taking action on the same day).

I appreciate any such strike causes disruption, but I also appreciate your support and understanding in this matter.

Kind regards,

Stuart Herrington
