As you all will be aware the requirement for our pupils to access the internet and use digital devices has increased significantly since they have been asked to complete school work at home.
Can I ask that all parents and carers take a moment to please read through the latest Government advice relating to keeping our pupils safe whilst working online. It provides useful advice about increasing security and privacy, managing screen time on your digital devices at home as well as useful website links to various supportive agencies. Please click on the link shown below to view this advice:
This week Isabella from 7S has been working hard learning how to bake chocolate chip cookies at home. Here she is with her handiwork- She’s looking very pleased with herself and it’s easy to see why! Keep the photographs of what you have been up to coming!

I received a lovely surprise from The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme today. A certificate of thanks to all this years Oaks participants !
Our students in both Bronze and Silver groups undertook their Volunteering section of their award between September and December 2019 (the coldest months of the year) outdoors cleaning the full length of the Durham Coast beaches. The Heritage Coastal path runs for a total of 11 miles. Our students cleaned EVERY single beach along the length of this path!
They collected a total of just over 200 bin bags full of assorted rubbish plus some larger items including truck tyres, shopping trolleys and we even saw an abandoned car on one of the beaches?!
With the help of Louise Harrington from Durham Heritage Coast Partnership they also performed important data surveys on the rubbish found and learnt a lot about the environmental importance of keeping our coastline free of rubbish.
It is great to see how many hours we gave to this cause over a total of six months across both groups and the social value too.
All participants in this years cohort will receive a copy of this thank you certificate in the post to keep and we are proudly displaying it in school too – WELL DONE!
