Head of School's Welcome
Ofsted Report

Welcome back!

We're very pleased to welcome our new Head of School, Mrs Dawn Dacombe. Click on the link above to read the Head of School's welcome.

Class Names

Following our very successful theme of naming classes after different places, we are this year naming them after local landmarks. Pupils will be finding out lots of fascinating facts about the River Tees, Durham Cathedral, Redcar Beacon, Charlton's Pond, John Whitehead Park, Billingham Forum, the Transporter Bridge, Captain Cook's Monument, Castle Eden, Roseberry Topping, Saltburn Pier, Stewart Park, Saltholme and Preston Park.

Meet your child's new teacher

On Wednesday 25th September, we will be holding our first 'Meet the Teacher Night'. Come into school and meet your child’s new class teacher; see where your child sits in class; and get a good insight into your child’s education. This will be a very informal event and will be held in your child’s new classroom. During this evening, you will be given a chance to speak to your child’s teacher and find out how your child has settled in. Our new Head of School, Mrs Dacombe, will be around school on this evening and is very much looking forward to getting to know you all.
