posted 14 Jan 2021, 23:15 by Chris Metcalfe

School is closed on-site to all pupils due to today's icy conditions which are making travel to school and movement within our grounds unsafe for our families and staff. All learning will take place remotely and teachers will be in touch shortly with further details about this. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.  Stay safe and where possible please stay at home.

Year 4 Bubble Closure

posted 12 Jan 2021, 03:50 by Chris Metcalfe

Critical Worker and Vulnerable Children Places

posted 6 Jan 2021, 05:53 by Chris Metcalfe   [ updated 15 Jan 2021, 02:50 ]

In order to ensure a fair and transparent system, schools and academies across Doncaster have worked with the Local Authority to develop and agree a key criteria process to help prioritise which children will be able to access face-to-face provision over the coming weeks. With schools and academies needing to ensure that they have the staffing capacity to deliver both remote and face-to-face learning simultaneously, while also ensuring that schools are as safe as possible, it has been necessary to limit the numbers of children learning on school premises. This unfortunately means that not everybody who has requested to receive face-to-face provision has been invited to do so. Our first priority is children considered vulnerable. After that, those families where both parents (or single parents) are critical workers have been given initial priority. This is to ensure that the only children receiving their learning in school are those who have nobody at home who can safely support them. Where it has been possible, schools have worked hard to offer spaces to all those who have applied and are eligible. Where capacity and resource has made this not possible the criteria have been used to decide how to offer places. 

Places for children of critical workers have been allocated using this process. If you no longer need a place please advise us straight away so we can allocate it to another family.  If your circumstances change and you subsequently need a place, please contact us to discuss this before sending your child to school.

PE Achievement

posted 15 Dec 2020, 05:24 by Emma Shepherd

All of our year1 to year 6 pupils took part in a multiskills competition during this half term. The children worked in their classes to complete a range of sporting activities and challenges. Our results were then entered into a virtual competition within the trust. We are proud to say that we came 2nd place in the competition out of 8 schools that took part! Well done to all of our children for their fantastic achievments. Keep it up!

WOW Active Travel

posted 3 Dec 2020, 02:14 by Clare Linklater

Since November we have been using the Wow Travel tracker every day to help monitor our pupils active journeys to school. I am pleased to report that our baseline showed that 66% of children travelled actively to school. In the last month that has shown an increase to 74%! Well done to all involved. I look forward to seeing our numbers increase as the months become warmer and lighter!
