  • Staying Safe

    Published 13/03/19
    Dear Parents/Carers,
    Further to information published in the York Evening Press and circulated on social media regarding children being approached by strangers. Pupils will be reminded of ways to stay safe during form time tomorrow. These will include:
    1. Walking to and from school with friends, not on their own
    2. Ignoring anyone who approaches them, and walking to school/ home as quickly as possible
    3. Walking along their usual route and staying in well lit areas if it is dark
    4. Reporting anything suspicious to parents/school
    Please support these messages in your conversations at home and report anything suspicious to the police.

  • Mo Mo - Important

    Published 22/02/19

    Dear Parents and Carers, 
    Please be aware of an internet challenge that children are seeing on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Whatsapp and also on the game Minecraft. 
    The challenge is called Momo. It involves the appearance of a horror character on the screen. This character asks them to accept the challenge and says it will come and 'get them' during the night if they refuse. If they do accept the challenge it encourages self harm and eventually suicide. 
    This is something that all parents should be alert to. 
    J. Louth
    Assistant Headteacher - Care and Guidance

  • Can you help our school?

    Published 17/01/19

    Behind this school sits a network of volunteers who make sure that it is well-managed, and delivering the best possible education to all our children. As governors and trustees, these volunteers set the school’s strategic priorities, monitor performance, and support the school’s development. The majority are not education professionals, but are drawn from among parents and members of the local community. Every person brings different skills and life experiences, and we welcome volunteers from all backgrounds.

    We are now looking for committed and enthusiastic people to join us as governors and trustees. If you’re interested, we’d love to hear from you.

    If you are interested in becoming a Trustee or Governor, please click here for more information or contact the Trust’s Governance Adviser, Sophie Triffitt, on or 01904 554210.
