Spring Term 2019/20 Week Beginning 10th  February 2020


Dear Parents and Carers, 

Another busy half term, children have worked ever so hard and we are all ready for a rest. Children will return to school on Monday 24th February.

Year 4 Residential

As part of your child’s curriculum we would like to offer a mini residential experience to to prepare them for life and the up and coming events in Year 5 and 6.

We are working with the West View Project which is a company in Hartlepool, who specialise in outdoor learning for children in Primary Schools.

We have organised the following trip to educate and give them some experience at camping outdoors!

The children are only away 1 night but the experience is over 3 days.

Day 1 – Children come to school as normal. Throughout the day they will be looking at their destination, working in small groups erecting tents, shopping for themselves with a budget and cooking food on an outdoor stove.

Day 2 – Children arrive in school and after registration etc will go on the bus. They will go shopping to purchase their food supplies and then will head to Pybus Campsite (this is a Scout campsite), in Kirkby – Stokesley. Children will then use their skills from the previous days to set up their camp. Children will complete some outdoor activities and games as well as helping to cook their meal on an outdoor stove.

Day 3 – The children will continue to complete some outdoor games and activities before heading back to school. Children will arrive back to school at normal time, if not a little earlier.

Tents, stoves and food etc are provided in with the cost. All the children need to take are clothes and a sleeping bag!

This trip is heavily supervised by adults as your child’s safety and wellbeing is extremely important to us.  As a school we are heavily subsidising this trip in the hope that all pupils will attend and benefit form from such an amazing experience and opportunity. The cost of the trip is £35.

Group 1 activities will take place on 24th/25th/26th June

Group 2 activities will take place on 1st/2nd/3rd July

There is a space for all Y4 children if they wish to go. You can pay for this trip via pay parent pay from today. Closing date is Monday 30th March.


Staffing Update

Mrs Digirolami has had a beautiful baby girl called  Mariella, both mum and baby are doing well and we are looking forward to meeting her.

Sadly, Mrs Stokoe is leaving Bexhill Academy after 9 years service. On behalf of Wise Academies we would like to thank her for all her hard work and wish her well in her future.

Packed Lunches

Please can we ask if you are sending grapes in, that they are cut in half (lengthways) for safety.
