EU families need to apply for EU settled status and this must be done before June or children will no longer be entitled to an education and you may lose all entitlements.
Thanks to parents and staff who have donated Christmas gifts for The Boste. The below donation was collected yesterday and is greatly appreciated by The Boste.
We’d also like to thank staff at the ‘Carden Avenue’ store in South Shields for their kind donations.
Thank you for the continued support.
