The area outside our school is busy in the morning and at the end of the school day. Some drivers park irresponsibly, potentially placing children in danger. We have been working with the Local Authority who have helped create a ‘5-minute protective Walking Bubble’ around our school so that everyone can travel safely and actively to school. Our walking bubble map can be view below.
We are asking those who are able to walk, cycle or scooter to school as much as possible. Also, for those who must drive, to use their car as little as possible for school journeys and when they do drive park at least 5 minutes from the school gates and walk the rest of the way.
Can we remind parents to please park considerately to the local residents.

This week we have started our art block, painting. We started by looking at different brushes. We described what was the same and what was different. We then experimented making different marks with the brushes.
Important information – EUSS
I am writing to you regarding the European Union Settlement Scheme (EUSS) and how to access free support with this matter.
If you or the child’s other parent is from the European Union, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein, and was living in the UK on or before 31 December 2020, it is important you read this letter and consider all dependent children. Leaving the EU brings with it change to the immigration status of people from the countries previously listed. If this is you and you want to remain in the UK legally, you must apply to the EUSS by 30 June 2021. You must also apply for all babies, children, and young people. If your child was born in the UK or you think you may have permanent settled status, in most cases they will still need to apply.
Apply online at: https://www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizensfamilies
If you want help to apply, you can get free specialist advice from local organisations. Their contact details are on Newcastle City Council’s website: https://www.newcastle.gov.uk/eu-settlementscheme
Your Homes Newcastle (YHN) can help and they have an agreement with the Council around protecting and using information you share. You do not have to be a tenant of YHN to contact them about this. YHN’s EUSS Team can be contacted by email at: EUSS@yhn.org.uk or you can ring 0191 2771190 (9am – 4:30pm, Mon to Fri). It’s important that you get advice as it can affect you and your family’s rights to live, work and claim benefits in the UK.
If you require any support with this, please contact the school office on 0191 2625552.
Mr M Smith
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.
