 What's in the news:

This week we were notified that we have been awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark. Primary Science Quality Marks have been awarded to 200 infant, junior, primary, middle and special schools to celebrate a commitment to excellence in science teaching and learning. So far, since its national launch in 2010, over 3000 schools across the UK have achieved a prestigious Primary Science Quality Mark and we are one of them.


The Primary School Quality Mark programme ensures effective leadership of science, enables schools to work together to share good practice and is supported by professional development led by local experts. It encourages teacher autonomy and innovation while at the same time offering a clear framework for development in science subject leadership, teaching and learning. Schools that achieve PSQM demonstrate commitment and expertise in science teaching and leadership.

The Primary Science Quality Mark is led by the University of Hertfordshire, School of Education in collaboration with the Primary Science Teaching Trust.


Jane Turner, PSQM National Director said: “Gaining a Primary Science Quality Mark is a significant achievement for a school. The profile and quality of science teaching and learning in each awarded school is very high. Children are engaging with great science both in and outside the classroom, developing positive attitudes towards science as well as secure scientific understanding and skills. Science subject leaders, their colleagues, head teachers, children, parents and governors should be very proud.”

Our application was co-ordinated by our Science Subject Leader McGrath - who has over the past twelve months worked with all members of the school staff to enhance the teaching of science across the school. We must send our thanks to Mrs McGrath for her professionalism, commitment and dedication during the past twelve to ensure that our application was successful.

It is lovely to report that Miss Dodds was appointed this week to a permanent teaching position at Morpeth Primary Academy from this coming September. Making the decision to return to the North East, this appointment is just what we had all hoped for. Congratulations Miss Dodds.

What has happened in school this week:

Tolkien Class have completed their end of KS2 assessments this week. Following all their hard work, they have all had the opportunity to demonstrate their numeracy and literacy skills. It is always very nice when the last assessment has been completed and the children can now concentrate on completing their learning with us by undertaking a range of exciting projects. I must extend my thanks to Mrs Pye, Miss Hall, Mrs Lamb and Miss Dodds for all the time, patience and commitment they have shown in supporting the children as they have prepared for these assessments.

Year 3 visited the World Museum in Liverpool on Friday this week. Taking their learning on Ancient Egyptians that step further on the visit, saw them taking part in an Ancient Egypt workshop, learning about hieroglyphics, studying artefacts, matching materials to artefacts and then exploring all the museum had to offer. They all particularly enjoyed seeing the mummies (real life ones) and the prehistoric area linked to our learning in the Autumn Term. 

What has made me smile this week:

The confidence, resilience and calmness of all the children in Tolkien Class as they tackled their KS2 assessments made be smile broadly this week.

What's in the news:

Hector from Milne Class shared the news with everyone in Celebration Assembly that he now has a new baby sister - Nancy born this week. We know her will be an amazing big brother to Nancy. We send our love and congratulations to the Neild family.

A message for all the children in Tolkien Class:

SATS don't measure sports

SATS don't measure art,

SATS don't measure music

Or the kindness in your heart.

SATS don't see your beauty,

SATS don't know your worth, 

SATS don't see the reasons ,

You were put upon this earth.

SATS don't see your magic,

How you make others smile,

STAS don't know how quickly,

You can run a mile.

SATS don't hear your laughter,

Or see you've come this far,

SATS are just a tiny glimpse,

Or who you really are

So sitting at your table,

With a pencil and your test,

Remember SATS aren't who you are,

Remember you're the best!.
