Summer Carnival

Our Summer Carnival this year will be on Wednesday 17th July 2.00pm – 4.00pm. We have been blessed with lovely weather in the past and we have our fingers crossed again for this year. As with most things we do, this event will only be successful with the help and support of our community.
How You Can Help:
• If you are having a clear out, please donate any toys, games or books for us to sell on our Nearly New Toy Stall. These must be in excellent condition – no jumble please! Bring to school from Monday 8th July.
• Cakes and buns – please do some baking for us to sell on our Cake Stall. Bring to school on the morning of the Carnival.
• We also need prizes for our raffle and tombola stall. If you have any unwanted gifts, or non-perishable food items, tins etc. bring these to school from Monday 8th July.
• We do need helpers on the day from 12 noon to prepare and set up, and to help with stalls. If you can spare some time to help us on the day, please see Liz Graham in the School Office.



We would like to say an enormous WELL DONE to our Y6 children for the fantastic effort they have put in this week and across the year. They have had 6 tests this week and performed to the best of their abilities, they should ‘feel proud’! It has been a pleasure being with them this week and watching their focus and effort.

Y6 SATS Week

Next week is a very important week for our Y6 children. They have their compulsory SATs tests, which they have been working towards all year. We wish our children lots of luck and know that they will do their very best to show themselves, us and their families what they are capable of. If your child is in Y6 please help them to feel as ready as possible by having plenty of rest and a nice relaxing weekend.
Thank you for your continued support with your children and their learning. They have done fantastically well this year and we really want them to enjoy showing what they can do!

Community Week

Community Week
This week has been Community Week in school. Our focus has been ‘The World Is Ours” We wanted to build on the protest we did about funding in schools and so encouraged the older children to investigate an issue that they felt was important to them. The younger children went on a walk round the local area and looked for things they liked and things they would like to improve about Shirecliffe.
Each class will also vote for a girl and boy good citizen who will be presented with a poppy or cornflower badge in assembly tomorrow.

Fair Funding for WCM!

What a week it has been. It was amazing in town on Monday as we stood back and watched the children, staff and families it brought a tear to our eyes…we were so proud.
All the way through this our aim has been to fight for things to be fair for your children, they deserve the best and we can be satisfied now that we have had our say…we just now need to hope people listen.
Your continued support has made an impossible task slightly easier. We need to make sure we share our love now with the lovely Jama and Mrs Cusworth to make their final week with us as memorable as possible.
Kath Palmer has really struggled and won’t be in school next week but any well wishes will be passed on to her so please leave any messages in the office.
Finally, it has to be said that our very own Mr Read has been an absolute inspiration to us all, he has given up so much of his time and energy to fight for what is right so to him we say an enormous thank you…you are our hero!

Thank you to all the families who came along this morning and also to families who have sent their support in other ways. Please sign the letter on the link below and email it back to us at school!

Please share this with as many people as you can!
