Dear Parents and Carers.

We are holding a Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday 29th September in the school hall and it will take place from 9:30am - 11:00am (and not 10:30am as stated in the news letter.) Donations of cakes and biscuits would be very much appreciated should you wish to do so. Last year's event was very successful so please call in and join us if you have an hour or so to spare, all are welcome. Please refer to the letter sent home with your child regarding sell by dates for donations.

The County Council's online admissions portal is now open. If your child is currently in Year 8, this enables you to apply online for a place at your chosen high school. Please be advised that your child WILL NOT automatically be allocated a place at high school - you will need to apply. The portal will close on Tuesday 31st October 2017. Should you have any queries, difficulties with the portal or miss the deadline, please contact Northumberland County Council on 0345 600 6400

If your child needs to take any medication (prescription/over the counter), please call in to the school office and complete our medication dispensing form BEFORE sending any treatment in with your child. ALL medication (including inhalers) should be clearly labelled with your child's name AND within its expiry date.

Under certain circumstances it may be necessary to contact you urgently to pass on information about your child or an incident within school. It is therefore essential that we have the most up to date contact details available for our parents, carers, or nominated 'first contact'. If you have changed your contact details since July 2017 and you think we may have not been informed, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can make any necessary amendments. A copy of our pupil data sheet is available on our website under Parent Information - Forms, should you wish to print it off and send it in to school with your child.

We have also had an increase in the amount of unclaimed lost property, most of which is not named. This makes it more difficult to reunite items with their owners. Could you please ensure that all items of uniform, including P.E. kit, are clearly marked with your child's name.

If your child is absent from school at any time, please ask them to come to the office on their return for a copy of any letters they may have missed. Thank you.
