Dear Parents/ Carers,

As we draw close to the end of another school year we wanted to get in touch with a few final messages.

We are sure you will be wondering who will be your child’s teacher for the following year. Outlined below are the teachers and support staff for each class:

Year 3Mrs JearyMrs Eckett
Year 4Mrs BudgettMrs Morant, Mrs Carver & Mrs Sparey
Year 5Mrs BeardonMrs Bircham & Mrs Sparey
Year 6Mrs Cockburn & Mrs NivenMr Bushby & Miss Roberts

It has been an incredibly full year with staff and children working their socks off academically and also with many interesting activities, visits and events to participate in. A big thank you needs to be said to all our staff for all that they have done to provide the best they can for the children at All Saints. 

Thank you also to the Friends for their support and time given to fundraising for the school. 

At the end of term Miss Seretny and Mrs Gamblin, who have been working with us over the course of the year,  will be leaving us at the end of term, we thank them for their contribution. However we may still see them from time to time to help with supply. We will also be saying a final farewell to Miss Lauren Neal. 

In September we will be welcoming Ms Paula Jones as the new Executive Headteacher, as she leads All Saints and North Elmham in the next phase of their development as a Federation of schools. Miss Tobin will be taking on her new role as Executive Deputy Headteacher and will be working closely with Ms Jones across both schools. Ms Jones and Miss Tobin have been working together over the last few weeks and have met with staff in order to implement the new Ofsted Framework and Curriculum. 

We will also be welcoming Miss Faith Roberts who will be a teaching Assistant in Y6.

Mrs Carol Jeary, as of September will take on the role of KS2 leader, with a focus on data across both schools. Mrs Sophie Cairns will be Early Years Leader across both schools. 

Message from Mr I

It’s with real mixed emotions that I will walk out of the door next Wednesday. I can truly say that I count myself honoured to have worked with such amazing children and wonderful staff for the last 12 years. I have gained so much from being part of our wonderful school community and want to thank you for your support over the years as we have worked together for the best benefit of your children.

We hope you have a lovely summer break, Ms Jones and Miss Tobin look forward to welcoming the children back on 4th September. 

Best Wishes,

Miss Tobin and Mr Isherwood

Malham 19 Day 2

What a brilliant day! We split into 3 groups: Group 1 have been climbing and abseiling, Group 2 have been up to Malham Tarn, pond dipping, Feb building and walking, and Group 3 have been caving. We might have got a bit soggy but it didn’t dampen our spirits. Follow the link to view the album from the day.

Momo Challenge Advice

Dear Parents/ Carers,

Over the past couple of days there has been quite a bit of concern raised by both adults and children about the ‘Momo Challenge’ which appears to have gone viral and caused quite a stir.

Having looked into it, it appears to be a hoax but the worry it has caused is nonetheless real.

Time has been spent in school to demystify the whole thing, explain what fake news and hoaxes are and what it means when something goes viral on the Internet.

Please follow the link to the BBC Newsround Report explaining how it is a hoax. It would be great if you watch this with your children (we advise KS2 children only) so that the same message is put across at home as well as at school.

This link will take you to the NSPCC Net Aware website which is designed specifically to support parents in understanding the many different social media networks out there and how your children might use them.

Thank you to parents who reported this to us so we could act upon it in a timely manner. It is so important that we work together to ensure the safety of our children, make them digitally literate, equip them to make the right choices when online and discern fact from fiction.

If you have any further concerns please do not hesitate to speak to your child’s teacher.
