Message from Gateshead Council

Although cases in school age children across Gateshead had reduced, the number of COVID-19 infections in this age group has again started to increase in recent days following the return from half term. In the last four weeks just over 20% of infections were in those aged 5-14 years old and we are subsequently seeing cases transfer into older age groups. Therefore, we are still advising schools to remain cautious in their approaches to managing COVID 19 within the school setting.

Children in Need & Anti-Bullying Week

We are linking Children in Need Day this Friday with Anti Bullying Week.

To show our commitment to Anti- Bullying we are asking everyone to wear odd socks on Friday. This is the same day as Children in Need so children can also wear their own clothes, dress up, wear spots or other Children in Need t-shirts, ears or badges.

We are focusing upon showing kindness through our actions and particularly our words this year rather than asking people for donations of money.  If you wish to make a contribution, we will send it on to Children in Need , but children can still show their support and dress up without a donation of money.

School Clubs for Autumn 2

Here are the clubs running after-school for the 2nd Autumn half-term:

Autumn Half-term: Things to Do

Half-term is a wonderful opportunity to get out and about and visit some of the wonderful places and events in our part of the world.

Here are a few suggestions of things you might like to try! If you would prefer to do something more specific – check out our subject pages for places & events linked to your interests!

Harvest Festival – 18th October 2021

Once again, we are unable to get together for our Harvest Festival but our friend, Rev. Margaret Mackay, will be sharing a virtual assembly with us. During the week, children will be taking part in many harvest activities and their work will be displayed along with a pumpkin trail and a harvest table in the hall.


Play together at BALTIC Family Days this October Half Term. Enjoy five free days of play, suitable for families of all ages and abilities.
Take part in creative workshops, fun activities and family tours. No booking needed. Bring your family and friends and get ready to play! Explore the timetable of free activities below.

Black History Month (1st – 31st October)

What is Black History Month?

Black people have not always been treated equally simply because of the colour of their skin. Lots of people knew that this was wrong and wanted things to change.

What’s Going on in School?

This half term, there are some great sport related clubs which are extremely engaging, active, and fun! If you look on our Clubs page, you will see details of times and dates.

A message from Gateshead Council


Dear Parent/Carer,

Now the academic year is coming to an end we know, as parents ourselves, how difficult it has been
for you and your children. We do not underestimate the impact of having to self-isolate- sometimes on
many occasions. We are very grateful for the efforts you have all made and we should all be proud of
our contribution in combatting the pandemic.
