These children entered into a competition and their poem was chosen to be published in the book. We are very proud of them!
Sports Day – Friday 5th July
Morning Session – Rec/Y1/Y2
The session will start at 9:30am.
Parents/carers can head to the school field, once they have dropped their children at school. Please stand well clear of the tracks until the children are all out on the field. You will then see where your child is and can sit at the correct track.
If you arrive later than 9:15am, you must enter the school field by the gates at the bottom of the school drive. This will be operated by a member of staff.
When the event finishes (approx. 10:30am), please leave the school field via the main double gates at the bottom of the school drive. There will be a member of staff there to direct you.
Afternoon Session – Y3/4/5/6
The session will start at 1:30pm.
Parents/carers should queue at the bottom of the school drive, until the gates are opened by a member of staff. If you need to leave before the end of the event, this is the gate to leave through.
At the end of the event, the children will be taken into school and will be dismissed from the usual doors, so please stand well back on the yard to wait for your child. If you wish to collect younger siblings, you can then head round onto the infant yard, where the staff will supervise their collection. Please wait patiently until staff bring the children to the doors they usually leave from.
This will assist greatly with a smooth operation, as well as safeguarding the children.
All children will be a given an ice lolly during the session.
Younger children must not be allowed to play on the Trim Trail during the event, unless accompanied by an adult.
Thank you and we look forward to you joining us on Friday.

All of the children in Year 5 and 6 should now have received a child and an adult ticket so that they can attend the South Shields vs Hyde match on Saturday 23rd of March. The game will Kick Off at 3pm and you may see some of our children waving flags for the players just before the kick-off.
The children are also welcome to join the team from the foundation from 1.30pm for fun on the 3G pitch which will include football, hockey, rounders and other games.
If you are in another Year Group it would be lovely to see you at the match tomorrow and you can get reduced priced tickets from the club website.
Please remember that children must be accompanied by an adult to gain entry into the ground.
Today the children from Reception to Year 6 had the chance to meet some of the South Shields first team players and ask them some great questions about football and the club.
Every child in Year 5 and Year 6 will also receive a child and an adult ticket to see South Shields play against Hyde on Saturday 23rd March, KO 3pm. We really hope you will save the date and make a day of it – additional tickets can be purchased online and on the gate. Although Kick-off isn’t until 3pm, there will be activities and games on the 3G pitch which is at the ground (Mariners Park) from 1.30pm.
Some very special children will also be chosen to be flag bearers when the team enter the pitch for kick-off!
Watch out for our Easter raffle where there will be the chance to win a signed South Shields shirt too.
From time to time our children may come across content online which gives them ‘Yukky Feelings’ (makes them sad, scared or worried). It is especially important that children know to follow the Kidsafe Rules which we teach at Ashley:
- Walk Away
- Say No
- Tell a Trusted Grown-Up
There will always be risks posed to children, both online and offline and it is important that we give them the skills and strategies to be able to deal with these risks appropriately.
As grown-ups we can make sure we are aware of age restrictions on Apps and games, use privacy settings, block and report users or posts that are worrying and above all, communicate with our children. Remind them not to accept friend requests from people they don’t know and to check with a Trusted Grown-Up before sharing personal information.
As always there are some really useful websites where you can get a wealth of information.
- Childnet International
- UK Safer Internet Centre
- Parent Info
- Internet Matters
- NSPCC Online Safety
- Common Sense Media (I use this one lots)
Please also be reassured that when children are working online on school hardware that key strokes and content accessed/searched for is monitored and only age appropriate content is available.
