‘Aiming Higher’

Important Information for Nursery (main Nursery room) and KS1 Thursday Cooking Club

We have just been informed of a positive case within school and, following a careful risk assessment and contact tracing, the positive case has been in close contact with the above named groups within 48 hours of them developing symptoms of COVID-19.


If this affects your child (and you should have had an email or a phone call if it does) they will need to isolate until midnight on Sunday 4th July.


Infection rates in North Tyneside are exceptionally high right now and many schools are having to close bubbles or ask identified close contacts to isolate.


It is never what we want to happen for any of our children, but we have a legal responsibility to follow the test and trace regulations from Public Health.


If you have any questions, please email 


Kind regards

Claire Withers


COLLECTION FROM AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS - IMPORTANT INFORMATION - All after school clubs collections will be from outside the main school entrance so please turn up at the collection time for your child (to avoid having lots of people waiting around outside of the building). The only access point will be through the front gates for safeguarding reasons. No other external gates will be open (e.g. the gates to the line) - this is because our afterschool childcare children have supervised access to our yard and field and it would not be safe to leave other gates open. Please remember to wear a face mask on site where possible and, unless your child is in Y6 and has permission to walk home, we will expect an adult to collect every child. Thank you for your support with this so that we can ensure safety for all.
