PLEASE KEEP YOU DISTANCE - As it has now been declared that Hull has the highest rate of COVID-19 infection in the country, it is really important that everyone does their part. We realise that the Stepney Lane Entrance is busy at the start and end of the day. It is not the easiest place to get to. Please may we remind parents to keep their distance from other parents, to wear masks and also to be prompt when bringing or picking up their children. Once you have left your chil

There is no doubt that we want to be in school with your children to give them the best learning environment and the best learning opportunities. If we have to close a ‘bubble’ of classes due to COVID-19, we are doing this to keep everyone as safe as possible from this virus. Children still need to learn. It is quite clear that many pupils and their families found the spring and summer lockdown difficult. Not being in school resulted in many children not learning as well and
Today, we had our one minute silence at 11am to remember all of those who gave their lives in the wars. We usually take our pupils to St. Mary’s Church this morning for the annual Remembrance Service but, due to the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions we are not allowed to do this. Our thoughts are still with our dear friends at the church, led by our Father Phil. Classes have been making their poppy displays. Unfortunately, we were not able to decorate the church this year.

As part of Antibullying Week, which is from 16th - 20th November, the national campaign usually has one day as an Odd Socks Day. We have decided to have people wearing Odd Socks ALL WEEK. They must be odd but they can also be bright, highly colourful and wacky so they really stand out.

Please click here to access the page on Threadworm. As this advice tells us, simple hygiene steps are the needed to keep this at bay and it is not a reason for pupils to stay off school.
Threadworms are common in children Threadworms are a very common problem, particularly in childr

In a bid to get the children more physically active since the lockdown and summer holidays, we have booked the company 'Skip2b Fit' to come in every Tuesday after half term to deliver a 30minute skipping session across all year groups. Each session lasts between 25-30mins (20mins for EYFS) and includes skipping exercises followed by a 2 minute skipping challenge. Children will be working to improve their score as the weeks progress, improving their fitness, confidence and all
Dear Parents and Carers, First of all, many thanks for all of your support during the first half of the autumn term. Our pupil attendance has been the strongest for years at 96.8% which just reinforces that you value the benefits of your child being in school. These are certainly difficult times for all of us but we want to make your child's experience at school as positive as ever, both in terms of academic opportunities and being safe and healthy. We truly hope that school
NHS Information Looking after a child or young person's mental health There are times when we all feel the strain. As parents and carers, there are ways we can support children and young people to give them the best chance to stay mentally healthy.
